Megyn Kelly’s exit from the 9 a.m. hour of the “Today” show appears to be imminent, according to sources. “Given the circumstances, Megyn Kelly Today will be on tape the rest of the week,” an NBC News spokeswoman said Thursday morning.
Another source said that Kelly’s show will be ending, but negotiations about the end date and other details are still underway. Kelly apologized on her show Wednesday for comments made the previous day about not understanding why dressing in blackface for Halloween is offensive. Many of the NBC staff, including NBC Chairman Andy Lack, have condemned Kelly’s comments.
“I want to begin with two words, I’m sorry..The country feels so divided and I have no wish to add to that pain and offense. I believe this is a time for more understanding, more love, more sensitivity and honor..Thank you for listening and for helping me listen too.” Megyn Kelly pic.twitter.com/6hHrvZLNvK
