Asians Laud Today Co-Host Pick

NEW YORK - "Ann Curry will replace Meredith Vieira as co-host of the 'Today' show, NBC announced Monday, confirming much-anticipated changes in the cast of its perennially dominant morning show," Bill Carter and Brian Stelter reported for the New York Times.

"NBC passed over Ms. Curry to select Ms. Vieira five years ago, and some internal questions remain about the chemistry of the Lauer-Curry pairing."

The new lineup presents one of the most multicultural faces on television. Lauer and Guthrie are white, Roker is black, Morales is Hispanic and Curry was born in Guam to a Japanese mother and a white American father.

"The Asian American Journalists Association is thrilled that Ann will be a host on 'Today,' " said Doris Truong, national president of AAJA, "Throughout her career, she has been an outstanding example for the journalism community, winning awards from AAJA — among others — for her reporting. We wish her great continued success in her new role."
