I’ve been watching pretty closely the firing of NBC Today Show co-anchor Ann Curry, and I literally feel her pain. I know what it’s like to sit in that seat, the seat that you have worked your entire career to ascend to and then have it yanked out from under you. I know what it’s like to have the music stopped, everyone had a space except you, odd man out.
My situation was different from Curry’s, but in many ways the same. I co-hosted a network morning news program. I know what it’s like to have people who don’t know you discuss you and your future as if they had stake in the outcome. I know what it’s like to have to continue going into work with that elephant in the room. And I know that there is a wonderfully fulfilling life on the other end of all this crap.
So I got to thinking about the past six years or so and came up with these 10 things I learned from being fired.
