Anderson Cooper to Quit CNN Over Ann Curry?
Posted by Adam
ANDERSON Cooper is not a happy chappy!
The silver-haired newsman has threatened to retire if Ann Curry replaces him at CNN.
“Anderson knows his days as a CNN anchor are numbered, and he’s spitting mad,” a source told American tabloid the National Enquirer.
“They’ve talked to him about being a reporter at large , where he’d cover stories from hot zones and war areas around the world. He’s always loved doing that, but considers anything less than heading up CNN’s prime-time news coverage as a demotion.
“He’s saying he’d quit first. He sees Ann as a lightweight compared to him. He doesn’t think she’s got enough time in this field to make a great newswoman.
“Ann’s had a diminished role at NBC since she was booted from TODAY in June. So she can certainly sympathize with Anderson’s refusal to take a smaller role at CNN if she comes on board. But she knows from experience that TV news is a cutthroat game.”
