After working at NBC News for 25 years, Ann Curry left the network.

The journalist, who turns 67 on November 19, hasn’t been in the spotlight much since she left her job at Today in 2012 and then NBC News in 2015.

Even though she’s not making headlines, Curry is still working in journalism.

Curry, who is the oldest of five siblings, was born in Guam to parents Hiroe Nagase and Robert Paul “Bob” Curry. She spent part of her childhood in Japan before moving to Oregon, where she went to high school and later college.

Her career in broadcasting started in 1978 as an intern at KTVL, an NBC affiliate in Oregon. She did well and became the station’s first female news reporter.

After two years, she went to KGW in Portland, where she worked as both an anchor and reporter. Later, she moved to Los Angeles and worked as a reporter for a CBS affiliate for six years. During this time, she won two Emmy Awards for her work.

In 1990, Curry started working at NBC News.

She began as a correspondent for NBC News in Chicago. Later, she became an anchor on the morning show called NBC News at Sunrise, which doesn’t exist anymore. During her five years on this show, she also filled in for Matt Lauer on Today.

Then, in 1997, she became a news anchor on Today and stayed in that role until 2011.

Besides reading the news on Today, Curry was also chosen as a co-anchor for Dateline NBC in 2005. She often filled in as the main host on NBC Nightly News from 2005 to 2011.

In June 2012, Curry lost her job, and it was a very emotional and public event. The exact reason for her leaving Today was never made clear.

Even though she wasn’t on Today anymore, she stayed with NBC News until January 2015.

After working at NBC News for 25 years, Curry took things a bit slower, but she still made a big impact with her reporting.

She started her own media company, worked on the PBS series called We’ll Meet Again, gave a TED Talk about how to make people trust journalism again, and hosted a show called Chasing the Cure on TNT.

In 2022, Curry got a big award called the Murrow Lifetime Achievement Award from Washington State University. They gave her this award because she’s done a lot of important work talking about people suffering in wars and natural disasters. She’s been a journalist, took photos, and reported on these tough situations.

Recently, Curry had a conversation with Min Jin Lee, who wrote the book “Pachinko,” for a show on PBS Arts Talk.

Even though Curry doesn’t post much on social media, after not posting for a year and a half, she came back to share a photo of winter scenery.
