She will get the remainder of her $69 million contract.
Kelly, 47, and her litigator Bryan Freedman reportedly requested Ronan Farrow “so he can be a witness” when she meets with NBC execs on Friday, a source told Page Six.
The network aired a repeat of Kelly’s show on Thursday and will air another repeat on Friday.
The controversy ensued during a segment on Halloween costumes on “Megyn Kelly Today” on Tuesday. Kelly asked if blackface was acceptable if a child wore a costume portraying a Black character.
“Back when I was a kid, that was okay just as long as you were dressing as a [Halloween] character,” Kelly said on Tuesday’s show.
Kelly also expressed sympathy for a character in “Real Housewives of New York” who wore blackface makeup as part of a Diana Ross costume.
The former Fox News anchor tearfully apologized on the air on Wednesday. “I want to begin with two words: ‘I’m sorry,'” she said.
Hall, 48, discussed her sister Renate’s unsolved murder, saying she was not ready to film a show about Renate’s death, according to Page Six.
Hall, who hosts Deadline: Crime With Tamron Hall on the ID Channel, departed MSNBC and NBC in February 2017 after Kelly signed a $69 million contract with the network that same month.
