Ann Curry confirmed she is leaving her one year gig as co-host of NBC's TODAY show.
She told USA Today:
"It's going to be a bit of a tough day."
The 55-year-old journalist joined TODAY back in 1997 as a news anchor. She replaced Meredith Vieira in June 2011, working alongside Matt Lauer.
Shortly after, ratings began to drop.
"I'm going to have to tell our viewers. That's what makes me more emotional than anything. I don't want to leave them. I love them. And I will really miss them."
In regards to her not-so-rave reviews, she added:
"You know, Matt and I have had great on-air chemistry for 14 years, been part of the No. 1 winning team for a history-making number of years. That said, I just finished my freshman year as co-host. In every single co-host's first year, there have been kinks to be worked out, and perhaps I deserve as much blame for that as anyone."
