Ann Curry Breaking News and Photos
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?
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.”
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.
Based on Mike Tompkins viral a capella cover, the Today Show crew wanted to see what it would take for a video to become a viral sensation for a special segment.
Mike was on hand helping the team of anchors as they recorded the soundtrack in a music studio and then later shot video behind a green screen.

On Angelina: “I like her a lot. I see her as a very smart person, a very compassionate person who does movies.”
On Brad and Angie highlighting about what really matters in life: “What I love is that when you talk to actors you know the good they can do – it’s really touching because there are so many reasons why they could be just selfish and focus on themselves, but they’re not. When very very powerful people like Angie and Brad are focused on lovely projects that really change peoples lives you just want to applaud them, it’s just fantastic.”
On Angie’s upcoming project: “In fact I may be talking to Angie coming up very soon. It’s something important and I’m excited to see her again.”
On his six children: “I’m really proud of this family. I look at my sons and daughters. … I feel rich being around them. Each one offers so much to the mix.”
On why he doesn’t talk much about his family in interviews: “I just walk away feeling bad about it when I do. It seems to get cheapened somehow as it goes through the filter and the airwaves. I just want to keep it close to the chest.”
On if he’d marry Angelina Jolie: “If we feel it’s important to our kids, we would.”
