Is Ann Curry leaving the Today show?

According to a The New York Times report (citing unidentified parties involved in the negotiations), Matt Lauer's latest co-host may soon find herself off the popular morning show and into a new job at the network as a foreign correspondent.

An official announcement is reportedly expected before the start of the summer Olympics next month.

As for who will wake up America alongside Lauer, the Times and other news outlets point to the show's 9 a.m. anchor Savannah Guthrie, or possibly its news anchor, Natalie Morales, as Curry's possible successor.

Former co-host Meredith Vieira, also said to be a consideration, has told friends she is not interested in returning fulltime, says the Times.

Though it's not official yet (no news of Curry's rumored departure was broached on Thursday's Today broadcast), tell us:
