Ann Curry Confirms 'Today' Show Exit

Today co-host Ann Curry has confirmed her exit from the morning show after a week of speculation.

The 55-year-old journalist has served as a co-host on the show opposite Matt Lauer for the past year and will be entering into a new multi-year contract with NBC to cover the world’s biggest stories via network specials.

“It’s going to be a bit of a tough day,” Ann told USA Today of the announcement she is expected to make on-air on Thursday (June 28). “I’m going to have to tell our viewers. That’s what makes me more emotional than anything. I don’t want to leave them. I love them. And I will really miss them.”

“You know, Matt and I have had great on-air chemistry for 14 years, been part of the No. 1 winning team for a history-making number of years,” she added. “That said, I just finished my freshman year as co-host. In every single co-host’s first year, there have been kinks to be worked out, and perhaps I deserve as much blame for that as anyone.”

WHO DO YOU THINK should replace Ann Curry as co-host of Today?
