Curry will anchor a special edition of "Dateline" tonight at 9:00 p.m., and co-host the network's weekend editions of "Today" on Saturday and Sunday with Savannah Guthrie. Curry will also report on this evening's "Nightly News."
Guthrie replaced Curry as "Today's" co-host with Matt Lauer. NBC replaced Curry with Guthrie as part of a plan to win the number one spot as the televison morning show with the most viewers now held by "Good Morning America".
"Today" show previously held the slot for sixteen years.
Curry has accepted a new multi-year deal as an international correspondent/anchor contributing to all NBC News broadcasts. She'll also appear on "Today" as an anchor-at-large. Curry will travel to London for the Summer Olympics, and her "fancy new title," as she described it on-air on her last "Today" show segment, means she'll get "tickets to every big story [I] want to cover," according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Guthrie has served as NBC News' White House correspondent from December 2008 to June 2011, reporting for "NBC Nightly News With Brian Williams" and "Today" and MSNBC. Guthrie joined full time in June 2011 as co-host of the show's third hour. She also serves as the show's Chief Legal Analyst.
