Ann Curry BANNED From Working Sochi Olympics For NBC!

ann curry not allowed to report on sochi olympics

Ann Curry has had plenty of time to separate herself from the ugly ending that went down at the Today show and has since landed on her feet, but it appears there's still some bad blood brewing between her and NBC!!

Jim Bell, the network producer who allegedly played a big role in having the beleaguered reporter fired, is also serving as the executive producer of the Sochi Olympics.

Well, apparently he wanted to make sure Ann was nowhere near the winter games despite her previous experience working on the olympics!

An inside source reveals:

"There was no way Jim was going to allow Ann to do any reporting from Sochi for the Winter Olympics. He thought she would be huge distraction and a liability to NBC. It’s no secret that Jim and Ann do not get along. Ann was disappointed not to go to Sochi because she has been a staple in past Olympic coverage on NBC."

Wow! She just can't get a break, can she?

While Ann was understandably disappointed about not making it to Sochi, sources say there isn't too much bitterness between her and the network as she's still be able to find tons of work!

Although we have to admit, we can't see how she'd be anymore distracting than Bob Costas' eye infection!!

    NBC awesome plan, your rating are still tanking so keep doing what your doing. It makes you look like untrustworthy assholes and people don't want their news from those types of people.

    The show is not tanking. Long time viewer and their show is better than ever. But for real if Al Roker ever retires it won't be pretty. I for one wish people would let her go. She is history gone past tense!

    Don't watch NBC ever since they were going to pay Casey Anthony for an interview.

    Ann Curry would be a whole lot better than Meredith Veira. Meredith, Ms. Death Warmed Over, needs to retire and NBC needs to find a Katie Nolan or Georgie Thompson to fill in for Costas.

    The only reason I watch NBC is the Olympic coverage and one other show we enjoy …even your local station KARE, MN is a joke!!!!!!……..
    When NBC hammered Ann Curry from the Today Show, that was the last of my viewing…and you still hammer the poor lady……what is it with you people ????
    You need to revamp ..Matt Lauer and Al Roeker need to be the first on your list of PINK Slips….they are for sure the worst !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Kudos to Jimmy Fallon…He will make the Tonight Show like nothing Leno could ever do….Again, I am NOT a lover of NBC but this guy has a chance to change things..
    Maybe there's hope for Ann Curry and all the others that have been kicked in the ass so many times !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Love Ann Curry — and much prefer her to Meredith V. and Samantha G. - Meredith was always droll to me - never saw the fascination other than that Matt was enamored by her -and for her to be at this year's Olympics — Ugh — NBC will never wake up — their agenda has been so off in so many respects - after Ann I actually switched to Good Morning America whom I never had an interest in and where they are a bit sappy
    and overdone with their constant admiration of each other -
    — to the point of nausea - I'd rather watch them then NBC. and If nothing
    else, ABC Good Morning America has loyalty.
    And Kathy Lee - really? Her ego is so huge, it engulfs you to the point
    of a smothering! Revamp NBC - Revamp — and there are not only Young
    people watching TV — Jay Leno will be missed as well even though Jimmy
    Fallon is great.
