NEW YORK — Longtime NBC News correspondent and anchor Ann Curry is leaving the network.

Curry’s exit comes 2-1/2 years after she was ousted from the anchor desk of the “Today” show after a tumultuous run of just a year. It was a job she had apprenticed for during several years as the program’s news anchor.

Since then, Curry has held the title of “Today” show anchor-at-large, as well as anchoring and reporting for other NBC News shows.

The 58-year-old Curry has been with NBC since 1990.
