Ann Curry to NBC: Let Me Leave!

by at . Comments

Ann Curry has already been screwed over once by NBC.

Now she's determined for it not to happen again.

With CNN reportedly wooing the anchor, sources tell Radar Online that Curry wants out of her NBC contract. Big time.

"She has formally asked her attorney to explore exit options from the network," the Curry insider claims. "However, NBC bosses have indicated they are unwilling to release Ann from the contract. If Ann were to just quit, there is a non-compete clause, which would prohibit her from working for another news outlet for two years."

Because Curry was demoted from The Today Show, she believes NBC breached the terms of her deal and she ought to be released.

The CNN gig is especially attractive to the reporter because former NBC boss Jeff Zucker is now in charge there. He wants her to lead a program at 8 p.m. every night.
