Next week, other Today show co-anchors will host during the 9 a.m. hour that had belonged to Kelly, NBC News said. She has accused Fox co-founder Roger Ailes of sexually harassing her. Ailes died in May 2017.
"She was trying to spread her wings and do a different type of show", Martin said.
Kelly earned fame as a longtime anchor for Fox News, notably sparring with Donald Trump during the 2016 presidential election campaign.
At issue in the negotiations is whether Kelly is entitled to the remainder of her contract, which was reported to be worth $69 million in total over three years.
"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", Kelly said.
Kelly did not appear on television Thursday or Friday, as the network opted to run reruns in her absence.
The high-paid host's rocky tenure at NBC is coming to an end after she made remarks about blackface on Tuesday during a segment about controversial Halloween costumes. "Back when I was a kid, that was OK just as long as you were dressing as a character".
NBC didn't address the status of Kelly herself, who reports said was negotiating over her multimillion-dollar contract.

Reyes drove to the parking lot of McDonald's on a recent evening, where she caught her dog waiting to bed fed by other customers. When Reyes pulled over her auto , Princess immediately recognised her and started wagging her tail, stated the report.
Kelly's comments made this week struck up backlash when the 47-year-old journalist defended the use of blackface in Halloween costumes, questioning, "What is racist?"
Adding to the support was Fox News" meteorologist Janice Dean also weighed in on Twitter, writing: "My friend Megyn Kelly is not a racist.
So where did NBC and Kelly go wrong?
Kelly did not host new episodes of Megyn Kelly Today as scheduled on Thursday and Friday mornings.
Kelly's newly-hired attorney Bryan Freedman reacted to Friday's NBC announcement with a statement of his own. "Rather than creating a teaching moment for everyone, NBC chose to shame her", McManus said. Even her hotly contested interview with right-wing conspiracy theorist Alex Jones premiered to a relatively measly 3.5 million viewers, losing out to a rerun of "America's Funniest Home Videos" in the same time slot. She famously declared on air at the cable channel that both Santa and Jesus were white.
Lahren should consider why she finds it so unreasonable that a news anchor in a position of prominence should be held accountable for how she does that job.
