In another blow to semi-intelligent news coverage, Anne Curry has been forced out of the “Today” show, mostly because she didn’t have the bubbly personality necessary for morning television, or the ability to seamlessly transition from hard news stories to fluffy human interest and celebrity stories. She is a good journalist; she just isn’t a very good morning show host.
For whatever reason, she — or the “Today” show — decided to announce her departure today, during a period in which everyone else was focused on the Supreme Court decision. Most people probably missed her tearful farewell. I gotta admit, it was a little heart-breaky.
Anne Curry will be replaced by Savannah Guthrie.
