Deborah Norville: I feel for Ann Curry

NBC's "Today" was riding high in the ratings when a change was made at the anchor desk. A new woman took over as co-host, replacing an iconic predecessor. Ratings tumbled and, just over a year later, that woman lost her hosting job.

It sounds a lot like the media reports that are speculating about what Ann Curry is rumored to be going through, but that scenario also happened more than two decades ago.

Deborah Norville lost her "Today" hosting job in April 1991, just 15 months after replacing Jane Pauley. Now hosting the syndicated "Inside Edition," Norville spoke with CNN's Piers Morgan about the current reported crisis at "Today."

Watch Norville talk about how the current media speculation compares to what she faced in '91, and, after watching the video, let us know what you think is ailing "Today." Is Ann Curry to blame for the show's woes, or is she a scapegoat?

With those efforts, Ephron, who died at 71 on June 26, has left behind a groundbreaking legacy filled with great characters, plenty of wit, and that distinct Ephron perspective.
