TV anchor Ann Curry has been banned from live TV according to Tuesday, Jan. 29 reports from MSN who writes that the network has issued a new edict stating that Curry will only be permitted to do NBC pre-recorded interviews so that producers can edit the content.
It was also reported that NBC has stated has been taping interviews for NBC news programs ever since Curry's relationship with the network and her former co-host Matt Lauer took an ugly turn which resulted in Curry being fired last June.
Many of Curry’s loyal fans believe to this day that Lauer threw Curry under the bus in order to save his own job at the network, a charge he fiercely denies.
Friends say he is miserable that people on the street actually harass him by throwing verbal tirades at Lauer for how he treated Curry.
Jim Bell, the show’s executive producer, has tried to protect Lauer by setting the record straight that Bell was solely responsible for letting Curry go. But a public lunch attended by the fired Curry and Matt Lauer seems the only way that Lauer can be exonerated in Curry’s departure.
Various news sites have reported that Ann Curry is currently in talks with CNN's news chief Jeff Zucker, who wants to hire Curry. In other news NBC has been rumored to want to release Ann Curry from her multi-year contract as soon as possible.
