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.

    We only have one local affiliate that reports the weather. It's nuts. The local NBC affiliate sells their weather forecasts to the local CBS affiliate so the local weather guy is on two channels. The others don't even have that.

    When the local morning news is over, sometimes I don't change the channel fast enough and wind up seeing that stupid Matt Lauer face on my tv before I can find the remote!

    LoL!

    I won't miss her necessarily - I don't get attached to newscasters. I did happen to see her goodbye -- and I felt bad for her because she did seem to be rather upset.

    I heard that . . . . I didn't know she cashed in . . . but I still felt bad for her - she seemed sincerely upset.

    Exactly Diana. Matt could be at least partly to blame for the low ratings.

    The BC's and the BS news networks are dying a slow death in the ratings.

    You would think their viewership would go up with all of the folks canceling their cable because they can't afford it anymore.

    She was the only one that was down to earth and not full of herself. She spoke to people in a fresh way and not condescendingly. I'll miss Ann Curry. She is a breath of fresh air.

    Isn't it funny how different people have different "takes" on her???? Human nature I suppose, and what you look for...or want...in a person.

    I don't watch hardly any main stream TV. I don't like their left slant and I get really tired of the "celebrity" thing. They are just another tabloid TV show.
