Ann Curry owns her Wheaton moment in Newsweek

Pictured: Ann CurryAnother reason to love Ann Curry: She takes responsibility for her mistakes and can even laugh about them. In an article titled “My Favorite Mistakes” that appeared recently in Newsweek, the NBC “Today” show co-host graciously recalled mixing up our Wheaton with the other one during her Commencement speech here in 2010: “I think mortified is the best way to describe how I felt,” she said. “I wrote a letter of apology to the school. I owned the mistake. I just wanted to make sure the students felt taken care of. In the speech, I tried to tell them something that would be useful. I didn’t want anything to take away from that.”
