Megyn Kelly Is Officially Done at NBC, Leaves with a $30 Million Settlement

Megyn Kelly’s exit from NBC has been finalized just two years after she inked a $69 million deal with the network.

“The parties have resolved their differences, and Megyn Kelly is no longer an employee,” NBC said in a statement to the New York Times.

The NYT also reports that Megyn will walk away with a $30 million payout, which is the remainder of her original $69 million contract.

In January 2017, the former Fox News anchor signed on to host the Megyn Kelly Today show, which was canceled back in October following her controversial blackface comments.

“But what is racist? You truly do get in trouble if you are a white person who puts on blackface at Halloween or a black person who puts on whiteface for Halloween,” Kelly told an all-white panel on the morning talk show. “Back when I was a kid, that was OK, as long as you were dressing up as like a character.” 

The backlash was swift, she apologized, but it wasn’t enough.
