NBC Offers Ann Curry $10 Million to Leave ‘Today’?

Is Ann Curry leaving the Today show for $10 million?

NBC’s Today show has long been the home of the nation’s favorite starting line-up: Al Roker, Matt Lauer, Katie Couric…oops! She abandoned ship for CBS Evening News.  And they recycled her when the ratings dropped on a consistent basis and she headed over to ABC’s morning show Good Morning America.  Now, NBC is prepared to do some recycling of their own.

It appears to be time for Ann Curry to give up her co-lead anchor spot on NBC’s Today show and she’s only one year into her three-year contract.  According to TMZ, her replacement will be announced by the “coming week.”  There’s been rumors that the network has blamed her for their low ratings and a lack of chemistry between her and Matt Lauer.

It has been reported that she’s been offered $10 million, but it’s not certain.  The 15-year veteran with the show has a three-year contract that has to be honored.  So whether they get rid of her or not, they have to pay her.

One week after the New York Times reported that NBC would be replacing Curry, a heartless, but unintentional media snafu occurred when the very next day the Ladies Home Journal printed excerpts of Curry saying she’d like to stay with the network 10 to 15 more years and in the face of all the criticism of the job she’s doing at the Today show, she said:

“Am I not good enough?”

Don’t worry, Ann!  Oprah has a soft place for you to land over at OWN.

  1. The Today show has a big surprise. The show does not have the “IT” factor anymore. GMA has the “IT” factor. It is very relevant with today’s viewers and appeals to a very wide audience. Ann Curry got beat up unnecessarily and so did NBC by paying Matt Laurer what they gave him. He is not worth it at all. Savanah Guthrie seems very nice and will do a great job. But the today show has lost its luster and blaming one person really is outrageous and I think they will lose viewers for awhile. They will be #2 and who knows CBS THIS Morning might just beat them and won’t they be surprised. Ann Curry is a class act just imagine how she has felt all week she still goes to work every day under these horrible circumstances. The show needs a entire revamping not just one person. Amy Roback was smart she got out and went over to GMA.

  5. Palms down, Apple’s app store wins by a mile. It’s a huge number of all sorts of apps vs a relatively unhappy collection of a handful for Zune. Microsoft has plans, particularly within the realm of video games, but I’m not sure I would want to guess on the future if this side is essential to you. The iPod is a much better selection in that case.

  6. Nice blog right here! Additionally your web site lots up fast! What web host are you the usage of? Can I get your affiliate hyperlink in your host? I want my website loaded up as quickly as yours lol
