I never really liked Ann Curry on the show, partly because of an interview I saw back in 2007 embedded above. I thought she was judging the kid more than she was trying to understand him and the growing phenomenon of online sharing that would eventually lead to the success of facebook which has over 900 million active users today.
Now that I watch it again, it wasn’t that bad.
Ann Curry gave a teary eyed farewell from the Today show as co-host the week. I feel bad, but she still has a job and now has her own team so I don’t feel that bad. I feel not bad in the same way I feel not bad that Katie Couric left the Today show for the CBS Evening News for 5 years only to come away with a snarky Sarah Palin interview (she’s getting $40 million for a daytime talk show “Katie” with ABC starting in September 2012).
Before you ask, I don’t really like Matt Lauer’s ass either. I’m partial to my sports broadcasters Bob Costas and Jim Lampley.
