Megyn Kelly's Legal Battle Ensnares NBC News Chair

WATCH: Jimmy Kimmel, Jimmy Fallon get hall pass for blackface costumes and worse

Kelly pondered on Megyn Kelly Today to a panel that included Jenna Bush Hager, Jacob Soboroff and Melissa Rivers. Kelly was reportedly making about $20 million a year with her NBC contract.

Kelly also offered an apology at the opening of her show on Wednesday, which ended up being her last appearance - as a previously recorded Megyn Kelly Today episode aired in Thursday in place of her live show.

DailyMail.com visited the NBC Experience Store at 30 Rockefeller Center on Monday and found that the entire space had been cleared of Megyn Kelly merchandise. Lord, help us heal.

Later, Channel One's press service said that Kelly's invitation should be met with irony but added that the channel would review her resume if they ever received it.

Russia's Channel One television anchor Kirill Kleymenov has invited US presenter Megyn Kelly to co-host the channel's Vremya program.

According toTMZ, Roker has been tapped to replace Megyn Kelly during the 9am hour of the daily talk show, and it's an interesting decision considering he had that spot before Kelly came in.

Multiple reports claim that the 47-year-old Kelly will not return to her job at NBC and is now negotiating her exit from the network alongside her attorneys.

Megyn Kelly, the former host of NBC's "Megyn Kelly Today", has tweeted for the first time since the network's executives announced she would be cut from the show.

It will let customers loan out their cars to users, as well as include a fleet of self-driving cars that can pick up passengers. In fact, he expected the company's cash flow position to be strong enough by early next year it may start paying down debt.

Melvin became a weekday news anchor on the Today Show back in September.

In the wake of Megyn Kelly's recent firing from Today, the NBC morning show's regular anchor team will take the reins for its 9 am hour - for the time being, at least.

Kelly's lawyer Bryan Freedman was scheduled to meet with executives to negotiate an exit, though it wasn't clear when the meeting was scheduled for. "Back when I was a kid, that was OK, as long as you were dressing up as, like, a character". On occasion, she outperformed fellow former Fox News host Bill O'Reilly in the ratings, and she had been seen as key to helping the network attract younger viewers. She last appeared on her show on the network on October 24, apologizing at the top of the segment for her comments the previous day about blackface and whiteface.

Her comments suggested she condones the racist act. Roker was among those criticizing her.

"I was wrong and I am sorry", she said. "I learned that given the history of blackface being used in very bad ways by racists in this country, it is not OK for that to be part of any costume, Halloween or otherwise".

Kelly later apologized for the blunder, but the damage was done.

"One of the wonderful things about my job is that I get the chance to express and hear a lot of opinions", she wrote. "I look forward to continuing that discussion".
