NBC says 'Megyn Kelly Today' not returning to the air

An unnamed source told NBC News that Ms. Kelly's representatives will meet with network executives and said it is "extremely unlikely" she will remain with the company.

News announced Friday that Megyn Kelly Today will not be returning.

Charles Sykes/Invision/AP "Megyn Kelly Today" never quite picked up.

Kelly found herself in trouble when, during a round-table discussion on a Tuesday segment of "Today", she wondered aloud why the use of blackface for a costume was automatically racist. Curry broke down in tears as she said goodbye on air: "For all of you who saw me as a groundbreaker: I'm sorry I couldn't carry the ball over the finish line, but man, I did try!" I'm old enough to have lived through Amos "n" Andy where you had white people in blackface playing two black characters just magnifying the stereotypes about black people.

Kelly, who is reportedly in talks with NBC about leaving the network, was seemingly out of place in the much friendlier morning environment.

NBC News staffers were calling her show a "disaster" well before this latest controversy.

"The fact is, while she apologized to the staff, she owes a bigger apology to folks of color around the country".




Kelly did not host new episodes of Megyn Kelly Today as scheduled on Thursday and Friday mornings.

CNN's Don Lemon joined Chris Cuomo to tear into Kelly and also took the opportunity to call out the NBC executives who dumped Al Roker and Tamron Hall and hired her.

Kelly had signed a $69m contract that saw her take on a short-lived news show Sunday Night with Megyn Kelly where she interviewed figures such as Alex Jones and Russian president Vladimir Putin.

"Some people said that was racist", she said. "But I'm not going to be one of the ones piling on Megyn Kelly at this time". "I think her representatives and management also did her wrong because they put her in a position that was not necessarily suited to her skill set".

Mitchell remains "a huge Britney fan", and she says she's honored to have appeared in her video.

For her part, Hall has stayed quiet and refrained from publicly commenting on this week's controversy. Particularly on race and ethnicity issues which, far from being healed, have been exacerbated in our politics over the past year.

In Theron's new movie, which does not have an official release date yet, the Oscar victor co-stars with John Lithgow, who's playing Kelly's former Fox News boss Roger Ailes, and Nicole Kidman playing Fox News commentator Gretchen Carlson.
