In the midst of all this, Curry has allegedly begged NBC to set her free. If her wish is granted she will occupy Cooper’s prime-time slot; rumor has it the network is on a ratings decline.

‘Ann wants out of her contract, big time,’ a source close to the situation told RadarOnline. ‘She has formally asked her attorney to explore exit options from the network.’

“Ann’s lawyer feels that there is a very strong case to be made that NBC has breached terms of the deal because Curry was demoted from TODAY. Furthermore, Ann has basically been sequestered from appearing on the network. Yes, she has been doing some work that has been assigned to her, but it hasn’t been steady,” the insider added.

If NBC does not let her out of her contract and she still decides to bail, it could become very bad for Curry professionally. She could be barred from being hired in any journalist position for two years.
