ANN Curry will make a fortune when she leaves the TODAY Show.
According to TMZ, the newswoman — who is being fired from the show due to poor ratings and the fact she doesn’t get along with co-host Matt Lauer — will bag a $10 million payout from NBC.
The 55-year-old Curry had been at the beginning of a three-year deal with the Peacock Network.
She signed the deal — valued at around $20 million — a year ago after she was named co-host.
That deal would have paid her $10 million for the final year of her contract.
According to TMZ, the settlement would be paid solely to her to leave the show.
NBC is expected to announce a permanent replacement for her later this week. Savannah Gutherie, a co-host of the TODAY Show‘s third hour is widely expected to take over Curry’s job.
