Curry Stops Kilimanjaro Climb

Nov 21, 2008  •  Post A Comment

The “Today” show’s Ann Curry called off her climb of Mount Kilimanjaro about 3,000 feet short of the summit, the Associated Press reports. Curry and her five-person team from NBC struggled with the thin air and cold weather. “Here’s the bottom line: I just did not want to live with any one of us having any kind of serious injury just to get us live from the top of this mountain. It just wasn’t worth it,” Curry said.

  1. Bravo, Ann! Ratings be damned! Safety and health is more important than ratings!!!!

  2. hahahahahahahahahahahahahaha!

  3. Smart! Never second guess your decision. As a member of a live morning show, I’ve come within a whisper of dying, twice. All because of the rush to broadcast. No one will remember or care that you stopped short. Television doesn’t love you back like you think it should.

  4. Nice to laugh about cold stopping ANOTHER loony from making a trek to “prove” global warming!
