Megyn Kelly Leaves NBC With $30 Million Payout

•, Tyler Durden

According to a report by NBC News, Kelly has reached an agreement with the network on the terms of her departure whereby she will receiving another $30 million in compensation - the balance of her $69 million three-year contract.

Though Kelly delivered a tearful on-air apology the following day, she never returned to the anchor's chair on the network's flagship daytime program, and her impending departure from the network was swiftly confirmed, along with speculation that, thanks to the iron-clad nature of her contract, she would likely walk away with a hefty sum.

Prior to the blackface controversy (which would have hardly registered as a controversy if she had said something similar during her time at Fox, where her infamous "Santa is white" comments elicited ridicule from the mainstream press, but barely registered among the cable news channel's more conservative audience), Kelly had been struggling with low ratings and several other awkward gaffes, including pressing actress Jane Fonda about her history of plastic surgery, and an interview with InfoWars founder Alex Jones that was criticized for offering a platform to a conspiracy theorist.
