Her Wednesday episode largely centered on her on-air apology for the controversy. She apologized for her comments on the following day's broadcast, but was absent from the show today, October 25. She basically said she didn't think it was racist and feels that anyone should be able to wear blackface as long as it was a character. She would also have a Sunday show called "Sunday Night with Megyn Kelly".
She opened Wednesday's show by saying she was wrong and sorry for what she said.
The wheels are in motion to end Megyn Kelly's time on the Today show.
She was also unhappy that accounts of Lack criticizing her for the blackface comments at an NBC internal town hall meeting became public, and fired her agent out of concern that his company's representation of NBC News President Noah Oppenheim would be a conflict of interest, said the person close to Kelly. After a showcase first interview with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Moscow in which he claimed that Jews, Ukrainians and Tatars (groups oppressed by the Soviet Union and Russia) may have meddled in the 2016 USA election instead of his government, she came under fire for a proposed interview with "InfoWars" host Alex Jones. Megyn's deal is 3 years firm, and she has around 1 year and 10 months to go.
What I will say is that it's amusing that NBC/ABC and all these networks want to hire people who have played themselves publicly in the media before, especially around racial issues, yet when they do it again, we must all suddenly act shocked and appalled.
After all, Kelly is said to have an annual salary of $17 million or more, and if NBCU has to pay any of that out, it could seek to gain some return on its investment, the attorney said. Furthermore, NBC has long had a policy against having sponsored integration in a news-focused program like The Today Show.
Chances are lawyers for both sides won't have much to discuss. There was plenty of hype around "Megyn Kelly Today" when it debuted in September 2017.
Political analysts have noted Kelly's career has been on a steady decline since she attacked then-candidate Donald Trump during the 2016 election. Let's not forget the moment she wanted to clarify, for the kids watching at home, that Santa and Jesus were definitely white. "There's nothing I can do about that".
At Fox News, Megyn's no-nonsense, just-the-facts, ruthless demeanor was an asset. Kelly will eexit her job as the host of "Megyn Kelly Today" show on Thursday following incredible backlash against comments she made about blackface.
