The latest buzz on Ann Curry's departure from the Today show is that she'll walk away with a nice chunk of change.
TMZ reports that Curry, who was in her Studio 1A seat today, signed a contract to co-anchor Today for $10 million a year and because she's only one year into it, she'll be given that much when she leaves the job.
Her exit news - she's expected to become a foreign correspondent for NBC - is expected this week, says the New York Post.
Meanwhile, one anonymous former NBC exec blames her downfall on her "overwhelming" empathy. Agree?
