Terms were not immediately disclosed.Kelly was roughly halfway through a three-year deal for a whopping total of $69 million. It is not immediately clear if she will receive all of the remaining money.Terms of a non-disparagement agreement were critical for both sides, as Kelly has hinted that she knows about some of the skeletons in NBC\u2019s closet.FOX NEWS DOMINATES CNN, MSNBC DURING PRESIDENTIAL ADDRESS WITH 8 MILLION VIEWERSOn Thursday night, Kelly told a TMZ cameraman that she would \u201cdefinitely\u201d return to television in 2019.Kelly\u2019s tenure at NBC News was rocky from the start, beginning with a short-lived Sunday night newsmagazine program that was rolled out with a widely panned interview with Russian President Vladimir Putin. NBC News was then\u00a0criticized for the way the network promoted\u00a0her next interview -- with controversial \u201cInfoWars\u201d host\u00a0Alex Jones, who infamously called the 2012 Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting a hoax.SAN DIEGO STATION: CNN ASKED FOR LOCAL BORDER WALL PERSPECTIVE, BUT BACKED OFF WHEN RESPONSE FAVORED TRUMPThings didn\u2019t exactly improve once Kelly\u2019s hour of NBC\u2019s flagship \u201cToday\u201d show kicked off in the fall of 2017. \u201cToday\u201d loyalists were furious that fan favorite Tamron Hall was shown the door to make room for Kelly. Then \u201cMegyn Kelly Today\u201d made early headlines when the highly compensated host asked Hollywood icon Jane Fonda about her plastic surgery \u2013 which resulted in a public feud.\n NBC News chairman Andy Lack and Megyn Kelly attend the 2017 Mirror Awards in New York City. (Photo by Dimitrios Kambouris\/Getty Images)\n Kelly's first season averaged nearly 2.4 million viewers, 375,000 fewer than the "Today" show 9 a.m. hour had drawn before she arrived.\u00a0Her fate at NBC was essentially sealed when she pondered why \u201cblackface\u201d is frowned upon during a live panel discussion about Halloween costumes.NBC announced on Oct. 26 that Kelly\u2019s troubled hour of the NBC News\u00a0flagship \u201cToday\u201d\u00a0would not return after the controversial \u201cblackface\u201d remarks. Since the announcement, her status has been in limbo as lawyers worked out the details of the breakup.MEGYN KELLY\u2019S LAWYER RIPS NBC NEWS BOSS OVER \u2018FALSE AND IRRESPONSIBLE REPORTS\u2019Hard-charging Hollywood attorney Bryan Freedman, who publicly\u00a0feuded with NBC during the process, represented Kelly. He accused the network of allowing \u201ccompletely false and irresponsible\u201d rumors to circulate, while NBC mocked Freedman\u00a0for negotiating through the media.Kelly was only about halfway through a three-year megacontract. Because of the lofty salary, many industry insiders feel that the \u201cblackface\u201d scandal provided NBC with an opportune excuse to dump Kelly.The former Fox News star rose to fame as a fiery prime-time host, and media watchdogs felt she was an awkward fit on a bubbly morning show from the outset.In addition, Kelly is a champion of the #MeToo movement and irked network honchos by\u00a0taking on-air shots at NBC for not hiring an independent law firm\u00a0to conduct an investigation into the culture of the company as NBC News was caught up in a variety of sexual misconduct scandals during her short tenure.The Daily Beast\u00a0published a bombshell report in September that detailed NBC News chairman Andy\u00a0Lack\u2019s history\u00a0of using nondisclosure and separation agreements\u00a0to his advantage. The story also noted that Lack was \u201cannoyed\u201d Kelly insisted \u201con turning the show into a regular forum for the alleged victims of powerful men.\u201dCNN\u2019S JIM ACOSTA MOCKED FOR ACCIDENTALLY PROVING THAT BORDER WALLS WORKLack\u2019s news division has been under fire for refusing to air journalist Ronan Farrow\u2019s reporting on now-disgraced Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein's sexual misconduct. Farrow\u2019s reporting helped launch the #MeToo movement and won the coveted Pulitzer Prize after its publication\u00a0in The New Yorker.In addition to the Weinstein debacle, NBC declared that management was oblivious to Matt Lauer\u2019s widespread sexual misconduct \u2013 which was found via in-house investigators.Lack -- who personally brought Kelly to NBC --\u00a0was close friends with Lauer, who was terminated at the height of the #MeToo movement for sexual misconduct. Kelly raised eyebrows last year when asked if Lauer could ever make a comeback.\u201cI know too much that others don\u2019t know,\u201d Kelly said in an interview with\u00a0Us Weekly.If Kelly truly knows \u201ctoo much that others don\u2019t\u201d regarding Lauer\u2019s sexual misconduct, it could explain why her exit negotiations took so long.
