Is Meredith Vieira on her way back to “Today“?

With NBC making moves that could oust current “Today” host Ann Curry as early as next week, TMZ reports that the network went to a familiar face as a potential replacement for the morning show, Meredith Vieira. Vieira, of course, was in the chair for years before opting to spend more time with her family, which opened the door for Curry in the first place.

TMZ reports that the offer was made around two weeks ago and the answer is…. no. Indeed, Vieira declined to return to the show she anchored for six years.

Confirming yesterday’s report, the site reports that network sources say the frontrunner is Savannah Guthrie, who co-hosts the third hour of the morning program.
