On January 8, 2010, while visiting New York City, I had the opportunity to meet Ann Curry outside the TODAY Show studios. Ann is an American television personality, news journalist, and photojournalist. Last week, NBC made the decision to remove her as co-host of TODAY due to a downturn in the number of viewers.
In my opinion, NBC has removed one of their finest journalists from the show. Ann was named co-host less than a year ago and had not had a chance to shine yet. Because ratings drive network television, she was removed. I doubt, however, that we have seen the last of her.
Even though it was frigid the morning I saw her (10 to 15 degrees if I recall), she was kind enough to visit with me, pose for a photograph and sign an autograph. As you can tell, she has quite a distinctive signature. Ann Curry is a true professional and she will be missed on TODAY. Good Luck, Ann, in whatever role you pursue next.
