Ann Curry


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

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.

Big mistake.

Ann Curry has more class in her pinky than Matt Lauer has in his entire body. Matt has become very boring, attacks guest verbally and is full of himself. Ann is class, she has warmth and comes off as a very caring person. NBC is making one huge mistake letting her go. Best of everything life has to offer Ann.

AFTER NBC SNEAKED MEREDITH V. through the back door by announcing her as a 'LEGEND,'' it became apparent that she would be seated next to Matt Lauer after she returns from covering the Olympic games. QUESTION: Perhaps I missed it, but, how does NBC qualify Meredith Vieira as a, "LEGEND?" Time for some answers, NBC !!!

I do not consider Ann Curry a mistake. She is one of the reasons I watch religiously every morning!

How can you at NBC be so cruel. You need to replace Matt Lauer and Kathie Lee than Ann Curry. privately without all the negativity. The ratings are the fault of NBC not Ann Curry. You cut people off and this, we only have a few seconds left all the time. It is distasteful and that is why I don't watch you anymore. For shame on you.

Why is being classy, smart, and compassionate "Not enough?" Because the public expects dumbed down trivial entertainment instead of real news in the AM. I hope she finds a niche with a serious news program where she will shine and be appreciated. Personally, this finishes me with TODAY and with Matt.

Ann is a very touchy, feely interviewer and she makes people feel uncomfortable. Matt Lauer has recently jumped the shark. He knows this. Savannah is too cute for her own good. She is very intelligent and I, as a women, appreciate her.

10 Million dollar mistake? I think NOT! The only mistake being made here are the Executives/Producers directing the format these anchors have to work with. Honestly, do you think interviewing the only survivor of a horrible fire is what we want to hear? Stop with the Walmart/Esquire reporting style and try something intellegent as Sunday Morning News CBS! Ann has it, you just havent figured it out yet!

The Today show was a favorite of mine until someone decided to give Ann Curry more air time as early as 2004 I called NBC and left a message complaining bitterly about her interview style.Nobody returned my call and I have not watched the today show since.Perhaps NBC should listen to their viewers more often...

All of you are complaining about Matt being a pain in the ***, but yet people ARE still watching them, beings that the show remains at #1 for all these years. If you people want to REALLY get rid of Matt, STOP WATCHING THE SHOW!!!!
