Al Roker Does Not Want To Replace Megyn Kelly

Following Megyn Kelly‘s ignorance about blackface, she was met with criticism that ultimately led to her departure from NBC. The network is reportedly having a hard time replacing her. A source says that Al Roker, who was very critical of Kelly’s comments, is a contender to be her replacement but he “doesn’t necessarily want to return” after he and Tamron Hall were replaced by Megyn Kelly in the first place. The insider says:

It’s honestly quite offensive that NBC would just assume he would.

As far as Megyn Kelly’s next move,  Mark Feldstein, a broadcast journalism professor at the University of Maryland, says her options are pretty limited.

She’s an anchorwoman-without-portfolio and without a home – she’s stateless now. She may be fine (financially) with all the money she’s saved, but there are not a lot of options for her, and I’m sure they’re very unappealing options for someone with the money and visibility she’s used to having.

Who do you think should replace her?
