NBC News says the “Megyn Kelly Today” show is being canceled.

In a statement, the network news division said the show won’t return, a decision that follows fallout from Kelly’s on-air comments about blackface.

NBC News says the hour that had belonged to Kelly will be hosted next week by other “Today” show co-anchors.

The network on Friday again aired a repeat of “Megyn Kelly Today” just as it did Thursday following this week’s controversy.

A report Friday on the “Today” show cited a source familiar with the situation as saying NBC News and Kelly are in talks about the anchor leaving the network. Another source who was not authorized to speak publicly was cited in the report as saying Kelly’s representatives are scheduled to meet Friday with company executives and it looks “extremely unlikely” that she’ll stay.

The “Today” report said executives will likely be weighing Kelly’s departure compensation.
