NBC Prepares to Replace Ann Curry on ‘Today’ (Under the bus she goes...)
NY Times ^ | 6/20/12 | BRIAN STELTER

Posted on 06/20/2012 6:55:00 PM PDT by jimbo123

NBC executives are readying a plan to replace Ann Curry on the “Today” show, only a year after she became the co-host of the iconic franchise.

The planning — which is taking place in secret and has not been finalized — is effectively an admission that all is not well at “Today,” the show that invented morning television 60 years ago and has inspired countless lower-rated competitors since.

Maybe people are sick of NYC’s blatant liberal agenda - pro-Obama, anti-Christian.

Ann Curry has been there forever, it seems ... wasn’t she there when Uncle Walter was at CBS?

Always found her attractive. Didn’t need to listen to her though.

I hope NBC puts Rachel MadCow on the Obama/Democrat Toady Show. NBC will deserve the loss of viewers. Rachel Maddow and NBC -- a match made in a Bull-Dyke Lezzie Bar. (Wonder if Maddow will let NBC play the man once in a while?)

Absolutely yes, I find the test pattern much more interesting.

That’s Robin Roberts.

Word had it that Ann wasn’t liked by Matt LLLLauer.....

Wait. What is the “farewell to our beloved Ann” show going to look like? Is she going to smile bravely as they feature reruns of Matt and her in their Halloween costumes going back ten years?

Will she just fade away..or best of all, say “F. you” to the phonies anchors who are throwing her under the bus and storm off the set?
don’t usually watch but can’t miss this one!

I’ve had a crush on her for years. She looks so good they don’t need to use the blurry lens like they do on other female anchors her age.

For one, I could tolerate watching a test pattern for an hour. Today Show, not so much...I

Iconic franchise? Oh Puleeeez.

And I agree with Sun - people (REAL people) are sick of their bias.

When I saw Ann Curry standing beside Sarah Palin and AC was biting her lips like she was trying not to burst out laughing or trying to look like she didn’t care if anyone noticed that being beside Sarah Palin was the last place she wanted to be, AC became the ugliest person in the world to me. Inside and out.

Hope she is unceremoniously escorted out by security, holding a box with all her professional worldly goods in it while everyone looks on in indifferent silence.

I cannot stand her. Her interviewing style is so biased and nasty. I will not miss seeing her.

Don’t know who Ann Curry is or what she looks like, so this ain’t no big thang for me.

How LIBERATING that is!!!!! I guess I can call myself a feminist now?!?!

The next in a long line of MSM intellectual pimps and prostitutes shown the door by dismal ratings. They seem to be having a contest on which show can muster the lowest ratings.

You're right on but... Look, I'm not here to help NBC, so hold that thought while I say a GREAT replacement would be Elizabeth Hasselbeck.

When Ann’s hair was long, I enjoyed seeing her, I confess. But she has always been a leftist shill and liar. What a pity that she has become one more victim of Obamanomics and her fraudulent network. Bob
P.S. Ann has claimed in different interviews both that she had grown her hair long AND chopped it off in honor of her late grandma! She couldn’t even keep her lies about herself straight.

From wiki: Curry was born in Guam to Bob Curry, of Cherokee, French, German, Scottish and Irish descent from Pueblo, Colorado, and Hiroe Nagase, originally from Japan.

Gosh. She could teach law at Harvard, or even run for US Senate from Massachusetts.

Maybe she’ll get ripped and sing us a goodbye song, like Connie Chung, who was equally unpleasant to watch.

i’m certainly not a fan of katie couric nor Matt Lauer but... how come Matt doesn’t go? I think Ann is very gentle, nice and reports well. I think Matt stinks...why doesn’t he go?

YES, and if anyone wants to suggest that to NBC:

nbcshows@nbc.com

Hope the email is up-to-date, because I haven’t used it lately.

Actually, even if it does help NYC, it would help to get some truth out to more folks, and maybe they would vote a little wiser.

Sargent Schultz and Madcow would be a good replacement as it slips into the trash heap.

Putting her politics aside, I have always found her to be elegant and ladylike.

Qualities that are rarer and rarer in women these days.

Most of the hostesses going back to, but not including Jane Pauley have struck me as being pretty trashy...

I know a guy who repairs city transit buses. He spends most of his workday "under the bus", and he enjoys it.

Notice how Curry's Wiki entry (authored by her or her agent, of course) puts "Cherokee" first in the list, even though the list is not alphabetical.

I remember, back in the 60’s, my cousin saying in front of Grandma, “We’re all part indian”, and Grandma went on a tirade about how we weren’t. We all laugh at how my cousin could spin up Grandma - she got it honestly from her dad.
