Natalie Morales may be the next Today show anchor to leave the top-rated morning show.

According to the New York Post’s Page Six, Morales, who’s been with the show since 2006, isn’t pleased that she may not be chosen to succeed Ann Curry.

“If Natalie’s passed over for the job, she’s going to leave next,” a source told the publication.

Curry may be leaving the NBC morning show as early as the end of the week, report several news outlets.

A rep for NBC Universal shot down the claims that Morales was unhappy in her position, calling the report “totally untrue.”

Curry may not be on Today for long, but it’s believed that she will stay on with NBC.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the network is working on a “substantial” role for the reporter on its NBC News team.

As reported earlier this week, NBC is expected to pay Curry the remainder of her $10 million contract and replace her with Savannah Guthrie, who co-hosts the 9 a.m. hour of Today. Hoda Kotb, of Hoda and Kathie Lee fame, has also reportedly been considered as a replacement.
