From Katie Couric's colonoscopy to Matt Lauer's infamous Tom Cruise interview to Ann Curry's tearful last day, here's a look at the biggest, buzziest, and most memorable moments in TODAY show history
Ann Curry Leaves Today, 2012
After 15 years on Today — including one as co-anchor — Curry said a tearful, tense goodbye to the morning show on June 28, 2012. "I'm sorry I couldn't carry the ball over the finish line, but man I did try," she told viewers. Months later, a behind-the-scenes book by Brian Stelter claimed that the veteran journalist had been bullied by colleagues in the months leading up to her exit. "She told friends that her final months were a form of professional torture," Stelter wrote.
