Ann Curry: A video history of her time on ‘Today’

It was an on-air goodbye long on emotion but short on explanation (see video above). As widely anticipated, Ann Curry bid adieu to the “Today” program she called a family as she fought back tears. But the five-minute farewell left a mystery as to why she was stepping aside for a new role at NBC News–lackluster chemistry with Matt Lauer was blamed for the franchise’s newfound ratings vulnerability–or who was to replace her–Savannah Guthrie is reportedly close to a deal for the co-anchor role.

It was back on March 11, 1997 that Curry first joined the program, as seen below (link).

On June 9, 2011, Curry was bumped up to co-anchor. Try not to squirm as Lauer hails the “comfortable fit” she brings to the program (link)

And finally, that promotion also occasioned this Curry career retrospective (link, no embed available).
