According to sources – Ann Curry refuses to leave unless NBC network pays her $20 million, even as Savannah Guthrie is NBC’s new official replacement. Curry and NBC are discussing her exit from the Today show, with money being the hang-up, network sources told.
Savannah Guthrie will be the Ann Curry replacement, who will be the current co-host of the show’s third hour, and has already made her contract, details of which weren’t available.
Ann Curry gets $10million a year and is 1 year into a 3-year deal. Sources tell that NBC doesn’t want to shell out the remaining $20million. But, Curry wants the remaining money and her exit from the network. NBC wants to pay her $10 million and give her a foreign correspondent employment.
These people get paid a lot of funds for going on television every morning and pretending to like each other. The NBC could pay her the $20 million and then exclude her from working anywhere else for two years. But, they don’t want to pay that much, which is why the two sides are bargaining.
NBC network wants to build the switch hastily, so they can showcase Guthrie before the Olympics 2012. Sources told that NBC wants to make the statement late this week or early next week.
