I will still be part of the ‘Today’ show family but I’m gonna have a new timeline, a new role. This is not as I expected to ever leave this couch after 15 years but I am so grateful. Especially to all of you who watch because Matt and I and everyone who sits on this couch, we often call ourselves a family but you are the real ‘Today’ show family.
You are why I have ventured into dangerous places and interviewed dictators and jumped off of planes and off of bridges and climbed mountains and landed in the South Pole and convince the Dalai Lama to come live in our studio. I have loved you and I have wanted to give you the world, and I still do.

OMG. Ann Curry is out at the Today Show, according to reports from the New York Times. “[Matt Lauer] and Ms. Curry noticeably lack the kind of on-camera rapport that Mr. Lauer had with Ms. Vieira and, before her, Katie Couric,” writes NYT media reporter Brian Stelter. NBC News’ Savannah Guthrie’s name is being mentioned most as a possible co-host replacement, Stelter tweeted.

Ann Curry on why you should never Google drunk: You could end up confusing Wheaton College in Norton, Mass. with Wheaton College in Wheaton, Ill. And you might be giving a commencement speech to one of them.
