Ann Curry to Appear on ‘CBS This Morning’

Ann Curry will return to morning TV for her first television interview since leaving NBC in 2015.

The former “Today” co-anchor is expected to make an appearance on CBS’ “CBS This Morning” on Wednesday. She is expected to be asked questions about the firing of former coworker Matt Lauer as well as “We’ll Meet Again,” a new documentary series she is about to launch on PBS.

Curry left NBC three years after being pushed from NBC’s “Today” morning franchise after a year as co-anchor. Her awkward on-air departure from the program – NBC executives believed she and Lauer lacked on-screen chemistry – is believed to have been in a factor in the rise of ABC’s “Good Morning America,” which eventually surpassed “Today” to become the nation’s most-watched morning program.

Lauer was fired from NBC in late November, with the network citing “inappropriate” behavior in the workplace. He is one of a number of prominent media executives to lose their position in the wake of a surge of interest in sexual harassment and assault in the workplace.

Curry has in recent interviews declined to talk about Lauer, but has been open to talking about the movement known as #MeToo, in which women are speaking about mistreatment by powerful men.
