Unfortunately for those expecting any kind of inside scoop from the reporters who work with Kelly, the package that aired only served as a confirmation of everything that was previously reported.
"Sources familiar with the situation tell NBC News that conversations have already started about Megyn's exit," said correspondent Morgan Radford. "The exact details of which remain unclear at this point."
Well, thanks for nothing, but feel free to watch the "Today" summation of the story below.

An NBC News article published Friday cited a source not authorized to speak publicly. "Conversations have already started about Megyn's exit from the network," the individual told NBC News, which declined to offer official comment for its own report. In an earlier statement, NBC said, "Given the circumstances ''Megyn Kelly Today' will be on tape the rest of the week."
Kelly dug her professional grave on Tuesday morning during a panel discussion about some colleges discouraging students from wearing stereotypical costumes. She called the wave of political correctness on Halloween "absurd," and crossed a line for most viewers when she brought up America's bad blackface habit that the country has been trying to shake for decades.
She asked "what is racist" about painting your face as another ethnicity, and continued, "Because you do get in trouble if you are a white person who puts on blackface for Halloween or a black person who puts on whiteface for Halloween. Back when I was a kid, that was okay as long as you were dressing up as a character."
"Real Housewives of New York" star Luann de Lesseps learned that lesson the hard way last Halloween when she painted her skin to dress up as singer Diana Ross. Kelly, however, didn't understand Bravo viewers' outrage over the costume.
"People said that that was racist," Kelly marveled. "I thought, who doesn't love Diana Ross? She wants to look like Diana Ross for one day. I don't know how that got racist on Halloween."
