Megyn Kelly is in discussions about potentially leaving NBC News

However, several of Kelly's NBC colleagues, including Today show hosts Craig Melvin and Al Roker, denounced her comments on Wednesday.

NBC announced in a tweet Friday that the Megyn Kelly Today show, which airs at 9 a.m., will be covered by other hosts.

United States television journalist Megyn Kelly was a former attorney and Fox News anchor.

More recently, Kelly seemed to be setting up a storyline that she might be on the outs at NBC News because of her coverage of the #MeToo movement, telling Us magazine, sphinx-like, "I know too much that others don't know" about Matt Lauer's continued employment and then sudden ouster from NBC News, when asked whether Lauer might make a comeback.

DailyMail.com reported earlier this week that Kelly's former reps at CAA had been calling networks in hopes of finding a possible home for Kelly.

Kyle Kuzma scored 22 points and JaVale McGee added 21 to complement James' 74th career triple-double, his first with his new team. Kuzma added two huge dunks down the stretch of Los Angeles' second win in two days after an 0-3 start.

And Kelly has been openly challenging the news division's management, including NBC News chair Andy Lack, for months.

"'Megyn Kelly Today' is not returning", a spokesperson for the network said.

However, Kelly was the one who looked bad after Jones released uncut recordings of his comments with Kelly - which exposed not only her lack of honesty toward Jones, but also deceptive editing tactics by her and her team.

Kelly did not appear on television Thursday or Friday, as the network opted to run reruns in her absence.

"Megyn Kelly Today is not returning", according to the NBC statement. Kelly wrote in part in the email, which was obtained by ABC News.

After all, it's what made Megyn Kelly a star and what brought her down in the mornings at NBC.

Earlier his week Kelly surprised NBC News with her spirited on-air defense of blackface Halloween costumes.

Just three days ago, during a segment about Halloween costumes, Kelly questioned if blackface - makeup traditionally used by non-black performers to mock African Americans - was always problematic. One of Kelly's first interviews on her NBC show was with the cast of the TV show "Will & Grace".

"Sources familiar with the situation tell NBC News that conversations have already started about Megyn's exit", said correspondent Morgan Radford. Curry broke down in tears as she said goodbye on air: "For all of you who saw me as a groundbreaker: I'm sorry I couldn't carry the ball over the finish line, but man, I did try!" "She is not ever coming back".

She had an edge from the beginning of the offending segment, where she discussed Halloween costumes with a panel that included Jenna Bush Hager, Melissa Rivers and Jacob Soboroff.
