This morning came sad news from The Today Show couch (well, depending on who you're rooting for, I guess) as Ann Curry announced that she will no longer be a regular co-host of the morning show and will instead transition into a new role. Shut off your C-SPAN Obamacare coverage for a few moments, folks: this is the real news.
According to a statement released by NBC:
As TODAY Anchor at Large and National and International Correspondent for NBC News, Curry will lead a new team covering stories spanning the globe. She'll anchor prime-time specials and report for TODAY, Nightly News, Rock Center, Dateline and MSNBC, and will have a major presence across all digital properties.
"We're going to go all over the world and all over this country at a time where this country and this world needs clarity," she said.
