We’ve all heard the news swirling about the possibility of Ann Curring leaving the “Today” show — well now it’s been confirmed.
One of my favorite journalists — Ann Curry — says she will no long co-host the Today show — effective immediately.
“This is not easy to say,” a choked-up Curry, 55, announced on Thursday’s show, as her costars sat on the sofa next to her. She said Thursday would be her last day as a regular on the show, but “I will still be part of the Today show family, in a different role.”
Ann said she has been “given a fancy new title” and will roam the globe for NBC, reporting the news.
With tears in her eyes, she expressed her gratitude and love for the viewers and the behind-the-scenes staff, and said,
“To those of you who saw me as a groundbreaker, I am sorry that could not carry the ball across the finish line – but, man, did I try.”
Aw man. so sad. But I know Ann is collecting BIG time millions for this so I will proudly suck the tear back into my eyeball socket.
