Ann Curry Firing to Cost The Today Show Millions

by at . Comments

If/when Ann Curry gets fired from Today, it will cost NBC a pretty penny.

Actually, many pretty pennies. More pretty pennies than a celebrity gossip website knows how to count.

Network insiders tell TMZ that Curry is definitely a goner next week, and that the ousting will cost NBC close to $30 million because the co-host signed a long-term contract in 2011 that guarantees her $10 million/year.

That number ought to soften the blow, huh?

Curry is also rumored to become a foreign correspondent for NBC News, a capacity that will involve... who cares?!? $30 million?!? YEESH!

Maybe it was Ann Curry; maybe it was a million other things. What strikes me is that this public thing stinks. Either keep her or let her go, but why make her squirm? What's the upside of all this negativity? Just askin' . . .
