NBC News has officially terminated its short-lived relationship with former RNC chair Ronna McDaniel, according to a memo sent to staff by the network’s boss. 

“There is no doubt that the last several day have been difficult for the News Group,” NBCUniversial News Group Chairman Cesar Conde began his memo Tuesday, as reported by Axios. “After listening to the legitimate concerns of many of you, I have decided that Ronna McDaniel will not be an NBC News contributor.”

Conde acknowledged McDaniel’s hiring had undermined the goal of a “cohesive and aligned” newsroom and offered an apology to his staff.

NBC did not immediately respond to Fox News Digital’s requests for comment.
