NEW YORK — Longtime NBC news anchor and correspondent Ann Curry is leaving her job at the network to pursue a new startup venture, which will be “seeded” by NBCUniversal. Curry, 58, began her career at NBC in 1990.

Through the years, she has served as anchor for “NBC News at Sunrise,” “Dateline” and co-anchor of “Today,” which ended abruptly in 2012. Since then, Curry has remained at NBC, holding the title of “Today” show anchor at large and reporting in various other capacities for the network. In her new role, Curry will be able to report on any platform or network via a multiplatform distribution approach. “I look forward to what we will do ahead.

At the same time, I can’t wait to expand my reach and work with people I admire in other places,” said Curry in an official statement.
