Ann Curry to host TV show to solve medical mysteries
NEW YORK (AP) — Ann Curry is getting into the business of medical crowdsourcing on television.

Cadiz woman reconnects with childhood friend on new PBS show
HOPKINSVILLE, Ky. (AP) — "We've gotta find Mary Frances" was just a phrase Reiko Nagumo said at the end of her museum presentations about a childhood friend she lost because of World War II.
Nagumo, now in her 80s and blind, wondered if she would die before reconnecting with Frances — a white girl in her class who befriended her in 1942 when no one wanted anything to do with the Japanese.
Ann Curry wishes she hadnt cried. Its the only regret she holds onto from her last signoff as co-anchor of NBCs Today.
Her voice shook that morning in 2012 as she spoke directly to viewers who saw her as a groundbreaker, and apologized for not being able to carry the ball across the goal line.

Ann Curry, the award-winning journalist and former NBC news anchor, had a message as the Tapestry keynote speaker Friday for the 1,600 women in attendance.
