Ann Curry Is Saying Goodbye to ‘Today’

UPDATE: Ann Curry announced her Today exit on-air Thursday. Click here for more details.

Ann Curry is expected to make a big announcement Thursday morning: She will be stepping down from her post as Today show co-host. It’s “going to be a bit of a tough day,” she told USA TODAY Wednesday. “I’m going to have to tell our viewers. That’s what makes me more emotional than anything. I don’t want to leave them. I love them. And I will really miss them.”


While Curry will be leaving Today, she won’t be exiting the NBC family. Her new multi-year contract with the network places her in front of a seven-person news team that will cover the biggest stories developing around the world. Curry’s reports will be featured on NBC Nightly News, Dateline, Rock Center, and Today — and, she will occasionally fill in as an anchor for the Nightly News and other segments.

News Editor Lindsey DiMattina started her career writing for a series of interior design magazines in South Florida, but moved to NYC on a whim. She dabbled in fashion PR, then took a job doing celebrity reporting. For three years, she broke news about Kim Kardashian, Mariah Carey, Snooki, Bachelor/Bachelorette winners, Teen Moms, and many more. In her spare time, you can find her rocking out to Sugarland or Lil Jon and walking her dog Bene Hendrix (named after the Jimi Hendrix). She never misses an episode of “The Borgias,” “Boardwalk Empire,” or “Game of Thrones."
