Wouldn’t it be a hoot to have Ann Curry turn up opposite the newscast that dumped at the behest of a self-absorbed anchor later brought down by his serial harassment of women?
And, even better, having her (in part) replace another self-absorbed anchor with the same problem?
Speculation is running high that Curry could be in the running for a job at CBS News.
She reportedly has had “informal talks” with CBS brass to become co-anchor of “CBS This Morning,”
Page Six is reporting that Curry is more interested in hosting “CBS Evening News” or joining “60 Minutes” as a correspondent.
But new CBS News boss Susan Zirinsky is said to be already eyeing “The Morning” host Norah O’Donnell for the “Evening News” gig.
(Ever wonder it’s like to be Jeff Glor these days?)
Quite honestly, the morning news slot would seem to be a better fit for Curry and the program could use the potential ratings jolt.
Pairing up the woman who helped cement Matt Lauer’s reputation as a self-involved wanker with Gayle King, who just last Friday did the same favor for R. Kelly would make the program very buzzworthy.
Now all CBS has to do is lock down King.
