NBC canceled “Megyn Kelly Today” in the aftermath of the host’s controversial defense of wearing blackface on Halloween, according to a report.
Megyn Kelly has not been fired by the network, sources told People.
“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,” an insider told the magazine. “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.”
The official Twitter and Facebook accounts for Kelly’s show, which typically share multiple posts daily, have not shared a new post since Wednesday morning.
Kelly, who joined the network last year following her tenure with Fox News, issued a pair of apologies after her blackface comments on Tuesday’s episode of “Megyn Kelly Today” drew criticism, first in an email to her colleagues, then on-air during Wednesday’s episode
