NBC officially cancels ‘Megyn Kelly Today.’ This is who will replace her.

Kelly has been in the spotlight this week following her controversial blackface remarks that resulted in her being pulled off the air amid widespread backlash.

The news comes after an NBC spokeswoman said that "given the circumstances", the network was airing repeats of the show on Thursday and Friday.

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. According to a "Today" show report on Friday, NBC executives and Kelly's representatives were in negotiations about her departure and her remaining three-year $69 million contract.

Fox News learned that Kelly's legal team was insisting on having Farrow accompany her to settlement talks.

"'Megyn Kelly Today' is not returning", a spokesperson for the network said. "Well, I am wrong and I am sorry", she said.

Kelly also stated to a panel of white people, "What is racist?"

I just want to say thank you to Jurgen Klopp
The Merseyside giants cruised to a comfortable 4-0 win over Red Star Belgrade in their Champions League Group C clash at Anfield on Wednesday.

Kelly has parted ways with her talent agency, CAA, according to the sources, and she has hired attorney Bryan Freedman. She said it was acceptable when she was a kid when portraying a character.

"Because you do get in trouble if you are a white person who puts on blackface on Halloween, or a black person who puts on whiteface for Halloween".

She offered a fuller apology to the nation at large, in which she said, through tears, that she did not mean to hurt anyone, let alone further divisions in the country.

"This is a history going back to the 1830s", Roker continued. On Tuesday, she defended Real Housewives of NY star Luann de Lesseps' Diana Ross Halloween costume, saying, "Who doesn't love Diana Ross?". What has been really overlooked in all of this is how she invited commentators Roland Martin and Amy Holmes onto her show to discuss the history and negative impact of blackface. She's a good person, a wonderful mom, wife, sister, friend and human being. "This past year has been so painful for many people of color". Back then, she took over the "Today" time slot held by Al Roker and Tamron Hall, leading to Hall's sudden exit from NBC.

Kelly issued her first apology to her NBC colleagues on Tuesday night in an email in which she explained that the incident was a teachable moment.
