The big news outlets seem to be focusing on the fact that ex-Today Show host, Ann Curry is begging to get out of her contract, but no one is talking about the real reason she’s doing this! So she can go and steal Anderson Cooper’s job at CNN! If you look up you will see Ann circling like a vulture above the CNN studios.
‘Ann wants out of her contract, big time,’ a source close to the situation told RadarOnline. ‘She has formally asked her attorney to explore exit options from the network.’
Apparently Curry might be following Jeff Zucker to CNN, as he was her old boss at NBC.
But all this job-jockeying has all but left Anderson Cooper without one! As CNN executives scramble to find a way to let him down easy, offing him a “Traveling Correspondent” gig.
The New York Post says that Cooper could transition to a ‘Christiane Amanpour role’ as a globetrotting correspondent, if Curry bumped him from his spot.
Curry is reportedly slated for Anderson’s rocking 8pm time-slot when former Today show boss, Jeff Zucker, takes over as president of CNN in February.
‘If Ann were to just quit, there is a non-compete clause, which would prohibit her from working for another news outlet for two years,’ the insider said. ‘Furthermore, Ann has basically been sequestered from appearing on the network. Yes, she has been doing some work that has been assigned to her, but it hasn’t been steady.’
As we get the news that Anderson maybe completing his tenor as a CNN anchor, (at least one who gets to sit down,) we all wonder if this will be one of the last images we will see, Kathy Griffin actually getting down and kissing his crotch, live on last night’s New Year’s Eve celebration telecast…
