It’s (sorta) official: Ann Curry‘s Todays are numbered.
NBC is readying a plan to replace Matt Lauer’s embattled co-host just one year after she succeeded Meredith Viera, according to the New York Times.
The news comes as the Today show attempts to reclaim its long-held perch as TV’s most-watched morning program. This Spring, Good Morning America ended Today‘s 16-year-long winning streak. Many have blamed the ratings erosion on Curry’s lack of chemistry with Lauer.
One option being discussed, per the Times, involves Curry segueing into a foreign correspondent role — something many consider to be her strength.
Today’s Savannah Guthrie is considered the odds-on favorite to replace Curry.
Thoughts? Is Curry unfairly being made the scapegoat for Today‘s ratings woes? Or is she one of the reasons you switched over to GMA? Sound off below!Follow @MichaelAusiello
