    NEW YORK - 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.

    I think he'll land on his feet somewhere.

    He was incredible doing the Gravitas-off against Colbert.

    Two words, NBC... Big. Mistake.

    He'll be at another network as soon as his contract officially runs out. Sad to see NBC News taking some of the network's fourth-place mentality. :)

    Maybe they're going to an all-Chris Hensen format and renaming the show DateMinors.
