    Anchor Stone Phillips out at NBC News

    NBC News is dropping "Dateline NBC" anchor Stone Phillips in a cost-cutting move when his contract expires at the end of June.


    Phillips won't formally be replaced. His co-anchor, Ann Curry, will continue and other "Dateline NBC" reporters will serve as on-air hosts when the newsmagazine presents stories they're working on, the network said Tuesday.

    "It's been a wonderful 15 years," Phillips said in a statement issued by NBC. "I'm profoundly appreciative of the many friends and colleagues, past and present, who have been a part of the `Dateline' family. This is a great news division with a bright future. I wish the people of NBC News all the best."

    He didn't immediately return a call for further comment.

    Ohhhh my! I thought he'd be there forever! Maybe this is a good thing for him to get something better 'cause I'm sure his career is not over - just wondering where he'll show up.

    Does it matter who hosts Dateline? I used to like Mr. Phillips, but he doesn't seem to do much any more (unless I'm just not watching the right episodes).

    I think computer-generated "talking heads" would do as well.

    ^^^^What she said....^^^^ up there^^^^!

    Exactly, philamena...

    ( and by the way, philamena, I have noticed that if I just follow you around on the various threads here on our board at WS, I can save lots of WS space by just posting... "What she said..." after your posts.
    Thanks! )
