Megyn Kelly parts ways with NBC, receives rest of contract

Megyn Kelly Finalizes Multi-Million Dollar Contract Settlement With NBC

On Friday night, NBC News confirmed toThe New York Times that both sides reached an agreement, nearly three months after the network fired Kelly for wondering why it was inappropriate for people to wear blackface costumes on Halloween.

In this October 18, 2018 photo released by NBC, host Megyn Kelly appears on her show "Megyn Kelly Today", in NY.

The morning show host - who was removed from the network last year after making controversial comments on air - will be paid the remainder of her reported $69 million contract in the deal, the remaining value of her three-year contract.

"The parties have resolved their differences, and Megyn Kelly is no longer an employee of NBC", according to an NBC News statement.

Honoree Megyn Kelly speaks onstage during The Hollywood Reporter's Annual Women in Entertainment Breakfast in Los Angeles at Milk Studios on December 7, 2016 in Hollywood, California. But she didn't appear on the network again, and three days after her blackface remarks first aired, NBC announced that it had canceled the show. Kelly asked her guests.

Kelly's tenure at NBC News was rocky from the start, beginning with a short-lived Sunday night newsmagazine program that was rolled out with a widely panned interview with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Saudi Arabia , the world's top oil exporter, is the third biggest crude producer after the United States and Russian Federation . Gas reserves totalled 325.1 trillion cubic feet (Tcf), an increase of 17.2 Tcf over the previous estimate.

Kelly's last appearance on Today was on October 24, when she apologized for her remarks that occurred during a panel discussion about Halloween the day before.

NBC has yet to make an official announcement on who will replace Kelly on Today's third hour, but meteorologist Dylan Dreyer teased the decision on Twitter earlier this month. Kelly joined the cable network after serving as a corporate attorney.

Kelly apologized for the comment in a letter to NBC staff, and later made an on-air apology.

If Kelly truly knows "too much that others don't" regarding Lauer's sexual misconduct, it could explain why her exit negotiations took so long.

She will be subject to an industry-standard nondisparagement clause, which prevents what she can say about working at NBC.
