Biography

An accomplished television journalist and news anchor with a winning smile, Ann Curry rose to the top of her field reporting on worldwide stories from the World Trade Center bombing on 9/11 to the 2003 war in Iraq. An NBC News correspondent since 1990, Curry served as a news anchor-turned-co-host on "The Today Show" (NBC, 1952- ) and "Dateline NBC" (NBC, 1992- ). Of Japanese-American decent, Curry quickly became a role model for young women in the journalistic community. Notoriously determined and a hard worker, she devoted much of her time to humanitarian reporting and was the first network news anchor to cover the tsunami zone in southeast Asia and the refugee crisis in Kosovo. Also known for landing exclusive interviews, Curry conducted one-on-one interviews with numerous political and entertainment figures, including Lance Armstrong and Angelina Jolie. Curry filled in for Katie Couric on "The Today Show" when Couric stepped down as co-host in 2006 and eventually replaced Meredith Vieira once she left her co-host position in 2011. Unfortunately, Curry was let go from her position on the couch after only one year. Though reactions to Curry's performance was a mixed bag, there was no denying she was force to be reckoned with as an esteemed journalist.
