Ann Curry does a fine job, given what 'Today' has turned into.
Didn't Vieira (sp?) leave the show due to her husband's health? Did something change there (maybe not wanting to hear the answer)?
That's what I remember too, that she left for personal reasons related to her husband and didn't want to do the AM routine.
I think Ann Curry is being used a scapegoat to an extent and she is a news person on a show like GMA that isn't enough news. It maybe valid that NBC wanted someone with a more dynamic personality or voice, and Robin Roberts at GMA was working for GMA, but Ann might not have been for Today.
