Monday's "Today" centered around a tribute to the co-anchor, who marked a decade since her debut on the morning show. She received an on-air surprise from her husband and kids.
Her abrupt departure from the show, announced in in June 2012, became a hot topic again after Lauer was fired from the network in 2017 amid allegations of inappropriate sexual behavior in the workplace.
Lauer says Farrow is "using salacious allegations as promotional trinkets to sell his book" while NBC News's president says it has "nothing to hide."

Turner’s “Chasing the Cure” will attempt to diagnose medical mysteries on live TV, but the show won’t actually be providing cures for patients, host Ann Curry says.The 90-minute show, which will air live on TNT and TBS and stream online, will introduce patients whose mysterious illnesses have stumped their doctors, allowing a panel of experts and viewers at home to suggest potential reasons for their symptoms, new avenues of testing to try or even possible cures.“We are not their doctors,” Curry said at the Television Critics Association press tour on Wednesday. “They have their own medical doctors, or primary care physicians, if they don’t have a doctor, we have to sort of deal with that challenge. But essentially what they’re getting is a panel of experts for a problem that they can’t resolve. And they can take their advice or not.”Also Read: All Elite Wrestling's Cody Rhodes Says You Won't See Blood Weekly on His TNT ShowIn some cases, the show will connect patients to specialists, but audiences won’t see them actually receive medical treatment.“They have come to us asking for help,” Curry said. “We’re dealing with people who are saying ‘I can’t find any answers. I need some help.’ And we’re exposing them to the highest level of doctors.”“Part of it is being able to offer care in their hometowns,” said showrunner and NBC News alum Kim Bondy, adding that the project has already fielded offers from doctors and institutions across the country willing to offer their services.“Chasing the Cure” has also established a website where patients can upload their case files and field responses from other users, even if they don’t make it on the show. Curry said she expects the “vast majority” of cases to be handled this way.Also Read: TNT's 'Snowpiercer' Adaptation Moves to TBS - Gets 2nd Season Renewal“When you expose them to a lot of people, there’s a greater chance that they will be able to see what will make them feel better,” Curry said. “I think we are each other’s greatest resource, and we have been since the beginning of humankind.”“We can remind each other that we’re not alone,” she continued. “That we can contribute to someone’s health and happiness even though I don’t know you. Even though I’ve never been to your state … We’re already seeing this happen on our website.”“Chasing the Cure” premieres August 8 on TNT and TBS.Read original story How Ann Curry’s ‘Chasing the Cure’ Aims to Crowdsource Health Solutions At TheWrap
