The media rumor mill fodder fed by Curry is false. New CNN boss Jeff Zucker is not interested in hiring Ann Curry. Buzz had it that Zucker was eyeing the NBC News muzzled anchoress for Erin Burnett‘s 8p slot. Buzz that was probably planted by serial leaker Curry or surrogates.
Zucker has put the kibosh to Curry‘s kissing up, if you believe Friday’s UK Daily Mail Exclusive!
UK Daily Mail Exclusive!: Ann Curry “is now entering a phase in her $10 million contract where she will be free to negotiate a move – with NBC chiefs also free to let her go.”
However, a source confirmed that while new CNN boss Jeff Zucker is a fan, he does not want to hire her, adding: “Jeff won’t pay $10 million for Ann. There is a lot of resentment now at NBC that she had her moment, she had her pity party – but she’s taken things too far.”
“She needs to knuckle down, keep her head down and make some great TV.”
