Steve Capus Defines Ann Curry’s New Role

In a note to NBC News and MSNBC staffers, obtained by TVNewser, NBC News president Steve Capus fine-tuned what Ann Curry‘s new role with NBC will be.

“In her new role, Ann will report on the global and domestic humanitarian stories that our viewers need to know and care about,”said Capus. “I can assure you, she will pursue these efforts with dedication, empathy and tenacity. NBC News is in much better shape with Ann Curry out there reporting these stories.”

Subject: Ann Curry

Ann Curry announced this morning on “TODAY” she is moving into a new
role as NBC News National & International Correspondent and “TODAY”
Anchor at Large. She will be reporting for all platforms of the news
division including “TODAY,” “Nightly News,” “Rock Center with Brian
Williams,” “Dateline,” MSNBC, MSNBC.com and all of our digital
properties.

As everyone here in the news division knows, Ann is a gifted journalist
with a strong sense of service to her colleagues, peers and especially
our viewers. In her new role, Ann will report on the global and
domestic humanitarian stories that our viewers need to know and care
about.

Having known Ann since our early days together at “NBC News at Sunrise,”
I can assure you, she will pursue these efforts with dedication, empathy
and tenacity. NBC News is in much better shape with Ann Curry out there
reporting these stories.

This is not a farewell from “TODAY.” Ann’s reporting will be showcased
on “TODAY” as well as all other NBC News broadcasts. Outside of the
confines of the studio, she’ll have more freedom for those pursuits.

Please join me in congratulating Ann on this terrific new role. Simply
put, she is the absolute best person for this job.

-Steve
