Megyn Kelly and NBC are officially parting ways. Kelly's talk show "Megyn Kelly Today" was canceled in October, after she defended Halloween costume using blackface.

Now CNN reports NBC will pay out what is left of Kelly's three-year contract, as part of a separation deal. The amount boils down to about $30 million.

Kelly will reportedly be legally prevented from making negative public comments about NBC, but can still appear on another network. Kelly says she expects to continue her broadcast career.

She has Capital Region ties as a graduate of Bethelehem High and Albany Law School.
