NBC Finally Splits With Megyn Kelly

After months of intense negotiations over her departure, centering around her reported $69-million contract.


Megyn Kelly is finally out at NBC.

After months of intense negotiations, the former host of Megyn Kelly Today and NBC finalized an exit deal resolving the remainder of her three-year contract, which was reportedly worth $69 million.

“The parties have resolved their differences, and Megyn Kelly is no longer an employee of NBC,” the network said in a statement Friday evening.

Kelly will be paid the full $25-30 million remaining on her contract, a source with knowledge of the negotiation told the Daily Beast.

2. On the bright side, the 69 million dollar price tag might be enough to prevent the networks from

trying to stuff any more right wing morons down our throats in the future.

Though I hate to see her profiting so handsomely from her racist nonsense.

3. Damn! That's Bill O'Reilly sexual assault type money

She worked at Fox News as a leg show between BillO and Hannity - that's why she had a see through desk. Stay in your lane. Know your role Jabroni.

23. My guess if she returns, she'll be uber-FOX.

The audience will welcome her with opened arms.

6. More accurately bought her off. Why not give her a graveyard shift newsreader slot?

Say fifteen minutes at 2:15 AM six days a week.

7. I don't get it.

If your going to pay her anyway, just put her on ice.
Give her a desk job for the duration.
If she doesn't like it and wants to leave she can terminate the contract and sign with someone else.

13. I would imagine that her agent thought of this

and that there is a clause forbidding that.

11. Maybe she'll replace Huckleberry Sanders

who last month was reported to be leaving but seems to still be hanging on like the stench from an outhouse.

9. Heard that story reluctantly reported on my local (CBS-affiliate) news radio last night

Talk about a flame- out. They need to send Hugh Hewitt packing too!

14. Yuppers. That's around the time I heard it!

https://kywnewsradio.radio.com/articles/news/megyn-kelly-leaves-nbc-all-her-69-million-contract-intact

Their website ended up referencing the CNN reporting of it but I don't remember whether they played an audio feed from CNN with the report or from CBS News.

12. That is a lot of money!

I keep thinking of our out of work federal workers skipping meals, sleeping in their cars, selling their belongings and that awful Kelly just gets to walk away from a cushy job with such an obscene amount of money.

15. How did they think

she would have the viewership to deserve that kind of money in the first place?

Did they not see what she was on Faux?

She left because of sexual harassment, not because she didn't believe the Faux propaganda.

18. Well, the best part is that we

don't have to look at her or hear her bs ever again. Personally, I wouldn't ever work again if I got $69M pretax. I could find a lot of things to occupy my life.

20. "After months of intense negotiations... Kelly will be paid the full $25-30 million remaining..."

I shudder to think what terms were in her contract if NBC had to negotiate for months just to reduce it to paying her in full.
Tamron Hall must be laughing her ass off.

21. You know you suck when a network pays you 30M to GTFO

I really hope this leads to serious self reflection and awareness for Kelly.
