Megyn Kelly's NBC morning show is over. The network announced Friday that other "Today" show anchors will replace them at 9:00 am, putting an end to "Megyn Kelly Today." The cancellation follows months of host missteps, embarrassing moments, and a racially insensitive defense of Blackface Halloween costumes
Kelly, once a star on Fox News, had long developed ambitions to emerge from the conservative news bubble into the top tier of mainstream Retiring personalities in an effort to become a mix of Oprah Winfrey and Charlie Rose] She once said she wanted to "help people," just like Oprah. Her book title indicated she wanted to "settle for more". She debuted her NBC morning show "Megyn Kelly Today", saying she was "ready for politics right now."
But their stony transition to the morning news showed how difficult it is to separate his identity from the Fox News brand.
The end of their show was announced in a tweet by NBC News. People close to it said on Thursday that Kelly's lawyers and NBC band members were planning to meet today to discuss the details of their relationship. NBC tempted Kelly early last year from Fox News with a three-year $ 69 million contract
Kelly's future with NBC remains uncertain. "Megyn remains an employee of NBC News and discussions about the next steps are continuing," her lawyer Bryan Freedman said in a statement.
She is not welcome in her former home, Fox News, which left her too angry.  "We are very pleased with our entire lineup," said Fox News spokesman. Kelly burned bridges at Fox after publicly speaking about sexual harassment, which she said confronted the deceased Roger Ailes, co-founder of the station.
In some places, Fox News insiders enjoyed a certain glee at Kelly's NBC failure. Darla Shine, the wife of White House Deputy Chief of Staff Bill Shine – a former Fox News manager – cheerfully remarked that Kelly tweeted a story (19659010) that Kelly did not show up on the show for the rest of the week, along with the comment: "This happens when you dump the universe with lies @ Megynkelly … you helped to immortalize lies against those who helped you, only the truth will set you free!"
Shine, whose husband was a long time Member of Ailes, Kelly had also beaten when she first said that Ailes had sexually harassed her.
Some NBC employees were skeptical of Kelly News broke out that she would leave Fox for her network. Others were doubtful that they could make the transition from a harsh cable news presenter to a lighter morning show.
It was in the casual banter segment of "Megyn Kelly Today" that she got into trouble this week she asked her very white group of guests, "What's racist?"
"Really, you're in trouble if you're a white person hanging up Blackface for Halloween or a black person whiteface on Halloween," she continued. "When I was a kid, it was okay as long as you disguised yourself as a character."
