Flash Scoop: Ann Curry will replace Meredith Vieira:
It won’t be long now. The first week of May, NBC News will announce Meredith Vieira is leaving “Today,” and Ann Curry, the show’s newsreader, is replacing her as Matt Lauer‘s co-anchor. “Ann Curry has been primping for that job for years,” said one insider. “Network brass might incur the wrath of the audience if they didn’t give it to her.” Vieira — who also hosts “Who Wants to Be a Millionaire” — will finally get to sleep in.
