“Ann wants out of her contract, big time. She has formally asked her attorney to explore exit options from the network,” a source said. “However, NBC bosses have indicated they are unwilling to release Ann from the contract. If Ann were to just quit, there is a non-compete clause, which would prohibit her from working for another news outlet for two years.”

I’m sure an update in the story will be revealed soon!
