Journalist group accuses NBC of 'whitewashing' network

The National Association of Black Journalists sent a letter to Comcast Corp.'s NBC (US) for the alleged "whitewashing" of the network by replacing African American anchor Tamron Hall with former FOX News Channel (US) anchor Megyn Kelly.

While acknowledging that NBC "has been a leader for diversity in broadcasting," the group expressed displeasure at Hall's departure and has requested a meeting with NBC leadership. The group also claimed that Kelly has a "well-documented history of offensive remarks regarding people of color," according to a Feb. 1 letter.

A representative for NBC, meanwhile, cited the network's "long and proven history as an industry leader in newsroom diversity," and said the broadcaster will continue to engage in the running dialogue with the NABJ and other advocacy groups to work for the advancement for such goals, New York Post reported Feb. 2.
