CBS Denies Report of Couric Exit

Apr 10, 2008  •  Post A Comment

CBS News denied a Wall Street Journal report saying Katie Couric would leave the network’s “Evening News” early next year, two years before her contract expires, because of low ratings, TelevisionWeek reports. CBS, whose “Evening News” is in third place among the network newscasts, has “no plans for any changes regarding Katie,” the magazine says, citing a statement from the network.

  1. Katie is a wonderful, talented broadcaster who needs to leave the Anchor Desk. The idea was a mistake from the first thought. It is not her fault, but she needs to be better utilized elsewhere.
    Mr. “L” “M” has earned and deserves the black mark for this, (and other CBS woes). Lord knows his ego will not be able, or willing, to stand up and admit the error of his decision. Someone else will have to leave his/her head at the Black Rock alter…but CBS News has gone beyond the eleventh hour and needs to pluck a new anchor from among their ranks immediately.
    It will interesting to see how this plays out…but play out it must…NOW.
    Murrow and Paley must be spinning in their graves.
