Megyn Kelly is on her way out at NBC but will apparently never need to work again if she doesn’t want to. She is reportedly being given a cool $30 million dollars to just go away.
The New York Post’s Page Six reports:
Megyn Kelly finalizing $30M exit from NBC
Megyn Kelly is close to finalizing a $30 million exit from NBC, sources confirm to Page Six.
The embattled anchor, who celebrated her 48th birthday Sunday, was dumped from her 9 a.m. slot on “Today” last month after questioning why it was racist to wear blackface for Halloween.
And as she prepares to sign her exit deal, the mom of three is already planning her return to TV, Page Six has learned.
Sources say NBC owner Comcast will pay Kelly around $30 million. She signed a $69 million deal when she joined the network after leaving Fox News in 2017.
A source familiar with the negotiations said nothing will happen until next week at the earliest, admitting: “It’s taking slightly longer than expected, the paperwork is going back and forth.”
Another confirmed: “Everyone wants this to be over — both Megyn and NBC — and Comcast has the money to pay off Megyn. We thought this would be a done deal a few weeks ago.”
People are speculating about where Megyn will go next. What if she doesn’t go anywhere? She certainly doesn’t need to work.
