” Today” Executive Producer Jim Bell says is was his call to replace Ann Curry on the Today Show. I DON’T BELIEVE IT! by Robby LeBlanc
If that is the truth, we now know who the real JERK at the Today Show is, Jim Bell! Maybe he will even take credit for the way they rudley, disrepsectfully and EXTREMELY unprofessionally fired her from the position as co-host on the Today Show.
Taking the HEAT off Matt Lauer right now is probably a good thing because almost EVERY news organization that has reported about it said that it was Matt Lauer that got Ann Curry fired as co-host of the Today show back in June 2012. Now for Jim Bell to step forward and take the SWORD! WOW! What a hero! NOT!
Does anyone really believe this CRAP!
After Matt Lauer was dragged through the dirt… After he has been accused of being repsonsble for getting Ann Curry fired. After Ann Curry had her first interview back on air, I think during the Olympics, and you could see how they really MISSED each other, (NOT!).
It takes a couragous and confident man to step forward and say I had Ann Currty Fired.
By Jim Bell not stepping forward sooner you watched Matt get dragged through the media dump, not for a few days oe weeks, but MONTHS! Maybe that was Jim Bell’s intention anyway, to kick MAtt’ Lauer’s butt so he shows Matt knows who is boss here.Is this the kind of guy you want to work for???Hmmm.
I read other reports that the NBC exec’s didn’t like a dress Ann curry was wearing and that’s why they fired her. It that was a REALL reason, the execs at NBC have more problems than the NFL’s replacement REFEREE’S!
Quote from the New York Times from Today Show Executive Producer Jim Bell; “Ms. Curry is now in the role she is naturally suited for.”
I’ve got some questions I’d LOVE to know the answers too:
– How does Ann Curry feel about this quote?
– Does Ann curry still feel like she is part of that LOVING MBC family?
– Does Ann Curry feel like she was thrown under the bus!
– If Matt didn’t want Ann out, why didn’t he publicly fight for her?
– Why didn’t Matt Lauer speak up if it wasn”t truly his decision?
We will probably never know the answer to these questions, but I’d sure like to know.
What NBC REALLY FAILS to understand is… Ann Curry is a TRUSTED voice in the world, not just the Unirted States. As a journalist and TV personality, people trust her. She is compassionate,smart, engaging and beautiful to look at. There I said it, she’s beautiful. Ann Curry is the complete TV package.
Hey, I like Savanah Guthrie, but I don’t like her in the co-host position. Then I recently saw that Piers Morgan from CNN wanted to interview the Today Show folks and they turned it down! Were they afraid that Piers was going to ask the question that ALL of america wants to know about WHY Ann Curry was fired???
Jim Bell, if it was really his decision to have Ann Curry fired, he could’ve had this nipped in the bud months ago. But No, they decided to let MATT LAUER take the back lash for it. With freinds like this, who needs enemies.
Does anyone REALLY believe that?
I’d like to hear from Ann Curry. Heck, I’d LOVE to interview her! Ann, if you are reading, call me! I’d LOVE to do a Telephone interview with you and get your side of the story! If Ann Curry is REALLY happy doing these out of the country bits that no knows about becauwse NBC won’t tell people that Ann is doing something…If Ann is happy great.
To Recopy The Quote From Above:
Quote from the New York Times from Today Show Executive Producer Jim Bell; Ms. Curry is now “in the role she is naturally suited for.”
Does Ann believe this once in a while news bits they throw her are better suited for her VERSUS being on air 5 days a week??? NBC is to blind and are to full of ego to admit they made a HORRIBLE mistake. They NOW REALIAZE Ann Curry was LOVED and is Still LOVED by the public. I don’t think they know what to do.
If NBC Today Show asked me, I’d say be HONEST and tell the people what really happend. If they, “NBC Today Show” wants to capture credibility again, it must start with coming clean…
Ann Curry is still greatly missed on TV. Let’s hope NBC allows Ann Curry to share her voice and tell ther people how she is doing. How she feels? Is she happy doing these one off bits VS 5 days on the Today Show.
I’d like to see Ann have the option to do TV somewhere else is she so desires. NBC isn’t going to use her and people still want to see her, me included. I want to see her EVERYDAY day, not once every 5 weeks!
Keep Being Brilliant Ann Curry!
