NBC just will NOT give ex-anchor Ann Curry a break!
A Today show insider says that after being pushed out of her job and replaced by a "more ratings friendly" anchor, the network made Ann some lofty promises — none of which are panning out.
Our source says:
"Ann was promised a much bigger role in covering the Olympics when she was demoted from being a co-host of the Today show."
Apparently, Ann was told she would cover the opening ceremony on the ground with Matt Lauer & Meredith Viera. Clearly that didn't happen!
"For reasons not revealed to Ann," the former co-host got the boot … again.
Now, the "devastated" ex-anchor has to settle for a messily couple of days of coverage, as the source continues:
"Ann will be appearing on the Today show either Thursday or Friday this week and will be contributing to coverage of the closing ceremonies next Sunday."
Oh, well, isn't that generous of them?? LOL!
At least Ann can rest easy knowing the horrible ratings and reviews Today's snooze-worthy coverage of the Olympic games have received has absolutely NOTHING to do with her!
