I hear ratings went down after she began co-hosting and that Good Morning America beat out the Today Show recently for the first time in many years.

I think how NBC handled the situation was terrible for poor Ann. They leaked it to the press that she was getting let go instead of just letting her decide how she wanted to announce her departure. I doubt the ratings dip had much to do with her anyway, as much as it has to do with the fact that the Today show has become Inside Edition AM.
I haven't got the slightest idea how to change people, but I still keep a long list of prospective candidates just in case I should ever figure it out.
