You let a class act go. She was the heart and soul of your show. Today i start watching Good Morning America. I'll check in when she is on with her special journalist assignments.

Its a shame that they got rid of Ann . She's class act. Excellent journalist. Today show can't expect to be #1 all the time . & its not her fault. Get rid of matt. I have watch the today show for more than15 yrs. Now that Ann is gone I'm jumping ship.

Well, that's all folks! After two decades of watching the Today show they finally lost me and my family as loyal viewers.
When Ann took her rightful place next to Matt I thought it was about time! She is a wonderful person who seems to really care. She has a way about her that no one else does and deserves to be the co-anchor on the Today show. If the ratings fell it had to do with the fluff they have chosen to cover, not Ann.
So sad, they finally got it right, then they screwed it up.

I am done watching the Today Show until you folks dump Matt Lauer, Send him off on one of those "where In The World is Matt Lauer?" and then realize no one cares where he is, and leave him there. Reinstating Ann Curry as lead host and anchor would also win me back. Until then, Good Morning, America!

I agree 110%!!! Matt has worn out his welcome & appears to have a big ego that's getting in the way. I too am watching Good Morning America since the let Ann go and will continue to do every morning. I hope NBC's ratings drop to an all time low....maybe then they'll get the hint.

It is really sad when we do not look at who we really are. Matt Lauer is the reason the show has lost rating. Al need to go also. I will follow Ann Curry and even before this happen I was watching GMA. GOD WILL CORRECT ALL WRONG DONE TO HIS PEOPLE.

I really enjoy the Today Show and although I liked Ann Curry she was too stiff for the cast. Yes, the Today Show delivers some serious news storys but Al, Matt, Savanna, Star, Donny D and etc could all be serious yet witty, sarcastic and funny on the dime. Ann was often left stammering for comebacks and struggling to keep up with the one liners and zingers. She actually needs her own show tackling tough, hard nose issues, which it sounds as if she has been given that. It's difficult when you are given the option of "take this position" or else, but the show recognizes she is a class act and gave her an option. Most of us don't get one. This is just the nature of the biz, if the show is canceled then no one eats. Therefore, the perceived weakest link is usually sacrificed for the security of all others. With that being said, Wish you the best Ann! Now leave the cotton candy to the rest and go be the journalist that everyone wishes they were!
