Kelly absent from show following blackface comments

39;TODAY' Anchors Sound Off on Coworker Megyn Kelly's 'Blackface' Comments During Morning Broadcast

The NBC morning show host, according to The Hollywood Reporter, is expected to wind down her 9 a.m. Today Show hour by the end of the season. Kelly was off the air Thursday, and a pre-taped episode of Megyn Kelly Today was aired instead.

Megyn Kelly is out as a host of NBC's Today show.

"Back when I was a kid, that was OK just as long as you were dressing as a character", Kelly said.

On her show the next day (yesterday) Megyn issued an apology and then welcomed two black panelists to discuss the horrific and absolutely offensive history of wearing blackface. She also defended Real Housewives of New Yorkcast member Luann de Lesseps, who had previously darkened her skin for a Diana Ross costume.

The journalist, who got her start as an attorney, said that when she was "a little girl", born in IL and then raised in upstate NY, "I hated the non-traditional spelling because I wanted the monogrammed mugs, plaques, and other things with the name on them - always spelled 'Megan.' Now I like the unusual spelling, and some of our viewers tell me they've actually adopted it for their own little 'Megyns'".

NBC has canceled Megyn Kelly's 9 a.m.

"We have a lot of games but of course he's not new - not like Riyad - [we've spent] three years together so when I say something he knows what we have to do".

"Megyn Kelly is done". She has since apologized for her remarks, but they have already lost her some guests.

She briefly floundered with that soft-news focus before finding more of a objective with the eruption of the #MeToo movement. In the past 24 hours, she was also dropped by her talent agency, CAA. Kelly had been scheduled to take part in NBC News' coverage of the 2018 midterm elections.

Spokespeople for NBC News declined to comment, and most staffers at the news division remain in the dark about what's happening with the show.

But of course, Megyn Kelly wouldn't care about that, because she has a long history of saying really bad race-related things, saying sexist things when it was convenient to do so (i.e. when it wasn't about her or her experiences), and the occasional dash of homophobia. NBC have not made any official statement about the future of the show. Al Roker said "she owes a big apology to people of color across the country". "Everyone's being told that they still have a home here, but it won't be on Megyn's show". A few days later though they talked things through and in September 2017 he popped the question and she accepted.

And while there is speculation Kelly may return to Fox News - where she hosted any number of programs from 2010-2016 - many conservative viewers may not welcome her back, especially after her failed mea culpa.
