Ann Curry

NBC's $10 MILLION MISTAKE

6/22/2012 12:20 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Ann Curry $$$.
Ann Curry will get her walking papers from the "Today" show next week, and NBC will pay dearly for its blunder -- because network sources tell us she's under a contract that guarantees her $10 million a year.

Our sources tell us Ann signed a new contract almost a year ago to the day, when she took over as co-anchor of "Today." Under the deal, Ann gets a cool $10 mil, and it's a long-term contract.  We're told she's guaranteed that amount for 3 years.

Network sources tell us ... the likely scenario is that Ann will become a foreign correspondent for NBC News.

Short story ... she'll be the first foreign correspondent who will rake in an amount equal to the gross national product of some of the countries she will cover.

Good for her! But if I were Ann, I'd just take the $10 million per year, retire to a nice, quiet tropical island, sip mai tais all day long, and never have another financial worry in the world.

They should get rid of that Kathie Lee especially after she asked that man how his wife is even though his wife passed away 2 years ago!

Most of the network news people make millions, this is not surprising.

Well at least she'll get some $$$ from the raw deal she got. She deserves much better! I don't care for Savannah Guthrie at all!

I wonder if they'll just hold the exit door open for her like they did Campbell Brown. One day she was there...the next day she wasn't.

She is a terrible interviewer. Did you see the interview with Brad Pitt? So embarrassing. She was like a school girl with her crush.

Sadly, it never seems to occur to them that it's their CONTENT that sucks, not Ann.

Good for her. If they want to pay $30,000,000 just to make Matt Lauer feel like he has chemistry, tough on them. I think it is funny really. She might be boring but the whole show is boring so she is mayb even more real. I hate the people with the fake over the top personalities, who are always smiling and trying to be the center of attention. She is kind of laid back and reserved.

They already insulted Meredith by firing her I guess, so she will just take it easy on The View. Maybe they think they can just push women around like lawn furniture, but these ladies are getting the jobs and money they wanted.


Not everybody is a big flirt or tries to act like a sexpot for attention. Maybe they just don't like her conservative style or unassuming kind of manner.
