Curry is co-anchor on the Today Show and a former host of Dateline.

Curry was born in Guam: Raised in Oregon, Curry started out in broadcasting in the small town of Medford, where she became KTVL's first female news reporter. In 1992, she started anchoring NBC News at Sunrise-the show that precedes the Today Show-and occasionally got to fill in as a replacement on Today. When Matt Lauer was promoted to co anchor in 1997 following Bryant Gumbel's defection to CBS, Curry replaced Lauer as news anchor. For many years Curry dutifully reported the "hard" news from the desk while also juggling her other gig at Dateline. In 2011, upon Meredith Vieira's departure, Curry got the big promotion to co-anchor with Lauer.
