I just read in the Newspaper that News anchor women Katie Couric of the CBS Evening News may not be returning for another season of the Evening News.

This is a little disappointing, I like watching her show, she is better than Charles Gibson and Brain Williams in my opinion. She is different, charismatic and a good reporter.

Katie Couric was set up to fail when she took the job. Though she pulled in the audience for the Today Show, it's a different crowd of viewers that watches the evening news. Most would prefer a grim and somber old guy over some perky cheerleader whereas the opposite is true for the morning audience.

I guess so, but she doesn't exactly act perky and cheerleader-ish

Yes, she does. She looks like an overage cheerleader when she's reading the news. I keep waiting for her to bring out the pom-poms.

Supposedly she is being wooed by CNN to work there, and will be groomed to take Larry King's job someday. By then, she may be as old as he was when he started. She also may get a talk show on CNN until that day she can take King's place.

First post ever in the People forum (or at least as far as I can remember)
Now to comment on Katie Couric...





I do not watch CBS Evening News anymore, and I don't watch any of the Big 3 Evening News. They are all similar and very boring. It is a shame because that is the only type of news that many people get for their news coverage.




Katie Couric ended up being very grouchy (at least in 200 but I don't blame her entirely...I like CBS News much less. I remember when Dan Rather retired and I read about how Dan Rather did not agree that everything was his fault.

YES!!! I hate Kate! She's such a liberal and feminist, plus I don't think she's half decent. I never enjoyed her on the Today show either. She has horrible hairstyles and I hate how she talks. Puts me to sleep in a bad way. Please put someone else on! PLEASE!
