Megyn Kelly Today Will (Officially) Not See Tomorrow

Megyn Kelly, the racist former Fox anchor who went ahead and said something racist on NBC, has officially lost her morning show over her comments condoning blackface.

Megyn Kelly Today is not returning,” an NBC spokesperson told People Magazine. “Next week, the 9 a.m. hour will be hosted by other Today co-anchors.”


“They’re contacting the staff and reassigning everyone today. Everyone’s being told that they still have a home here, but it won’t be on Megyn’s show,” one source told People. “They haven’t made an official announcement about the show, but everyone knows what it means when they’re being moved somewhere else. The show is clearly over.”

It’s unclear what this means for Kelly’s future at NBC, whose show has been a failure since its launch last year. According to one source within the network, things don’t look great. “Conversations have already started about Megyn’s exit from the network,” one source told NBC News on Thursday.

Even if she’s booted from NBC, I’m sure that in a few months, another major network will pick her up, insisting that she can offer a “unique perspective” on politics and culture in the age of Trump.
