About Ann Curry

Ann Curry (born November 19, 1956) is an American journalist and photojournalist[2] who has been a reporter for more than 30 years, focused on human suffering in war zones and natural disasters. Curry has reported from the wars in Syria, Darfur, Congo, the Central African Republic, Kosovo, Lebanon, Israel, Afghanistan and Iraq.[3] Curry has covered numerous disasters, including the tsunamis in Southeast Asia and the 2010 earthquake in Haiti, where her appeal via Twitter topped Twitter's 'most powerful' list, credited for helping speed the arrival of humanitarian planes.


Curry was born in Agaña, Guam, the daughter of Hiroe Nagase and Robert Paul "Bob" Curry. Her father, an American from Pueblo, Colorado, had English and Irish ancestry. Her mother is Japanese. Her parents met when her father, a career navy sailor, worked as a streetcar conductor during the United States occupation of Japan following the Second World War. Although he was transferred out of Japan, he returned two years later to marry Nagase. Curry is the eldest of five children.

Curry lived in Japan for several years as a child, and attended the Ernest J. King School on the United States Fleet Activities Sasebo naval base in Sasebo, Nagasaki. Later, she moved to Ashland, Oregon, where she graduated from Ashland High School. She graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in journalism from the University of Oregon in 1978.

Curry was raised Catholic by her mother, who was a convert to the religion. Curry is married to Brian Ross, a software executive, whom she met in college. They have a daughter, McKenzie, and a son, William Walker Curry Ross. The family lives in New Canaan, Connecticut.
