  • Is Ann Curry destined to rub elbows every morning with Rosie O'Donnell?
    The former "Today" cohost — who tearfully exited NBC's morning show in 2012 — is rumored to be in the running for a spot on ABC's talk show "The View," according to a report Sunday in the New York Post.
    Curry graduated from Ashland High School and the University of Oregon and worked for television stations in Medford and Portland before moving to Los Angeles to report for KCBS-TV.
    A move to "The View" would put her alongside O'Donnell, the famously gruff comedian known almost as much for her feuds as for her one-liners. O'Donnell will return to "The View" after a previous tenure ended in 2007.
    Is Curry up to the Rosie challenge?
    An ABC spokeswoman declined to offer any comment on the report.
    But Curry is just one of many names being batted around as "The View" undergoes a major overhaul in the wake of exit announcements from Sherri Shepherd and Jenny McCarthy. Co-creator and recurring panelist Barbara Walters earlier announced her retirement.
    Other possibilities include Leah Remini, who was previously squeezed out of CBS' rival show "The Talk."
    Curry is still under contract to NBC and contributes international pieces through her "Reporting Our World" franchise. But a "View" gig would get her back on TV screens on a daily basis.
    She exited "Today" following months of rumors concerning behind-the-scenes dissension on the show. Cohost Matt Lauer was often blamed in media reports for engineering her ouster, although he weathered the controversy and recently extended his contract with NBC.
