CNN Wants Katie Couric!

| Filed under: TV NewsKatie Couric

cnn wants katie couric to join their network

CNN really wants you, Katie Couric, and it looks like they're willing to make the effort to steal you away from CBS and win you over!

Jeff Bewkes, the CEO of CNN's parent company Time Warner has said that CNN has the money "to pay for some of the biggest talent in TV news…"

Here's what the head of CBS, Les Moonves, had to say about it:

"The Katie Couric deal will be the last big deal of that kind ever done. Those days are over."

More from Moonves:

"People are getting the news elsewhere. When there were only three networks, you did have that public service component, where we were informing America. Now, there is nothing that Katie Couric is saying that everybody doesn't know already."

CNN's Bewkes doesn't seem to be on the same wavelength. When asked if he's putting a cap on salaries for talent, here's what he had to say:

"Absolutely not. Let the word go out."

Should be inneresting to say how this plays out.

We're thinking we'll be seeing Couric on CNN, sooner than later.

Do U think Katie Couric will make the move to CNN?

    Does she have EXPERIENCE using the Floor Buffers or will she start Entry Level On-The-Job-Training?

    Les Moonves wants her? That means if she doesn't take the job we'll be subjected to his wife Julie Chen in yet another venue.

    That dress is hugely unflattering to Katie. She needs to find a better stylist. It really emphasizes her "boxy" shape….

    I think CNN wants to fun itself outta business.

    CNN is worried b/c Fox cable news is beating them big ime in the ratings. Katie Couric is not exactly the best choice b/c she has the worst record amongst the 3 major networks. CNN should just stick to unbiased news reporting and stop leaning to te left side and leave it to Fox and MSNBC to battle it out. Then maybe their ratings will go up.

    Why do old chicks think they can expose their poofy upper bodies, and think it looks ok? If she worked out like Mz Obama, she might carry it off.
    She looks like a Pillsbury Dough puppet.

    Why would anyone want to watch her anywhere else? She still is not a newscaster, just a propagandist for the Dems. she's a mean-faced, two-faced conceited shill.
