Savannah Guthrie or Ann Curry: Who Would You Rather... Watch?

by at . Comments

Ann Curry will be fired from The Today Show any moment now.

So reports TMZ, which claims the anchor and the NBC morning program are simply haggling over contract details.

Curry is owed $20 million over the next two years and reportedly wants to pocket that dough and take her walking papers, while the network wants to give her half that amount and stick her as a foreign correspondent.

Either way, Savannah Guthrie has already struck a deal with Today and will take over for Curry as soon as she leaves, which prompts the obvious question: Which reporter would you rather... watch?

And the Winner is?

Here Today, gone tomorrow? Which host would you rather tune in to watch, Ann Curry or Savannah Guthrie? View Poll ยป

NBC REALLY BLEW IT firing Ann Curry. The show is old and tired with Lauer and Roker. To blame the rating loss on Curry is absurd. I was a 40 year plus loyal viewer of Today..until Today. No more. Moving over to the most popular show GMA. Protests to NBC, Phil Griffin and the idiot producer who did this fell on deaf ears. It is Lauer, Roker and the producer who should have been fired with Willie Geist replacing Lauer to sit with Curry. After all, the viewers should know...right??? Nope, not with NBC, it is the advertisers. But, Wrong...NBC was plain wrong and they will pay. Guthrie???OMG what is the matters with the fools at NBC. She is a NOBODY!!! But was looking like a peacock today.

This is a huge mistake. Ann brought such professionalism to the show, she gave it an upper edge that a normal morning show. She's a superstar. Her chemistry with the public, her co-hosts and the people she interviews is pleasant, never boring. You actually love to watch and hear how she gets to places in interviews that others can't without it being awkward. She never makes it awkward. She appears sincere, smart, informed and full of polish. Wow, I wish and pray for another amazing door to open for her. Her talent must NOT be wasted. Hire her BACK! It isn't to late. GO FOR IT! She's not the Ratings problem. She will carry you for years to come. I've been watching your show for years. Ann was and is "your girl" and then some!

All i can say is "oh my gosh" now I have seen it all. They fired the wrong person. Matt is the one that needs to go !! I stopped watching a few years back just because of Matt . He has lost his talent and has become so very boring. My husband has watched this program because of Ann Curry ! Her personality and professionalism was keeping the show going. Now you have really flopped. Without Ann you need a miracle for success.

Anne Curry was the major draw for me on the Today Show. NBC has treated her shabbily by blaming her for falling ratings. I will no longer be watching this program.

Okay, here's the thing...Ann Curry is kind of irritating. I have been watching the Today show for many years. She often stutters and stammers and I am kind of relieved to see her go. Several years ago she was interviewing Bindi Irwin not long after her father, Steve, died. They were talking about Bindi's kids' show, and when the little girl mentioned her father and how he would have loved to see her follow in his footsteps in response to Curry's question, Curry said to her that they weren't talking about her dad they were talking about Bindi, it was really shocking. Needless to say, I don't think the Irwins have been on the Today show since. I respect her as a journalist but she is not a good reporter. I figured she would improve over the years but she didn't. It always seemed to me that she was kind of out of her league and she should have never been promoted in the first place. Besides, who would feel sorry for someone who is leaving with ten million dollars. Really?

I am so appalled at NBC for the way Anne Curry was treated and removed so quickly. I have been a veiwer of the Today Show for years and have decided to move on especially if Savannah Guthrie takes Anne'a spot. There is no magic when Savannah is on camera. Good luck with your ratings now!

After so many years of watching the Today show I will also stop watching.
I agree that Merideth ruined the ratings not Ann Curry.
NBC you should be ashamed at the way you treated Ann after 15 years of
loyalty to your company.

I think Matt should be fired. He is arrogant and has no personality

I started taping the Today Show the minute Savannah was moved from a political show with Chuck Todd. They were great together and Savannah is soooooo beautiful and smart that she and Matt will get along very well. She could use some new clothes and shoes to match to make it interesting for the women to check in every day, to see what she is wearing and what she has to say! I'm shocked that she is 40. She looks 25. Ann was older looking and didn't look very well in the gobs of colorful clothes she has been wearing lately. Much too young for her to be wearing. She was a great reporter and should never have left that position. Sounds like she is going back where she will be fabulous and it won't matter what she wears.
