NBC News, Megyn Kelly reach separation agreement

NBC News, Megyn Kelly reach separation agreement

She is expected to receive the remaining money left on her contract, which is reportedly in the neighborhood of $30 million.

"The parties have resolved their differences, and Megyn Kelly is no longer an employee of NBC", the statement read.

Kelly joined NBC in 2017, agreeing to a three-year, $69 million deal to host a Sunday night news program and a daily morning show as part of the "TODAY" family. And "Megyn Kelly Today" was defined by disappointing ratings and awkward moments, with the host sometimes seeming ill-suited for the bubbly world of morning television.

In this October 18, 2018 photo released by NBC, host Megyn Kelly appears on her show "Megyn Kelly Today", in NY. "I want to look at everything", she said.

This contributed to tensions between Kelly and NBC executives, including NBC News chair Andy Lack, who invested tens of millions of dollars in her hiring.

In this September 21, 2017 file photo, Megyn Kelly poses on the set of her new show, "Megyn Kelly Today" at NBC Studios in NY. NBC would not comment Friday on whether the separation agreement allows her to write about her experiences at the network. "Like back when I was a kid it was okay if you were dressing up as a character". Kelly, 48, asked Jacob Soboroff, Melissa Rivers, and Jenna Bush Hager during a discussion about censoring Halloween costumes.

She then defended a white reality star who dressed as singer Diana Ross, saying, "I felt like, who doesn't love Diana Ross?"

Kelly gave a tearful apology on the show the next day.

Last week, NBC announced that Al Roker would be taking over Kelly's slot on the 9 a.m. hour of Today.

It's not immediately clear what's next for Kelly. Kelly apologized to her staff that afternoon.

Kelly, one of the moderating journalists, grilled Trump on his disparaging comments about women, noting he had called them "dogs", "fat pigs", "slobs" and "disgusting animals".

It is unclear given these terms why the negotiations took so long to finalize, especially since the terms of Kelly's nondisclosure did not change.
