NBC Affiliates Post Story About Ann Curry’s Struggles with the Mothership

In what may be more of a sign of the times than a break with protocol, at least two NBC affiliates have posted the recent story about former “Today Show” co-anchor Ann Curry allegedly begging to be let out of her NBC contract so she can work for her old boss Jeff Zucker at CNN.

Spokane NBC Affiliate KHQ posted a version of the story attributed to British publication the Daily Mail (click here to view). While the story on the website of West Palm Beach NBC affiliate WPTV (click here to view) has a byline from the station’s online content producer.

Steven Wasserman, vice president and general manager of WPTV told TVSpy, “I suspect this story will be on our air tonight on “ET” or “The Insider”. Why wouldn’t we put it on our website?  I don’t think it’s a good idea to not run a legit, talk about story just because it has to do with our network.”

Here’s the story on KHQ’s site:
