Megyn Kelly Today won’t return after anchor’s blackface comments

'Straight Bull': Fox News' Tomi Lahren Is Furious Megyn Kelly Actually Faces Consequences for Racism

Yet both NBC's Nightly News and the Today show did stories on their colleague's comment.

NBC has officially canceled Megyn Kelly's show "Megyn Kelly Today" the Associated Press confirmed Friday. It was questionable to hire Kelly in the first place, as she had a history of racist rants that predated her move from Fox News to NBC.

Unfortunately for those expecting any kind of inside scoop from the reporters who work with Kelly, the package that aired only served as a confirmation of everything that was previously reported.

Even before the controversy, Kelly had struggled in the ratings, often losing out to her competitors at ABC, a talk show hosted by Kelly Ripa and Ryan Seacrest.

And Kelly has been openly challenging the news division's management, including NBC News chair Andy Lack, for months.

The network on Friday again aired a repeat of "Megyn Kelly Today" just as it did Thursday following this week's controversy. Friday episodes of her show are usually pre-taped.

But Kelly's rise at Fox exhibited many warning signs of her views on race, which her colleagues at NBC have called problematic.

But let's be clear: NBC wanted to rid themselves of Kelly for the longest time and they seized on this gaffe as an opportune moment to do so. Kelly is also allegedly enlisting journalist Ronan Farrow to join her in the meeting.

The report added that Kelly is set to fight for the rest of her contract - about $69 million - and is in talks to return to her old stomping grounds at Fox News. She said it was acceptable when she was a kid when portraying a character.

The high-paid host's rocky tenure at NBC is coming to an end after she made remarks about blackface on Tuesday during a segment about controversial Halloween costumes.

As Kelly began having trouble booking A-list guests to her show, she began booking victims of sexual harassment and assault - a topic that reminded viewers of her celebrity status back when candidate Donald Trump attacked her over the question she asked him a GOP debate about vile ways in which he had described women over the years. And whatever her next destination is, let's hope she'll go back to her roots and do what she does best; sharp, sometimes biting, political analysis.

"Sources familiar with the situation tell NBC News that conversations have already started about Megyn's exit", said correspondent Morgan Radford.
