NBC Cancels Megyn Kelly's 'Today' Show | HuffPost Canada

Megyn Kelly

On the Tuesday edition of Megyn Kelly Today, a discussion about Halloween turned controversial when Kelly wondered if wearing blackface as part of a costume is actually racist. Next week, the 9 a.m. hour will be hosted by other "Today' co-anchors", a spokesperson told Page Six on Friday.

Even if she never lands another job - she reportedly wants to return to Fox News, but the network seems unwilling to hire her back - that is more money than most people will ever see in their lifetime. "Regret going on. Dismayed by her comments". "They knew exactly what they were getting when they hired Megyn Kelly". "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 worst stereotypes about black people - and that's what the problem is and that's what the issue is".

Time magazine, which honoured "The Silence Breakers" as its Person of the Year, cited Kelly as its leader in the entertainment field. At the same time, her former association with Fox caused some NBC colleagues and viewers to regard her with suspicion.

Both Kelly and Fox News had been open to her returning to the network before this week's blackface scandal.

For those who need a refresher, Hall walked away from a multi-year, multi-million dollar contract in early 2017 after learning NBC planned to offer Kelly the show's 9 AM slot.

Mega Millions & Powerball Hit Combined $2 Billion Jackpot
The No. 1 population state of California is second in Mega Millions winners with six, while IL is third with four winners. And speaking of Powerball: That game's next drawing is Wednesday, for an estimated jackpot of $ 620 million .

The news comes after an NBC spokeswoman said that "given the circumstances", the network was airing repeats of the show on Thursday and Friday.

In a statement of her own, Hall said "the last 10 years have been beyond anything I could have imagined, and I'm grateful". NBC aired reruns of her program on Thursday and Friday. Back in January, Kelly hosted "Fit Mom" Maria King for an interview, a woman who garnered controversy in 2013 for posting a photo of herself online with three kids and the headline, "What's Your Excuse", referring to women's physical appearance.

Although Kelly may have attempted a fresh start at NBC, she couldn't always escape her baggage.

She opened Wednesday's show by saying she was wrong and sorry for what she said.

"The fact is, she owes a bigger apology to folks of color around the county", Roker said while discussing the incident with Melvin and Savannah Guthrie on Today.
