Megyn Kelly’s morning show is reportedly over because of her blackface comment. More

Kelly's exit is foregone after the network's "Today" show aired a segment Friday morning discussing how "Kelly is in talks with the network about her imminent departure".

"But what is racist?" she wondered aloud.

The ratings weren't great, either: Megyn Kelly Today was regularly topped by rival Live! The fourth hour of NBC's venerable Today franchise that Kelly's show occupied will be hosted by other co-anchors from the show beginning next week, the network said. "Back when I was a kid, that was okay as long as you were dressing up as like a character". Kelly interviewed the "InfoWars" founder and popular conspiratorial talk radio host in an interview in which she tried to grill him on some of his more controversial claims.

Kelly's future with NBC remains uncertain. The former Fox News anchor took over the cherished post-Today time slot from Tamron Hall and Al Roker's third hour of Today in September of that year. People close to the matter said Thursday that Kelly's lawyers and NBC brass planned to meet Friday to hash out the details of their relationship.

In other words, NBC was no longer just backstabbing her off-camera, they were conspiring her demise on-camera. NBC lured Kelly from Fox News early last year with a three-year, $69 million contract.

Kohli (204 innings) would also surpass the iconic Sachin Tendulkar who took 259 innings to get there. He put on 139 runs for third wicket with Ambati Rayudu, who made 73.

"Megyn Kelly Today is not returning", an NBC News spokesperson said.

Kelly apologized to NBC colleagues in an email Tuesday.

That will be sad news for a few of her former co-workers, with Geraldo Rivera having shown his support earlier in the day by tweeting: 'Since she's made an apparently heartfelt apology for grossly misguided remarks, how about showing some mercy to an otherwise good person? Veteran Tom Brokaw was protected from the accusation by multiple women of sexual misconduct. But it was Megyn Kelly's questions about blackface on Halloween that were apparently a bridge too far? "I felt like, who doesn't love Diana Ross?".

Megyn Kelly speaks onstage at the Fortune Most Powerful Women Summit 2018 at Ritz Carlton Hotel on October 2, 2018 in Laguna Niguel, Calif. "In fact, many of them like it".

Then on February 1, 2017, NBC made the abrupt announcement: Hall left the network the day before, on the day her contract was up. And whatever her next destination is, let's hope she'll go back to her roots and do what she does best; sharp, sometimes biting, political analysis.
