Ann Curry has finally severed ties with NBC and The TODAY Show, but their competitors over at Good Morning America are worried that the contract-free journalist is coming their way RadarOnline.com has exclusively learned.
“People at GMA have heard the rumblings about a fourth hour being added to the show and Ann Curry possibly being one of the hosts and they’re not happy about that news,” a show insider told Radar.
“They are worried about Ann joining the show because she is too serious and this should be a fun show.”
Curry had a contentious relationship with her co-host Matt Lauer on The TODAY Show and her veteran journalism style never seemed to work on the more laid-back morning show format. Now the insider says if she joined GMA the same problems would arise.
“She covers serious news stories, not fashion or red carpets.”
As Radar previously reported, Lauer was “relieved” that Curry finally left NBC, and his rivals are concerned that she’ll land on their show now.
The show insider explained that Curry’s reporting style is vastly different from the rest of the GMA anchors who do cover hard news but definitely show viewers that they have a good time together.
“Ann just won’t be a good fit,” they told Radar.
