Ann Curry finally leaves NBC

Ann Curry is leaving NBC two and half years after the network’s ungraceful handling of her TODAY departure. The network made her a “NBC News national and international correspondent, and a TODAY anchor-at-large” — but she really didn’t do much since leaving TODAY.

The NY Post reported that NBC will make an announcement soon after weeks of negotiations with Curry regarding her contract worth $12 million a year. An NBC insider said: “Ann has been unhappy for a long time because she’s basically doing nothing, while NBC is unhappy that she has been paid a lot of money to do nothing.”

Ann Curry will soon announce her own production company.

I miss Ann on TV. I was just thinking about her the other day. Hopefully she can do more things now away from NBC.
