"The parties have resolved their differences, and Megyn Kelly is no longer an employee of NBC", according to an NBC News statement. Her remarks prompted the suspension of her hour on NBC News' flagship program "Today", but network executives had already been feuding with her over disappointing ratings and the show's editorial focus. "She wants to look like Diana Ross for one day, and I don't know how that got racist on Halloween".

On Friday night, NBC News confirmed toThe New York Times that both sides reached an agreement, nearly three months after the network fired Kelly for wondering why it was inappropriate for people to wear blackface costumes on Halloween. This means the news anchor is able to begin working immediately. "Back when I was a kid that was ok, as long as you were dressing up as, like, a character". " It was also acceptable, she believed, when "Real Housewives of New York" reality star Luanne de Lesseps wore blackface as Diana Ross for an episode". " Kelly said on her show back on October 23". During her hour of the show, Kelly started off with an extended apology and said it was "wrong" of her to defend blackface costumes. Her regret over the comment, however, was apparently not enough to sway NBC executives.
"Hope you don't mind these faces!" she wrote alongside a smiling selfie with Al Roker, Sheinelle Jones and Craig Melvin.
There's no non-compete clause, meaning Kelly is free to seek other television work if she wants to.
