Megyn Kelly in NBC limbo after cancellation of morning show”

In early 2017, Hall walked away from a multi-year, multi-million dollar contract when she got word that NBC planned to offer Kelly the show's 9 a.m. slot.

In a statement, the network news division said the show won't return, a decision that follows fallout from Kelly's on-air comments about blackface.

Kelly made her debut as NBC morning TV host on September 25, 2017, taking over the 9 a.m. slot of "Today" and saying she wanted viewers "to have a laugh with us, a smile, sometimes a tear and maybe a little hope to start your day".

Thursday and Friday's episodes of "Megyn Kelly Today" were pre-taped. "Next week, the 9 a.m. hour will be hosted by other "Today" co-anchors", the peacock network said in a statement.

She last appeared on her show on the network on October 24, apologizing at the top of the segment for her comments the previous day about blackface and whiteface.

"But what is racist?" she asked an all-white panel.

She largely floundered with that soft-news focus, and a pair of awkward and hostile interviews with Hollywood figures Jane Fonda and Debra Messing backfired. "Back when I was a kid, that was okay as long as you were dressing up as like a character".

Stelter later talked about how Kelly aggressively covered #MeToo cases on her show and that she challenged NBC management in a public manner.

Kelly earned fame as a longtime anchor for Fox News, notably sparring with Donald Trump during the 2016 presidential election campaign. At the same time, her former association with Fox caused some NBC colleagues and viewers to regard her with suspicion.
