Megyn Kelly's Five Most Controversial Moments at NBC

Megyn Kelly has been officially dropped by NBC after only one year of her three-year contract.

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".

Kelly did not host new episodes of Megyn Kelly Today as scheduled on Thursday and Friday mornings. 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. Kelly's nighttime news magazine Sunday Night With Megyn Kelly was a misfire as well, with NBC quietly pulling it off the schedule after just eight airings.

Unfortunately for those expecting any kind of inside scoop from the reporters who work with Kelly, the package that aired only served as a confirmation of everything that was previously reported.

Multiple factors explain Kelly's impending exit from NBC. In an earlier statement, NBC said, "Given the circumstances "Megyn Kelly Today' will be on tape the rest of the week". By Wednesday morning, NBC co-hosts Al Roker and Craig Melvin were criticizing Kelly for her remarks, and were adamant that their co-anchor owed an apology to people of color at large.

Kelly's friend Eleanor McManus, a crisis manager who appeared on Kelly's show several times, argued that NBC's treatment of Kelly was retaliatory for her reporting on the #MeToo movement - particularly her attention to allegations against NBC and its stars.

Virat Kohli’s Journey from 1,000 to 10,000 Runs in ODI Cricket
Indian skipper Virat Kohli on Wednesday became the fastest cricketer to touch the 10,000-run mark in the one-day global format. In Guwahati, riding on centuries by Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma, India wrapped up the match with nearly 8 overs to spare.

Interestingly, the network did not say that they were parting with Kelly for good.

Kelly added that it was "OK" for white people to wear blackface on Halloween when she was a young girl.

As Kelly began having trouble booking A-list guests to her show, she began booking victims of sexual harassment and assault - a topic that reminded viewers of her celebrity status back when candidate Donald Trump attacked her over the question she asked him a GOP debate about vile ways in which he had described women over the years. It's unclear whether she will receive a new role within NBC News or leave the network.

"Listen, I have "blackface" 24/7, so it is never an issue for me", she said".

"I learned that given the history of blackface being used in very bad ways by racists in this country, it is not OK for that to be part of any costume, Halloween or otherwise". "She is not ever coming back".
