Following the abrupt end of her tenure at NBC News — prompted by her misstep on the blackface issue — Megyn Kelly has the green light to take a job at another news outlet, Variety reports, citing an unnamed source who’s familiar with the situation.
“Kelly is not expected to be bound by any non-compete restrictions, and could take a job at other news operations, this person said,” Variety reports.
The story notes that the revelation “suggests exit talks between the star anchor and the NBCUniversal-owned division are moving toward a close.”
NBCUniversal and Kelly’s camp weren’t commenting.
“People familiar with the talks suggested that many issues between the two parties — money; non-disparagement; and other issues — are largely resolved,” Variety adds. “They acknowledged, however, that attorneys continue to wrangle over legal language and minor disparities.”
