Katie Couric most likely leaving CBS Evening News

It’s not exactly official yet, but all signs point to Katie Couric leaving her CBS Evening News position for good.  Couric is said to have found her role as anchor too restrictive, and she wants to branch out and try to do her own show, perhaps a talk show where she can control the content and the tone.

But that doesn’t mean she’s necessarily leaving the network itself – in fact, CBS is one of the main networks Katie’s in talks with to get a syndicated show under way.  She’s also talking to other networks like CNN and NBC, so it’ll be interesting to see who offers her a deal she likes.
