Ann Curry's Fans Launch Petition to Keep Her on 'Today'


An Iraq veteran, who admires 'Curry's compassionate style of journalism,' pleads with NBC not to fire the 55-year-old journalist.

Ann Curry's fans don't stay quiet when it's rumored that their favorite journalist may be dropped from "Today". More than 8,000 people have signed a petition posted on Change.org, in an attempt to save her co-hosting gig on the NBC morning program.

Starting the petition was Sgt. Stephen Crowley, an Iraq veteran with PTSD and a 60% service connected disability. The 49-year-old says "Curry's compassionate style of journalism" gives him "a sense of calm and certainty in life."

The self-described aspiring writer continues praising Curry, "Her compassion and dedication to her audience radiates every time she stands in front of a camera. She connects with people. She has definitely connected with me." He additionally recalls, "She favorited my Tweet when I sent her my Award Winning Non-Fiction essay 'A Marble in the Sand'."

Asked what he would say to Curry if he could, Crowley tells The Hollywood Reporter, "I would just tell her not to let this get her down. Because she has a lot of people behind her, who love her, who love her journalism and her style. I'd just tell her to hang in there."

It has been reported that NBC plans to replace Curry on "Today". Former co-anchor Meredith Vieira was allegedly offered to return, but she turned it down. Savannah Guthrie, the co-host of the show's 9 A.M. hour, is now mentioned as the top candidate to take the duty.
