Ann Curry Wants Out of NBC Contract?
Radar Online’s Jen Heger is reporting that Ann Curry wants out of her NBC contract so that she can go to CNN. Color me skeptical but if Curry really wanted out of her contract she would have done it when she had the leverage last year when NBC wanted to remove her from Today.
“Ann wants out of her contract, big time. She has formally asked her attorney to explore exit options from the network. However, NBC bosses have indicated they are unwilling to release Ann from the contract. If Ann were to just quit, there is a non-compete clause, which would prohibit her from working for another news outlet for two years,” a source close to the situation exclusively tells Radar.
“Ann’s lawyer feels that there is a very strong case to be made that NBC has breached terms of the deal because Curry was demoted from TODAY. Furthermore, Ann has basically been sequestered from appearing on the network. Yes, she has been doing some work that has been assigned to her, but it hasn’t been steady,” the insider added.
