In the wake of the Colorado shooting, Ann Curry has been tapped to co-anchor  "Today" this weekend along with Savannah Guthrie ... the woman who replaced her as co-host of "Today" earlier this month.

According to NBC, Curry and Guthrie will be traveling to Aurora, CO to provide "special coverage" of the massacre.

Matt Lauer will not be making the trip.

Curry's final day hosting "Today" came on June 28, after weeks of speculation about her ousting. Guthrie was named her official replacement the next day and took her first official turn next to "Today" fixture Matt Lauer on July 9.

Ann's got a sweet spirit, this is perfect...Been listening to talk radio and this insensitive POS c u n t reporter was asking the father of the deceased little6 yr old girl "so, is she dead?" like she was asking for the time...then I heard some other reports comparing the killer's "calm" to a bride being crazy on her wedding day - like really?

NBC why are you doing this to Ann? Matt chewed her up and spit her out, and now she has to appear with the biotch that got her seat? are you even kidding me? Why not send Matt Lauer? Its because he is a spineless wimp? and he used to be cute and he isn't even cute anymore

OBVIOUS, AFTER NBC PUBLICLY HUMILIATED ANN CURRY, they are now trying to "make nice" by pairing her with Guthrie to try and elevate Guthrie to win back viewers. WON'T WORK!!! Ann Curry continues to demonstrate, at least visibly, pride, dignity, charm, class , without hostility toward all the NBC backstabbers, especially, Matt Lauer who gave her that, now famous, " Kiss of Death" and Ann Curry, unlike the others, being a LADY of QUALITY, smiled through perhaps one of her most hurtful experiences, ever, since joining the TODAY family. I, like throngs of Ann curry admirers, have kept my commitment not to watch TODAY and moved on to ABC and CBS. It has been proven to me that NBC , through their own fault, have opened the doors to ABC and CBS. Excellent choices!!!

Either they're hoping she'll get upset and quit (don't do it, Ann, you're a professional), or they want to see the two of them side by side to compare. My money's on Ann kicking the bimbo's azz. Do a bang up job, Ann! Pulling for you!

Not sure Ann has the ability to say no to the assignment. She's still under a $1M+ contract. I think she's has take what they assign to her. Is that right Harvey?

Matt Lauer sucks and knows that Ann Curry can't stand his 2-face ass! Matt Lauer needs to be fired. Today show is desperate because their rating have fallen. Continue to boycott this lousy show! Ann would want it like that, LOL...

NBC should dump Lauer's sorry a-s, the ratings show that since he forced Ann's firing his popularity and that of TODAY has dropped. Bring Ann back and fire Matt.
