Ann Curry is returning to "Today" -- albeit due to tragic circumstances.


Curry, who was replaced by Savannah Guthrie on NBC's "Today" in late June, will co-anchor the morning news show with her replacement live from Aurora, Colo. -- where a gunman killed 12 people and injured dozens of others during a screening of "The Dark Knight Rises" -- on "Today"'s weekend editions.
