Megyn Kelly exits NBC after controversial tenure

LAGUNA NIGUEL CA- OCTOBER 02 Megyn Kelly speaks onstage at the Fortune Most Powerful Women Summit 2018 at Ritz Carlton Hotel

She delivered a tearful mea culpa to fans the next day, but three days later, NBC announced that Megyn Kelly Today had been canceled.

Megyn Kelly vowed to return to television just hours before NBC finally reached an exit agreement with the former Megyn Kelly Today host.

In an interview on the street in NY with TMZ this week, Kelly said she'll "definitely" be back on television in 2019.

Kelly will be walking away with her full $69 million contract, meaning she will be collecting a lump sum between $25 and $30 million, according to a source with knowledge of the situation.

In a statement released by NBC on Saturday, the network said that it had resolved its differences with Kelly and that she was no longer an employee.

"You'll definitely see me back on", she replied, adding that her first priority is to get a new dog.

In a sense, Kelly was caught in a no-woman's land: some at NBC were suspicious of her because of the Fox News background, while her former audience at Fox resented her for tough questioning of Donald Trump on the presidential campaign trail. Her regret over the comment, however, was apparently not enough to sway NBC executives. At one point, she asked what costumes could be considered racist.

Kelly's Sunday night newsmagazine program, "Sunday Night with Megyn Kelly", was widely panned and discontinued after a short run in the summer of 2017.

Her comments that drew outrage on social media and condemnations from Kelly's colleagues at NBC, including Craig Melvin and Al Roker, and was covered by Lester Holt on NBC Nightly News.

It's not immediately clear what's next for Kelly.

Kelly has not been on air since her comments on blackface in October.

Talks about the terms of her exit soon turned contentious, with Kelly's attorney Bryan Freedman accusing Lack of leaking details about the negotiations.
