Megyn Kelly Confirms Comeback to TV After NBC Exit for Defending Blackface

A spokesperson for NBC told multiple outlets, "The parties have resolved their differences, and Megyn Kelly is no longer an employee of NBC".

Lack's gambit was a pricey one: Kelly's three-year deal was worth a total of $69 million.

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.

When approached by celebrity photographers earlier this week, Kelly said that "you will definitely see me back on [television]", CNN reported.

Nearly three months and $69 million later, the disgraced TV host who got suspended for her thoughtless on-air remarks about blackface in late 2018, is no longer an employee of NBC.

Megyn Kelly Today kicked off in mid-2017, though the show seemed to be doomed from the start.

Kelly's last appearance on Today was on October 24, when she apologized for her remarks that occurred during a panel discussion about Halloween the day before.

Since her departure from the third hour of Today, her show has been replaced by rotating anchors Dylan Dreyer, Sheinelle Jones, Craig Melvin, Al Roker and others. Since the announcement, her status had been in limbo as lawyers worked out the details of the breakup. Kelly joined the cable network after serving as a corporate attorney. He accused the network of allowing "completely false and irresponsible" rumors to circulate, while NBC mocked Freedman for negotiating through the media.

The former Fox News host's NBC show, "Megyn Kelly Today", was canceled in October after her controversial remarks about blackface during Halloween.

Kelly apologized for the comment in a letter to NBC staff, and later made an on-air apology. "I want to look at everything", she said.
