NBC reportedly offered former ‘Today’ host Meredith Vieira an opportunity to get back in the hot seat, but she turned it down! Read on for more details.

Morning news is up in arms as Ann Curry from The Today Show is reportedly on her way out the door.

And while Savannah Guthrie — co-host of the show’s 9 am hour — is rumored to be replacing Ann, TMZ reports the network first offered the position to Meredith Vieira who anchored the show for six years. Meredith allegedly received an offer two week ago, but turned it down simply because she wasn’t interested in returning.

Ann, 55, has allegedly hired a lawyer, Robert B. Barnett, to represent her in negotiations with NBC to place her in a new position at the network, possibly into a foreign correspondent, according to The NY Times.
