Curry's Future in Question; NYT Looks Across The Pond

June 22, 2012
Ann Curry may be on the outs at Today just a year after taking over the co-hosting duties. The morning show slipped behind Good Morning America in the spring. Although no one is sure if Curry is to blame and the show has since regained the No. 1 spot, someone has to take the fall. (In a forthcoming interview with Ladies' Home Journal, Curry seemed to predict the future.) Savannah Guthrie is the favorite to take over as Matt Lauer's partner, but any negotiations are far from complete. Meredith Vieira already turned down an offer. There's no word on where Curry will land, although a return to her hard-news roots would seem to make the most sense. She will certainly be able to find another gig with the Peacock, likely a sweet one, especially since the lawyers are getting involved...

Former New York Times Magazine "Ethicist" Ariel Kaminer will cover higher education in the New York region. She oversaw the recent cover story about Horace Mann. Elsewhere in the Times world, Andy Wright and Todd Haskell get promoted to group vice president, advertising. The former is a 15-year veteran of the company, while the later joined in 2004. And finally, Mark Thompson could be headed to the NYT as CEO. (Talk about burying the lede.) He is the outgoing director general at the BBC... The Los Angeles Times shifts business editor John Corrigan to the arts and entertainment beat and gives him an assistant managing editor title. Additionally, Laurie Ochoa comes back to the LAT as arts and entertainment editor while television critic Mary McNamara gets additional duties as senior culture editor...

Good Morning America taps Ben Mulroney, son of former Canadian Prime Minister Brian Mulroney, as a contributor. He will continue as host of etalk on CTV... Darren Rovell and his hyperactive Twitter feed are back at ESPN. He'll make somewhere north of $500,000 to report on business for the Worldwide Leader with some ABC work throw in, as well... RollingStone.com lays off at least five staffers including managing editor Evie Nagy and associate editor Matthew Perpetua. The plan, it seems, is to combine the print and Web staffs... Quartz, the business brand from the smarties at Atlantic Media, hire Michael Cascio as vice president of global revenue. He spent three years as director of sales working under current Quartz publisher Chris Batty... And there are changes at The Hollywood Reporter, Oxygen Media and more...
