‘Today’ Outdone By ‘GMA’s Tender Farewell To Ann Curry? — VIDEO

NBC is already looking like the bad guy in the Anne Curry Today Removal situation. Though there’s no explicit mention of why Curry is being repurposed into a new role at NBC News after 14 years on Today, her fate is being compared to former The Tonight Show host Conan O’Brien’s rude removal from the late night lineup. That’s why this sugary sweet reaction from Today competitor Good Morning America has to sting just a little. 

Hosts Robin Roberts and George Stephanopoulos opened the conversation about Curry, offering her well wishes as she transitions from the show she so tearfully left early today. And while Curry’s co-anchors Al Roker and Matt Lauer palled around with her, remembering the good ol’ days as she said her final words, there was a palpable sense of awkwardness. Gone is that sense in GMA‘s short message and instead, we find Roberts’ sincere commendation of her fellow journalist and anchor as well as GMA personality Amy Robach who called Curry “the heart and soul of [NBC].” 
So now we open it up to you. Did Today’s fierce competitor say a heartier farewell to the now former anchor of Today? Or did they simply do the nice thing by singing Curry’s praises?

Anne Curry

Celebrity Editor Kelsea Stahler was born in a pile of dirt. Okay, she was actually born in an old Naval hospital in San Diego, which then became a pile of dirt and remained as such for a number of years before becoming a parking lot perfectly sized for circus tents, and finally a museum. She eventually left San Diego to attend New York University, where she studied Journalism and English literature — two less-than profitable liberal arts degrees about which guidance counselors warned her. Against all odds, she now resides in Brooklyn, where she fights the constant fear that the locals will soon discover she isn’t quite cool enough to live there, and makes a living writing absurd, pop culture features about Batman, zombies, vampires, funny people, and Ron Swanson.
