Megyn Kelly Finalizes Exit from Today Show, to Receive ‘Roughly $30 Million’: Sources

Nearly three months after the peacock network announced that Megyn Kelly Today would not be returning to airwaves, the television anchor — she left Fox for NBC in January 2017 and signed a three-year, $23 million-a-year contract — has finalized her exit. An NBC spokesperson said in a statement obtained by PEOPLE on Friday, “The parties have resolved their differences, and Megyn Kelly is no longer an employee of NBC.” “Megyn Kelly Today is not returning,” an NBC spokesperson told PEOPLE as Today anchors Melvin, Hoda Kotb and Roker replaced Kelly in her former time slot. Following NBC’s announcement about the show, Kelly’s attorney told Variety in a statement: “Megyn remains an employee of NBC News and discussions about next steps are continuing.” “I learned that given the history of blackface being used in awful ways by racists in this country it is not okay for that to be part of any costume, Halloween or otherwise.”
