It’s looking more and more likely as if Ann Curry is on her way out of Today.
According to The New York Times, the co-host – who took over for Meredith Viera about a year ago – would essentially be the scapegoat for the long-running NBC program, which was topped in the ratings by ABC’s Good Morning America for the first time in years this spring.
It’s unclear if Curry would be removed completely from the show or moved to a different role, but newspaper sources say discussions are ongoing and a decision is expected to be reached prior to NBC’s coverage of the Summer Olympics in late July.
If the ax does come down on Curry, Savannah Guthrie is expected to replace her.
Matt Lauer, meanwhile, recently renewed his contract and won’t be going anywhere for awhile.
