Hoda Kotb to Replace Ann Curry on Today?

Ann Curry is nearly out.

Might Hoda Kotb be in?

With The Today Show on the verge of an anchor change, and with Meredith Vieira having turned down an offer to return, insiders tell Radar Online that Kotb may be getting the replacement call.

Hoda Kotb Picture

“Hoda scores off the charts in focus groups, and the audience can relate to her,” says the source of The Today Show's fourth hour co-host.

The long-running program is desperate to hold off Good Morning America, which has overtaken it in the ratings this spring. But would Kathie Lee's wine-drinking cohort really be the answer? Vote now:

Do you want to see Hoda Kotb replace Ann Curry?

moment, but Ann has made even them pause for several seconds, collectively wondering WTF is wrong with this woman. She doesn't know how to banter. She flubs almost every line, and for all the people who keep talking about her years of experience, I want to ask, why then is she more awkward on camera than someone who's just out of journalism school? For whatever reason, she just doesn't work well in this role. Reporting out in the field seems to be more her forte, and this is where she should be.

Actually, Ann Curry don't have the brain power..Meredith Viera has!(She looks great, but that's about it!) I hope Regis does the show with Kathie Lee(that Hoda did..and knock off the booze and cooking segments). That would be great!!

I AGREE MATT LAUER SHOULD BE THE ONE TO LEAVE. SOME PEOPLE DONT CARE FOR HIS MORALS. ANN CURRY SHOULD HAVE BEEN THE ONE TO REPLACE KATIE. TODAY HAS THE BEST SHOW OF THE MORNING. KEEP ANN AND REPLACE MATT WITH NATALIE MORALES. I DONT LOOK FORWARD TO WATCHING G.M.A. EVEN AS GREAT AS THEY ARE. CBS HAS ALREADY LOST MY VIEWING WHEN THEY CHANGED THEIR MORNING CREW LAST YEAR. KEEP ANN AND REPLACE MATT!

What was wrong with Ann? I remember when Matt first got the job. Handsome, and with hair. It started to thin a bit, and he shaved it all off. Gross. His nose is in the air. Friends with Brian Gumbel. Dump Matt.

NBC needs to have their head examined! Matt is the one that needs to
go - he is so full of himself. If Hoda replaces Ann Curry it will be
the last time I watch the Today show. Hoda and Kathy are a joke on TV.
Talking about themselves all the time and the drinking - very poor taste. Wake UP NBC!

I'm with those who are unhappy to see Ann go and the fact that Matt had a hand in her leaving, makes me never want to watch the show again...but here's a thought..how about letting Matt go, and keeping Ann?

I have loved watching the "TODAY" show for many years. I am saddened to read this gossip. Can this really be true? I won't believe it until I hear it from Ann Curry herself. I love her! ARIGATO MS CURRY!

I bet NBC wishes Amy Robach had not left for ABC. She was a breath of fresh air. I miss her on Sat. Today show. I will watch her on ABC!
