"I don't want it to appear that I'm trying to be." she trailed off before telling ET, "I'll just say this to you, I intend to reach out to her, but I have not reached out to her yet". One worker called Kelly's on-air behavior, specifically her interactions with actress Jane Fonda, "very un-Today show like". "Next week, the 9 a.m. hour will be hosted by other "Today" co-anchors".

The next day, Kelly apologized for what she'd said, saying, "Good morning everyone and welcome to the show".

Her live show was replaced Thursday and Friday with a pre-taped episode. A source revealed to People that the network had been reassigning Megyn Kelly Today workers to other roles. Kelly's Today colleagues Al Roker and Craig Melvin condemned her comments on Wednesday.
