Over the last several weeks, Megyn Kelly has been meeting with NBC executives to discuss ending her morning show, Megyn Kelly Today, after this season, a person with knowledge of the matter told The Hollywood Reporter on Wednesday.
She wants to focus more on hard news and politics, the person said, and ending her show has nothing to do with the comments she made on Tuesday about blackface. On Wednesday, NBC News Chairman Andy Lack told employees he condemned Kelly's remarks, calling them "very unfortunate."
Kelly left Fox News for NBC in early 2017, and reportedly earns nearly $20 million a year. Her show airs during the 9 a.m. hour of the Today show, and it's unclear what NBC would put in place of the program, The Hollywood Reporter says.
