NBC, Kelly reach exit deal: $30M
NBC and Megyn Kelly reached a final agreement Friday, nearly three months after the former cable-news star wondered aloud on “Megyn Kelly Today” why it was inappropriate for white people to dress up in blackface for Halloween.
NBC and a representative for Kelly declined to reveal the details of the exit package. According to two people familiar with the negotiations, Kelly was paid the outstanding balance on her contract, a figure that amounts to roughly $30 million. At the time of the separation, Kelly was in the middle of a three-year, $69 million contract.
