NBC unveils plan to replace Megyn Kelly
Megyn Kelly will remain at NBC for now, but will exit her morning show.
“‘Megyn Kelly Today’ is not returning. Next week, the 9 a.m. hour will be hosted by other ‘Today’ co-anchors,” a spokesperson told Page Six on Friday.
The disgraced anchor’s lawyer Bryan Freeman added, “Megyn remains an employee of NBC News and discussions about next steps are continuing.”
Freeman held talks with NBC execs on Friday. Page Six reported that he’d requested Ronan Farrow be present at a Friday meeting, but a source told us Farrow had no idea about it.
Other sources said that the Friday talks wound up being over-the-phone.
Kelly is the middle of a 3-year contract at NBC at $23 million per year.
An insider told us Kelly’s staff of nearly 200 will continue working at the 9 a.m. hour.
