After a week of public speculation about her future on “Today,” co-host Ann Curry tearfully bid farewell to the NBC program at the close of this morning’s broadcast.
Curry has been on “Today” for 15 years, spending 14 years as newsreader and the last year as co-host.
“After all of these years, I don’t even know if I can sleep in anymore. I don’t even know if I can, but I know that whatever time I wake up, I know I’ll be missing you,” Curry said. “For all of you who saw me as a groundbreaker, I’m sorry I couldn’t carry the ball over the finish line, but I sure did try.”
TVNewser has details of Curry’s new role at NBC, as well as video of her goodbye.
