Curry ready to spice up ‘Today’

Anchor to get promotion after Vieira's exit

Ann Curry is expected to get a promotion to co-host when Meredith Vieira leaves NBC’s “Today” in June. National correspondent Natalie Morales is reportedly slated to take over as news anchor, with Savannah Guthrie moving up to take Morales’ 9 a.m. anchor slot on the show.

The New York Times initially reported the changes late Sunday evening; reps for NBC News declined to comment.

The transition at “Today” is a key issue for NBC News because the four-hour ayemcast is very profitable, especially by news program standards, raking in an estimated $200 million annually.

Rumors about the show’s talent roster have been circulating for weeks — insiders have been saying that Matt Lauer is unlikely to renew his contract with “Today” when it expires in December.

Curry has served as newsreader at “Today” since 1997, distinguishing herself with international coverage of events from the Iraq and Afghanistan wars to the Southeast Asian tsunami in 2004. She was considered for the co-host job when Katie Couric left the program for CBS in 2006.
