What Does The NBC Reporter Do Now?
The reporter worked in the “Today” show and was doing great with her work; gaining the love from many fans and keeping the show on top of the list.

But what took the show to the next level was a hint of drama added to the show when Ann was not seen on the show in June 2012.
Later, she gave a farewell speech with eyes full of tears that stunned everyone in the show. She portrayed it as if Matt kicked her off the show. When Matt was later expelled from the show in an allegation of “inappropriate sexual behavior,” she got a chance to comment saying that the place always had a “climate of verbal harassment.” In the sexual harassment case, Matt received the support of his ex-wife Nancy Alspaugh, who defended by saying that news was fake.
