Enter Hoda Kotb and a new controversy that threatens to once again return NBC and its desperate inability to make a decision and stick with it back to their rightful place in the public eye. NBC says it's fully behind Savannah Guthrie. Uh-huh. I've heard that before.
Ann Curry's half-Japanese background probably doesn't even register with most Today viewers. What a vast majority see is a talented journalist; a class act who doesn't have an easy, breezy morning show co-host personality.
Savannah Guthrie is likeable, spunky and intelligent. She's a goofy kid sister but with an edge. She must be disappointed to start this coveted, high profile job under uncomfortable circumstances, but she never cracked under the scrutiny.
Curry tearfully told her viewers: "I'm sorry I didn't make it across the finish line." That's not true, she got to the anchor chair and here's where the mystery gets interesting. Ann Curry cannot be blamed for the current Today Show ratings problem.
