The Hollywood Reporter‘s Marisa Guthrie reports on what could be next for Ann Curry, who has a window in her NBC News contract that opens in early 2014:
Curry’s representative, Washington lawyer Robert Barnett, has made NBC News’ competitors, including CBS News, aware she will be available. (He declined comment.) A CBS News executive tells THR he respects Curry’s journalistic chops but that there really isn’t a place for her at that division. Sources say Curry, 57, also has not had talks with CNN Worldwide president Jeff Zucker, her former Today producer. Al Jazeera America, the Qatar emirate-backed network that launched in August and has struggled to lure viewers, did express interest in Curry this year when executives reached out to numerous anchors and producers to gauge availability … But sources there say there are no current discussions with Curry or her reps.
