After ann curry announced her exit as a regular cohost on NBC's Today after 15 years with the morning show, a number of celebrities took to Twitter to wish the veteran journo well in her new role as an anchor-at-large and roving correspondent for NBC News and its many platforms.
In a few cases, however, some complained about what they felt was her ouster on the heels of rival Good Morning America's recent ratings victory over Today.
Here's a roundup of the most notable tweets:
Piers Morgan: "Just watched the @AnnCurry farewell on @todayshow- great lady, really feel for her. But don't blame @MLauer - he's one of the good guys."
Holly Robinson Peete: "Dear @AnnCurry: Thank U for your integrity and candor and honesty. Every wall is a door. You got this..."
Meghan McCain: "Who is having a worse day Republicans, Ann Curry or CNN?"
Former CNN anchor T.J. Holmes: "No way Ann Curry's "Today Show" career should have ended this way. She's a class act. Deserved better. Rooting for her in all she does next!"
Lisa Lampanelli: "NBC to pay Ann Curry $10 million to leave ‘Today'. I'll pay $20 mil if someone will dismantle ‘The View' completely!"
Blogger and author Ana Marie Cox: "Ann Curry leaving NBC to spend less time with your family."
Ann's colleagues who cohost the fourth hour of Today also weighed in:
Hoda Kotb: "@AnnCurry i'll miss your daily hugs in the hallway...but i know where you sit ;) ... looking forward to what's next xo."
Kathie Lee Gifford: "Wishing @AnnCurry all the joy she deserves. What a classy lady."
