NEW YORK (AP) — Only a year after becoming Matt Lauer’s co-host on NBC’s “Today” show, Ann Curry may soon be losing that job.

A source with knowledge of the show who spoke on condition of anonymity said Wednesday that NBC is discussing a plan to ease Curry out of the co-hosting role. The New York Times first reported these discussions on Wednesday.

Savannah Guthrie, who co-hosts the show’s third hour, is at the top of the list of Curry’s possible replacements. NBC News President Steve Capus and the show’s executive producer, Jim Bell, did not immediately return a request for comment.

“Today” lost in the ratings this spring for the first time since 1995 after a string of 852 consecutive weeks. Since then, “Today” and ABC’s “Good Morning America” have been trading wins.
