Ann Curry is nearly out.
Might Hoda Kotb be in?

If/when Ann Curry gets fired from Today, it will cost NBC a pretty penny.
Actually, many pretty pennies. More pretty pennies than a celebrity gossip website knows how to count.
Network insiders tell TMZ that Curry is definitely a goner next week, and that the ousting will cost NBC close to $30 million because the co-host signed a long-term contract in 2011 that guarantees her $10 million/year.
That number ought to soften the blow, huh?
Curry is also rumored to become a foreign correspondent for NBC News, a capacity that will involve… who cares?!? $30 million?!? YEESH!
