NBC, Megyn Kelly reach sep­a­ra­tion agree­ment

Chattanooga Times Free Press - - NEWS -

NEW YORK — NBC News an­nounced its pro­fes­sional di­vorce agree­ment with Megyn Kelly late Fri­day, end­ing an as­so­ci­a­tion with the for­mer Fox News Chan­nel star whose at­tempt to be­come a net­work morn­ing tele­vi­sion star as part of the “Today” show floun­dered.

Terms were not dis­closed. Kelly was in the second of a three-year con­tract that re­port­edly paid her more than $20 mil­lion a year.

She’s been off the air since Oc­to­ber after cre­at­ing a furor by sug­gest­ing that it was OK for white peo­ple to wear black­face on Hal­loween, and exit ne­go­ti­a­tions had dragged for two months over the hol­i­days.
