Charles On… How NBC treated Ann Curry is disgusting

On Thursday morning, I sat and watched Ann Curry say a tearful good-bye to her viewers on Today.  Clearly, the news veteran was teary eyed.  Just a little over a year ago, she started her dream job as the co-host of Today.  Now, she’s been forced out.

Curry’s tenure at Today spans my entire journalistic career including my time studying broadcasting in college.  As such, she is truly someone I admire and aspire to be like.  Her poise under pressure and her story telling ability is unparalleled.

The way Ann was treated is embarrassing, but she isn’t the one who should be embarrassed or the one taking accountability for failure.  NBC should be ashamed of themselves for acting too fast making themselves look like amateurs.

Ann Curry broke the news that she has been asked to leave her post as Today co-anchor on Thursday morning.  As we first told you in the overnight hours, after more than two decades on the show, Ann’s run as co-host will end after only one year in the top job.  From her current role on Today, Curry will move into a new position as Today show anchor-at-large and NBC News national/international correspondent.   This, however, might not be the the most shocking news on this topic.

The rumor mill is spinning that Ann’s departure could lead to a reunion between Regis Philbin and Kathie Lee Gifford, who co-hosted Live with Regis and Kathie Lee from 1988 to 2000.  GaySocialites.com spoke with a Today insider who says there is “a good chance” Regis and Kathie Lee will soon be co-hosting the fourth hour of Today.
