Only one problem: they all went to the other Wheaton College, in Illinois. Curry said in a letter to the Wheaton community she was "mortified" by the mistake. (AP Photo/Evan Agostini, File) (AP)

Ann Curry is still working at NBC's "Today" show, even as the network maintains its silence on reports that she's about to be replaced.

Curry was in her familiar co-host role with Matt Lauer on Friday, helping introduce musician Kenny Chesney for a performance outside the show's Rockefeller Center studio.

NBC is reportedly discussing a plan to remove her as co-host a year after she replaced Meredith Vieira. After 16 years of unquestioned dominance in the morning, "Today" is in a tough fight with ABC's "Good Morning America."

On Thursday, Curry had one apparently unintentional indignity piled on: At one point as her picture filled the screen, a graphic beneath her face read: "Here Today, Gone Tomorrow."
