Ann Curry's tearful sign-off from the 'Today' show

Ann Curry will leave her post as Today co-host. She made the announcement herself on Thursday morning’s program.

“This is not easy to say, but today is going to be my last morning in a regular role on Today," Curry said through tears.

"This is not how I expected to ever leave this couch after 15 years," she admitted. "But I am so grateful, especially to all of you who watch. We often call ourselves a family, but you are the real Today show family. You are why I’ve ventured into dangerous places and interviewed dictators and jumped out of planes and climbed mountains. ... I have loved you and I have wanted to give you the world, and I still do."

Matt Lauer, who in April renewed his deal to stay with Today (for a reported $25 million a year), was sitting next to her.
