NBC News releases Megyn Kelly from show

Even before the controversy, Kelly had struggled in the ratings, often losing out to her competitors at ABC, a talk show hosted by Kelly Ripa and Ryan Seacrest.

This morning, NBC News host Megyn Kelly is in talks with the network about her imminent departure, according to a source familiar with the situation. Another source who was not authorized to speak publicly was cited in the report as saying Kelly's representatives are scheduled to meet Friday with company executives and it looks "extremely unlikely" that she'll stay.

What is more, it's unclear that Kelly is even going to suffer much of a outcome for her actions. In an earlier statement, NBC said, "Given the circumstances "Megyn Kelly Today' will be on tape the rest of the week".

"The fact is, she owes a bigger apology to folks of color around the county", Roker said while discussing the incident with Melvin and Savannah Guthrie on Today. The two explained that in the US, there is a long history of blackface used to mock and belittle black people. "Regret going on. Dismayed by her comments".

Donahue's chief argument focused on the jokes that the network has made at the expense of Catholic priests and nuns, pointing out many instances where NBC talent, including Al Roker, Jay Leno, Seth Meyers and the short-lived comedy "You, Me and the Apocalypse", mocked the Catholic church. "She said something stupid". Particularly on race and ethnicity issues which, far from being healed, have been exacerbated in our politics over the past year.

The decision to retain a lawyer may signal a lengthy battle over her contract, which is reportedly valued at $23 million a year.
