Ann Curry announces departure from Today

[Editor's note] It's no secret that I have railed against anchor Ann Curry from the get-go. I found her to be irritating and ridiculous. She was a poor choice to co-anchor the Today show and now everyone knows it.

All that being said, the video above ripped my heart out.

Though I never believed Ann could carry the show, I never once doubted her love and dedication to Today. In truth, it's not unlike the love many of her biggest detractors feel for the show. We disliked her because we knew the show could be better. But her passion, however badly delivered, was always in evidence. And at the end of the day, she failed at her dream job and that, more than anything, makes me incredibly sad for her.

Perhaps it's guilt or shame typing now but after 15 years of hard work and dedication, I will miss Ann Curry.

I will miss her, too. I hope they give her the old job back. I really liked her in that position not so much in this one but truthfully I hate to see people fail, especially when it is so publicly done. America is so judgemental and here we are having people give their 2 cents without having any idea what it entails to be a reporter.
