Ann Curry has been Today’s anchor for 14 years, but now she’ll be slipping into a different role according to reports — co-host!
So, with Meredith Vieira exiting and Ann Curry moving up, where does that leave everyone else in the shake-up?
The show’s 9 a.m. anchor, Natalie Morales, will likely move into Curry’s spot, while White House correspondent and popular MSNBC anchor, Savannah Guthrie, shifts into Morales’ spot.
Matt Lauer’s plans are still up in the air, as rumblings surfaced he’ll be leaving the show when his contract is up at the end of 2012.
Many questioned why Meredith Vieira would leave a successful show after five years. Her response was simple — family.
“If I were to leave at the end of next year because it’s time for me, I wouldn’t jump into another show,” Vieira told Ladies Home Journal in the past. She added, “I would look forward to not working, to traveling with Richard and carving out time for us.”
