    I for one am sick and tired of Ann Curry's inability to read/speak on the Today Show. She can't get a paragraph out without messing up.

    I fully admit that I couldn't do that job, but I'm not a TV performer.

    Does she bother anybody else but me?

    She doesn't bother me, but then again I don't watch the show :)

    I'm guessing that expressing such a view in a communication to NBC would be more effective than a posting discussion here. ;):D

    Yes...she fumbles in her deliver...but she's not alone.

    Letterman has made a career despite it.

    Where the hell has Merideth Viera been?

    Over thelast month I think I have seen her on once or twice.

    Bring back Amy Robach to the fill in host position.

    Don't think I've ever watched the Today show and have never heard of Ann Curry.

    So, is she hot? If so, let her stay. If not, boot her.

    I like Ann. It's Couric I could never stand. Personally, I haven't noticed her being that bad, she is also a regular fill in on the evening news when Brian Williams is out.

    If they booted newsreaders for flubbing lines, they'd have to boot about ¾ of them across the country.

    Curry is the 54-year-old mother of two who's job is to be a news person (not "talking head"), a career she has successfully pursued for about 33 years. I don't watch the "Today Show" regularly, but she used to be pretty good at her job. Wilbur, what is happening? Is she distracted, does she need glasses, or is there a brain-stall problem that as she nears 55 she may need to worry about?

    phrelin,
    Yeah, she used to be fine, but she's losing it. She flubs every other story nowadays.

    My favorite flub was when the last American WW1 veteran died a few weeks ago. Ann Curry said; "the last WW2 veteran has died." I pictured a couple of million old guys grabbing their chests, slumping over and moaning...uhhh!

    Pete,
    That's the flub that I noticed that started my disdain for Curry. Since then, she flubs every 30 minutes.

    Her taped reports are fine (certainly because they can retape them till they're correct) - perhaps they should reassign her to that sort of duty.

    You want to see a professional flub lines, and stammer, and get tongue twisted daily, just watch Shepherd Smith on Fox. That man cant talk right to save his life. Its embarrassing.

    I agree - she's the worst interviewer I've ever seen.

    Obviously, to know that, you must be watching. :lol:

    Personally, I like Ann Curry but, as a regular 'Morning Joe' watcher, I don't get to see Ms Curry except when she does intros on Dateline.

    Not one of us is perfect -- I say let's be kind and overlook her flaws. Ann is a good person and is quite watchable, what with her lovely and warm demeanor. Let's vote to keep her on air -- as if we have any say. I'd much rather watch Ann Curry than [not then] those sniping witches on 'The View'.

    Looks like Merideth Viera is leaving the Today Show in September.
