Donahue called out what he perceived to be a double standard at NBC in a lengthy statement on Friday. Next week, the 9 a.m. hour will be hosted by other "TODAY' co-anchors".
Kelly made her debut as NBC morning TV host on September 25, 2017, taking over the 9 a.m. slot of "Today" and saying she wanted viewers "to have a laugh with us, a smile, sometimes a tear and maybe a little hope to start your day". Her quick departure also meant she was not able to say goodbye on air.
On Wednesday, Kelly apologized to viewers and said, "I want to begin with two words: I'm sorry". I'm also very excited about the next chapter. Roker posted a tweet celebrating the seven-week ratings streak the 9 a.m. hour had enjoyed, reportedly hours after they learned about being replaced by Kelly. Kelly interviewed the "InfoWars" founder and popular conspiratorial talk radio host in an interview in which she tried to grill him on some of his more controversial claims.
Following a social media backlash, Kelly wrote in an email to NBC News colleagues that she realized such behavior is wrong, that the history of blackface in culture is abhorrent.
Kelly then apologized on-air during Wednesday's Megyn KellyToday.
On her morning show, the 47-year-old news host said that dressing up in blackface was okay when she was a kid as long as you were impersonating a character.
"What is racist?" she asked. She admitted that she defended blackface costumes on Tuesday and continued, "I learned that given the history of blackface being used in terrible ways in this country, it is not OK for that to be part of any costume, Halloween or otherwise". "They're contacting the staff and reassigning everyone today".
She offered a fuller apology to the nation at large, in which she said, through tears, that she did not mean to hurt anyone, let alone further divisions in the country.
For her part, Hall has stayed quiet and refrained from publicly commenting on this week's controversy.
