Ann Curry ended her anchorship with "Today" Thursday morning after being fired due to low ratings. Curry was very emotional and had an awkward exchange with Matt Lauer.At 8:50 this morning, Ann Curry signed off as Today show co-host. It was a teary scene, and Ann was heart-breakingly apologetic, saying: "For all of you, who saw me as a groundbreaker, I'm sorry I couldn't carry the ball over the finish line… but I did try." Ouch. Matt Lauer offered a few words about Ann's contributions to the show, noting that she has "the biggest heart," which is a comment on her emotions, not her reporting skills. Matt also said, "It's not goodbye." But his body language was terribly casual — one arm up on the couch because yes, he owns the damn place — and the kiss he placed on Ann's head is best described as perfunctory. Al Roker and Natalie Morales each embraced Ann with hugs. No televised hug from Matt.

    I've always liked her and thought she did a good job. It's sad to see her go. I'll miss the sweet lady.

    I think Ann is a great interviewer. She is a good lady and should not have been treated the way she got demoted. But if one decides to be in this type of business, they have to be prepared for days like yesterday. I imagine that with the salary she was earning. She could stop working and never return back to work and live very comfortably. If I were her, that is what I would do. I would retire young and enjoy a life of no stress.

    And that is the end of the Today Show for me. What an amazingly crappy way to deal with such a lovely and talented lady. Incredible...just incredible. And they cut to the 10 o'clock ads, and cut back and Ann was gone with the replacement sitting there like nothing had happened. Incredible. Talk about getting the 'Bum's Rush'......

    Short story: She was a host of The Today Show who recently left the job. It is rumored that NBC forced her out of the position because of conflicts with Matt Lauer, her former co-host. Apparently, the network is trying to screw her out of money, and of course what the network is offering her is more money than I can imagine having.

    Even though I didn't watch the show, anytime you lose a person who is a
    real human being and not just a media robot , you lose . The NBC slide
    continues because their management is blind and soulless. When they do
    figure out the low ratings issue, I hope it way too late to save themselves.

    I agree, NBC has been going down for years now and thus move just puts another nail in the coffin. I think someone should look at who is making decisions for this network before it's oo late. Ann, I will miss you. You are the reason I watched that show.

    I've heard her name but wouldn't be able to pick her out of a gallery of other TV personalities. I can't remember ever watching the Today Show. I wish her well though.

    I don't even watch morning tv anymore and I'm going to miss Curry. She's been a staple of morning tv for a very long time. My impression of her was as a hard worker, reliable and concise. She's not old, so why dump her? May be that Lauer should be the one to go.

    Why should anne apologize for anything? She should have had that job years ago ann why are ratings all on her? Maybe they should get rid of that Prima Donna Matt Lauer, or those two booze swelling over the top b------ kathy lee and hoa. I say good luck to Anne she is the only one with integrety.

    I agree. As for Savanah: If she walks like a lawyer, talks like a lawyer and smiles like a lawyer, then she must be a lawyer. Watch out young lady, some much more skilled at the co-anchor chair than you will be has been thrown under the bus by "his majesty"

    She's too much of a quiet intellectual to be be a co-host. I will miss her, but it's not like her career is going downhill. On the other hand, NBC should replace Matt Lauer.

    They should have gotten rid of that arrogant, irritating Lefty, Matt Lauer.
