Former news host Megyn Kelly has officially severed ties with NBC and salvaged the remaining payments from her astonishing $69 million contract deal, the network reported Friday night. “The parties have resolved their differences, and Megyn Kelly is no longer an employee of NBC,” the company said in a statement. Kelly is just halfway through her three-year contract, but NBC has agreed to pay her the remainder of the money, believed to be close to $30 million, according to the network. Megyn Kelly and @NBCNews have agreed to terms that will see the high-profile TV host leave the company with a $30 million payout, according to a source familiar with the agreement. Ratings were lackluster on “Sunday Night With Megyn Kelly” and for her morning talk show, “Megyn Kelly Today.” Her multiple gaffes — more appropriate for Fox News — created tensions at her new job.
