Multiple reports claim that the 47-year-old Kelly will not return to her job at NBC and is now negotiating her exit from the network alongside her attorneys. NBC News Chairman Andy Lack slammed Kelly's on-air comments during a town hall event that he held for news division staff.

It's a new beginning for the the third hour of the Today show. "Next week, the 9 am hour will be hosted by other Today co-anchors".

Time magazine, which honored "The Silence Breakers" as its Person of the Year, cited Kelly as the group's leader in the entertainment field. The firing was prompted by her panel discussion on Tuesday in which she defended wearing blackface for Halloween.

"What is racist?" Kelly pondered.

Numerous people responded to Kelly's post, some echoing her condolences for the shooting victims. "Thank you for listening and for helping me listen, too".

Her take on the topic did not sit well with fellow employees on her show, who interpreted it as offensive and discriminatory toward African Americans.

But she had a bumpy road once she reached NBC.

On Today, Craig Melvin called her tone-deaf comments "racist and ignorant".

"'Megyn Kelly Today' is not returning", NBC News said in a statement.

President Donald Trump preliminarily scheduled to take place in Paris on November 11. He also voiced concern that terrorists have been armed with such modern weapons.

A wider and more emotional apology was expressed by the embattled news personality, who is now looking for another job.

"The fact is while she apologized to the staff, she owes a bigger apology to folks of color around the country".

DailyMail.com visited the NBC Experience Store at 30 Rockefeller Center on Monday and found that the entire space had been cleared of Megyn Kelly merchandise. "There is no place on our air or in this workplace for them".

Kelly's attorney, Bryan Freedman, corroborated talk about her possible return to NBC.

Social media was quick to correct her ignorance and even NBC anchors slammed the former Fox News host. In January of 2017, the network hired the journalist and pulled her away from Fox News with a three-year, $69 million contract. "According to a report by DailyMailTV, NBC executives not involved in the hiring of the former Fox News host have said that her salary is "obscene" and a "slap in the face" to other NBC veteran stars". In its first year, Kelly's show averaged 2.4 million viewers a day, a drop of 400,000 from the year before.

This was a completely different result compared to Matt Lauer's exit.

While the network has yet to announce an official replacement for Megyn Kelly, Monday's show featured Hoda Kotb and Al Roker as well as a promise of a "new chapter" on the show.
