Megyn Kelly Finalizes Multi-Million Dollar Contract Settlement With NBC

NEW YORK NY- NBC News chairman Andy Lack and Megyn Kelly attend The 2017 Mirror Awards in New York City

Roker, Craig Melvin, Dylan Dreyer and Sheinelle Jones will now officially fill the third hour of the "Today" show created when Kelly's program was axed, an NBC source told People magazine. Reports suggest Kelly will get a payout of up to $30 million from the network, on the condition that she honors a nondisparagement clause which limits what she can say about her time at NBC and her interactions with NBC executives.

She brought up blackface during a segment the week before Halloween while holding a round-table discussion with an all-white panel about offensive costumes. Megyn Kelly Today launched in September 2017, so she didn't even make it halfway through her three-year commitment before the network decided it was wiser to just fork over $69 million and show her the door immediately.

Kelly apologized for the comment in a letter to NBC staff, and later made an on-air apology. Many predicted when the former Fox News pundit was brought in that Kelly's tenure at NBC would end in disgrace.

Firefighters rush to Paris bakery blaze
Police have quickly ruled out any terror link or link to the ongoing yellow vest protests planned for the city later on Saturday. Police reported that big explosion and fire have ripped through Paris bakery on Saturday morning.


Her announcement came after NBC terminated her three-year, $69 million contract - but vowed to pay the full value left on her paycheck. She also briefly hosted an evening newsmagazine that didn't catch on with viewers.

"The parties have resolved their differences, and Megyn Kelly is no longer an employee of NBC", the network confirmed on Friday night. "Because you do get in trouble if you are a white person who puts on blackface on Halloween, or a black person who puts on whiteface for Halloween". At one point, she asked what costumes could be considered racist. Kelly said it was OK when she was "a kid" (she was born in 1970) to don blackface - "so long as you were dressing up as a character".

The 9 a.m. hour, hosted by Kelly, shot up 10 percent in viewers the month after her exit, according to Nielsen numbers. Ratings were lackluster on "Sunday Night With Megyn Kelly" and for her morning talk show, "Megyn Kelly Today".
