NEW YORK (1010 WINS) -- It's official: 'Megyn Kelly Today' is over.

Megyn Kelly Today is not returning. Next week, the 9 a.m. hour will be hosted by other TODAY co-anchors," an NBC spokesperson said in a statement Friday afternoon.

But a lawyer for Kelly said that she remains an employee of NBC News and negotiations about "next steps" are ongoing.

Attorney Bryan Freedman did not elaborate on the discussions.

The move comes after Kelly defended blackface as a Halloween costume earlier this week.
