Daily Mail announced on Tuesday that NBC is already considering several candidates for the replacement of Ann Curry on the “Today” show. Hoda Kotb is the first choice they have considered so far because her style seems more appropriate for the morning broadcast.
Despite fans’ attempt to prevent Ann Curry from getting replaced, new rumors have surfaced about the anchorwoman that could take her place. Rumor has it that NBC would like to start collaborating with Hoda Kotb because she is better prepared for the show, but there are other options, as well.
The news hasn’t been confirmed, yet, but close sources claim that NBC considers Kotb to be the perfect choice for “Today”. The anchorwoman is funny enough to keep the viewers entertained and is, nevertheless, endowed with sufficient journalistic background to perfectly accomplish her duties. In addition, Kotb will get along very well with Matt Lauer who is famous for his goofy behavior.
Ann Curry is currently negotiating her departure through her legal representatives, so she didn’t release any statement in relation to the rumor. For those who are not familiar with the subject, Ann Curry has been the co-anchor of the “Today Show” for more than a year. She was dismissed from her position because the ratings of the show have dropped significantly since her arrival.
Many speculations have also been made about a possible misunderstanding between Curry and her colleague, Matt Lauer. According to them, the two TV hosts are very different from one another and this has prevented them from working well together.
Although figures point to the fact that Ann Curry is responsible for the ratings decrease, fans were devastated when they first heard that the anchorwoman was going to be replaced. They even started an online petition to convince NBC to bring her back on the “Today Show”. NBC’s decision will be communicated when negotiations are over, but there are many chances for Curry to continue working for them on another position.
