Ann Curry Replaces Today Show's Meredith Vieira

Meredith Vieira announced that she’ll leave NBC’s Today Show in June after a five-year run.

“This is a difficult day for me,” said the 57-year-old morning talk show host on Monday (May 9). “I’m trying hard to hold it together.”

Five years ago, Meredith replaced Katie Couric. In just a few weeks, Today Show news anchor Ann Curry will replace Meredith as host.

Last month, Katie left the CBS Early Morning News. She reportedly will host a syndicated daytime talk show. Matt‘s contract with Today is up at the end of 2012.

Congratulations Ann you deserve it! NBC has been keeping her in the background for too long because she’s part Asian, now she has the top job.

CBS Early Morning News? Really?

Congrats Ann. I hate Matt.

Good Luck Meredith. We’ll miss you!
Ann seems like a very, very, very nice person–but one who can’t ask a simple question as an interviewer because she’s too involved getting camera time, and/or figuring out how to phrase a sentence. Annoying. Insulting. There are clearly better choices!! Natalie. Probably 100s of other, very, very capable and smart women or men…Oh well. We as viewers have choices, too.

I think it’s about time. Ann is a class act, one of the best at her game.Congratulations Ann, My wife and i love you.
