Megyn Kelly Off Air Amid Controversy

NBC slams Megyn Kelly over blackface comments Megyn Kelly MIA From NBC Morning Show Today And Tomorrow As Longterm Return Unlikely

31 episode of "Megyn Kelly Today" in lieu of her regularly scheduled live show Thursday and said she will not be on the air Friday.

Political analysts have noted Kelly's career has been on a steady decline since she attacked then-candidate Donald Trump during the 2016 election. Sources tell Page Six that Kelly has been fired, and DailyMail reports that the network will likely pay her a massive sum of $69 million, the remainder of her multi-year contract. He is a Philadelphia-area native and the former CEO of Authentium, Inc. But she almost ended things after he nearly got one of her dogs killed. "It's not like she's walking around in general". Or will they try to find something else with the NBC family of channels (Bravo, for example) where they can ride out her contract and get something for their money?

It's unimaginable. Where would they put her?

In October 2017, after the Harvey Weinstein sexual harassment stories broke, Kelly's show became the site of discussions of sexual misconduct in the workplace.

Before Brunt won her over, Kelly was married to Dr. Dan Kendall from 2001 to 2006. "Well, I was wrong and I am sorry". "She is not ever coming back", an NBC executive told The Daily Mail.

"This was Andy taking revenge on Megyn", the source said. "When she made that comment about it not being in her current marriage it irritated me a bit because it seemed like she was suggesting it was me".

"I want to begin with two words: 'I'm sorry, '" she said at the start of her show. "Jesus was a white man, too", she said.

After declaring earlier this week on her morning talk show that she doesn't understand why blackface is offensive, Megyn Kelly is having trouble booking guests - to no one's surprise. She did so in an email to her colleagues and on-air. And she failed to make that clear on air.

Kelly made a tearful apology on her show the following day, but that didn't stop the backlash that followed.

"They are trying to use this as a platform to restore their credibility", the staffer said.

#3: Megyn's ratings proved to be so bad that her show dragged down the entire NBC afternoon lineup.

Following a row over defending wearing blackface, Kelly has been removed from her namesake talkshow for at least the remainder of the week, with NBC saying in a statement that "given the circumstances" they will air repeats in her time slot.
