Ann Curry bids a tearful farewell to Today. But she does get one final dig in:
They’re giving me some fancy new titles, which essentially means that I’m going to get tickets to every big story we want to cover.
Those fancy new titles are: Today Anchor at Large and National and International Correspondent for NBC News. What a mouthful. [Watch her say goodbye here]
There is no tomorrow. USA Today reports that this morning is Ann Curry’s last day on Today.
It’s “going to be a bit of a tough day,” she told USA TODAY in a 40-minute phone interview Wednesday, sounding as though she were fighting back tears. “I’m going to have to tell our viewers. That’s what makes me more emotional than anything. I don’t want to leave them. I love them. And I will really miss them.”
