NBC wants you to know that Ann Curry remains very much on the job: She’s reporting from the Central African Republic, a region many fear is on the brink of genocide.
In a striking contrast of First World and Third World problems, Curry is the subject of recent reports that NBC isn’t planning to renew her contract even as she covers a human rights crisis.

NBC has denied the reports. But nothing speaks louder than an international assignment to cover legitimate news.
Curry is aggressively covering the crisis, filing reports and tweeting about camps of displaced people, a little girl lost in a camp of 100,000 people, and women waiting in a Doctors without Borders clinic.
In one of her reports, Amy Martin, head of the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs in CAR, described the region as “like Darfur, plus anarchy.”
Curry’s future with the network has been in question since she was dismissed from co-hosting “Today” in 2012.
