Ann Curry and Erin Andrews both left their respective networks this week. Let's take a look at some other well-known exits of female anchors.

1980: Jane Curtin is replaced as co-host of SNL's "Weekend Update" after violating a contract clause that required her to be funny.

1987: Gayle Gardner quits SportsCenter after watching Chris Berman eat a pulled pork sandwich during a broadcast.

2003: Ryan Seacrest leaves American Juniors.

2006: Katie Couric leaves the Today Show for CBS Evening News so she can more seriously focus on tabloid fluff.

In episode 4.03 of How I Met Your Mother Robin Scherbatsky leaves her local news job to work at a Japanese news station. Sorry, it's just really hard to think of that many female news anchors.

2011: Andrea Kramer is removed as the sidline reporter for Sunday Night Football after a drunk Joe Namath does not attempt to kiss her on-air.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
