Megyn Kelly Will Not Return To Show, NBC Canceling 'Megyn Kelly Today'

October 26, 2018 - 1:28 pm

NEW YORK (WCBS 880/AP) -- After Megyn Kelly remained absent from her NBC morning show, the network confirmed Friday her epoymous show is being cancelled.

NBC tweeted that "Megyn Kelly Today" and the 9 a.m. hour will be hosted by other Today show co-anchors..

The network had been airing repeats of "Megyn Kelly Today'' just as it did Thursday following this week's controversy over her comments about blackface.

During a segment on Halloween costumes on Tuesday, Kelly said dressing in blackface was acceptable when she was a kid if portraying a character, and expressed sympathy for a character in "Real Wives of New York" who darkened her face for a Diana Ross costume.
