“Good Morning America” made mention of the news “across town” at the “Today” show: Ann Curry’s emotional farewell to the show.
“Our friend and colleague Ann Curry just announced that she will be taking a big new role at NBC where she’s going to be covering the stories she cares about most,” said George Stephanopoulos.
“I know she is very emotional right now, she loves the people there and as you said will continue on at NBC News,” said Robin Roberts.
Recent ABC transplant Amy Robach added, “There is no one better than Ann. She is the heart and soul of that network and I wish her the very best.” Robach was anchor of “Weekend Today” for several years and joined ABC News last month.
“GMA” broke “Today’s” 16-year winning streak in April, and the two shows have been in a back-and-forth battle for first place since.
