New Canaan resident Ann Curry is rumored to be on “The View” list of possible hosts.


NBC News’ Ann Curry is on the list of possible candidates to co-host “The View,” the New York Post reported today.

If hired, the New Canaan resident would join Rosie O’Donnell, who’s returning to the show after seven years, and Whoopi Goldberg.

The 14-year-old show, which has normally had five hosts, lost three of them recently — show creator Barbara Walters, Sherri Shepherd and Jenny McCarthy.

Curry, who left the “Today” show in 2012, is still under a contract with NBC.

Other names being considered include Mario Cantone, Bernadette Peters and Meghan McCain, daughter of Arizona Sen. John McCain, according to the article.

    The View would be Sooo lucky to have a class act like Ann Curry!!
    Not sure she would consider such a show, she has so much more to give than cross talk chatter!
    She would totally improve the intellectual content/comments of this show.

    What’s with “The View”? That show was over years ago. It went downhill from the first day it started. I don’t give it much more time now that the heteraphobe Rosie is back.
