Is Ann Curry Being Fired? 5 Choices That Are Not The Best Fit For Her ReplacementDevan McGuinness
The news has been a flutter lately with rumours of the Today show anchor Ann Curry speculated to soon be left go from the show. It really is no surprise that there are more changes being made to the show in efforts to win back ratings from the ultra-popular Good Morning America.
Ann joined the show 12 months ago and has made it no secret that she considers it her “dream job”. Despite her clear passion for the job, it’s not known whether her dream job will continue to be hers.
Running with these rumours are all the speculations over who will replace the coveted position. Earlier, Sunny shared her 5 picks on who should join the Today show — with the main front-runner in the media speculated to be Savannah Guthrie.
While many will undoubtedly want this position, there are a few who just may not be the best fit. Click through to find out who we think will not be the best choices for her replacement and why:
Kathy Lee Gifford 1 of 5Kathy is no stranger to the Today Show. She's currently co-hosting the 4th hour of the show and she's very entertaining.
Why shouldn't she replace Ann? She has already been a replacement for Ann in 2008. Coming in to co-host the position she's in now when Ann left. It's time for Kathy to shine on her own.
Amy Robach 2 of 5We have all known Amy for a long time -- she was a co-host of the Today Show since 2007.
Why shouldn't she replace Ann? Just a few months ago in May, Amy announced that she was leaving the show after 9 years and leaving the network. She spoke tearfully as she left her Today Show family, it may be painful for her to go back.
Julie Chen 3 of 5Julie Chen is everywhere and certainly is loved by an audience. She is a co-host on The Talk and hosts the summer hit Big Brother.
Why shouldn't she replace Ann? With everything that is already on her plate and her full-schedule, I can't imagine her taking on anything else without quickly getting burnt out.
Kelly Ripa 4 of 5Kelly has been a favorite for a long time and her talent is very evident. From All My Children to sitcom shows and of course Live with Kelly.
Why shouldn't she replace Ann? Well, who would replace her on Life with Kelly? Have they even found a replacement for Regis on the show? It won't be the same without her!
Barbara Walters 5 of 5Barbara is a powerhouse in journalism and it would be hard to find someone who doesn't know who she is. She got her first taste of popularity after 10 years of co-hosting the Today show with Hugh Downs.
Why shouldn't she replace Ann? Barbara has totally been-there-done-that and is on to much better and better things now.
