Ann Curry, who exited NBC’s “Today” show in 2012, has her sights set on a return to network television, with The New York Post’s Page Six reporting that she has had “informal talks” with execs at CBS about a possible co-anchor spot on “CBS This Morning.”
What Curry really wants is the “CBS Evening News” job, while another possibility would be a correspondent’s position with “60 Minutes,” according to the report, which cites a source close to Curry.
“Curry is putting her hand up at the Tiffany Network as newly minted CBS News President Susan Zirinsky considers a shake-up of anchors at the network’s morning and evening news shows, sources said,” The Post reports, noting that her departure from “Today” generated headlines a few years back.
“Curry, whose exit from the ‘Today’ show was marred by controversy amid rumors that since-disgraced co-host Matt Lauer pushed her out, is not keen to return to morning TV, sources said. She is ‘interested in something at “60 Minutes” or the “Evening News,”‘ one person said,” The Post reports, noting: “It could not be determined if Curry is in the running at either show.”
As we have reported recently, CBS appears to be considering moving “CBS This Morning” co-host Norah O’Donnell into Jeff Glor’s anchor chair at “CBS Evening News.”
