A report Friday on the “Today” show cited a source familiar with the situation as saying NBC News and Kelly are in talks about the anchor leaving the network. Another source who was not authorized to speak publicly was cited in the report as saying Kelly’s representatives are scheduled to meet Friday with company executives and it looks “extremely unlikely” that she’ll stay.
