Ann Curry showed up to work Thursday morning, despite a wave of news reports that said the co-host could be on her way out of the NBC’s Today show.

The network has yet to release any details regarding Curry’s future with the popular morning TV show.

Curry was also mum on the subject Thursday, but she recently discussed her job with Ladies Home Journal, for an issue scheduled to come out in August.

The New York Times first reported about the possible change on Today.

“It’s hard not to take it personally. You worry, Am I not good enough? Am I not what people need? Am I asking the right questions? When people say negative things or speculate, you can’t help but feel hurt,” she told the interviewer, who asked about Today’s recent ratings battle with its main competitor, Good Morning America.

She added: “I’ve been at Today for 15 years and I’d love to make it to 20. I think eventually I want to become a teacher, like my father wanted to be, and hopefully positively influence the next generation.” She has been with Today since 1997.

Even though nothing was said on-air Thursday, there was still some awkwardness, especially when a caption appeared during her interview with actor Steve Carell that read: “Here Today, Gone Tomorrow,” according to the New York Daily News.

The caption was in reference to Carell’s new film Seeking a Friend for the End of the World, but some watching the live telecast may have taken it the wrong way.

Curry replaced Meredith Vieira last June to become Matt Lauer’s partner.
