    Katie Couric leaving CBS Evening News

    http://www.cnn.com/2011/SHOWBIZ/TV/0...cbs/index.html

    Not clear if she is leaving the CBS entirely. I never thought she was a good "fit" for that network. Wishing her the best of luck.

    It's been going on the rumor mill for quite sometime now but today I guess it's official. Never liked her in evening news format. I think she needs to rediscover herself and go back to her roots.

    Bob Schieffer got higher ratings than couric in the interim period between Rather and Couric! I can't get over that fact. People liked him he had the evening news quality that Couric never had at all! Maybe Pellley will have that quality.

    Not that surprised. As others have said, it wasn't the right fit for Katie at all.

    Wish her luck in the next stage of her career.

    I never thought she was anchor material. OTOH, I don't think Scott Pelley is, either.
    Trolling dates all the way back to 397 B.C. - People began following Plato around and would make fart noises after everything he said.

    Who is Scott Pelley? I don't recognize the name. Okay, okay - I'll go google it.

    ETA - Ah, I recognize the face although I don't watch 60 Minutes much any more. I'll give him a chance.
    3539 and counting.

    You must not watch 60 Minutes.

    And was probably paid half, a fifth, one-tenth? of her $15 million/yr.
