Ann Curry Talks ‘Today’ Ratings at Matrix Awards

Ann Curry was one of the eight women honored at the New York Women in Communications 2012 Matrix Awards luncheon at the Waldorf-Astoria today.

In her acceptance speech, Curry praised her female colleagues in television — “Barbara, Jane, Connie, Lesley, Diane” — as well as her “great bosses, especially the exceptional men I get to work for today.”

“I’m not sucking up, even though recent ratings events might dictate that I should,” Curry joked.

NBC News president Steve Capus and “Today” show EP Jim Bell were at the NBC table, alongside Al Roker and Hoda Kotb. Curry’s award was presented to her by her “Today” show predecessor Meredith Vieira.

Barbara Walters, Katie Couric and Lesley Stahl also served as presenters during the luncheon. FishbowlNY has more on the 2012 Matrix Awards.
