Ann Curry For CNN? NBC Keep Her Guessing

Filed under : Celebrity News
Will former “Today” anchor be moving to CNN to take over Anderson Cooper’s spot?A full week after Ann Curry told her NBC bosses that she wanted out of her contract, the Peacock network executives are still keeping the popular journalist in the dark about her future. Not that that surprises Ann, who feels (as do others) that the network treated her badly.A source close to Ann says that she still has had no notification or even a hint as to whether she will be released from her contract with NBC.”Ann has clearly gotten the short end of the stick from NBC. Ann’s reporting on air has been greatly diminished, and she is ready to move on,” the source said.

Curry’s lawyer is on the case, and thinks it’s a very good one. If NBC keeps her hanging on much longer or refuses to release her, Ann and her lawyer are set to pursue a breach of contract lawsuit against NBC, “and she would have an excellent case,” the source added.

Curry is hoping to move to CNN in February where she’d join her former “TODAY” boss Jeff Zucker, who is now running the cable news net.

She wants to step into the 8pm EST slot currently occupied by Anderson Cooper.

That would free up Anderson to become a kind of globetrotting correspondent in the mold of Christiane Amanpour. It’s something which Anderson has done in the past and a job at which he has been very good.

Since Curry’s disastrous departure from “TODAY” this past summer, the show’s ratings have plummeted, allowing ABC’s rival “Good Morning America” to capture the #1 spot.

“It’s a no brainer, just let Ann out of her contract, and everyone will be happy. Ann is ready to start a new venture in her life professionally,” the source adds.

What do you think? Ann Curry for CNN?
