katie couric makes exit announcement from cbs evening news

No surprises here!

Yesterday, we heard that Katie Couric was expected to make an announcement regarding her decision to leave CBS Evening News this week, and sure enough, she did exactly that.

Here's what Katie had to say about her exit from program:

"I'm really proud of the talented team on the CBS Evening News and the award-winning work we've been able to do in the past five years in addition to the reporting I've done for 60 Minutes and CBS Sunday Morning. In making the decision to move on, I know the Evening News will be in great hands, but I am excited about the future."

"I am looking at a format that will allow me to engage in more multi-dimensional storytelling."

We respect your decision, Katie, and we'll look forward to hearing more details about your next move soon!

Do U think Katie's making the right move? Or should she have stuck with CBS Evening News?

  1. 1

    What did she do for CBS?



  2. 2

    There's always a Tijuana donkey show needing a new "hostess".



  3. 3

    She needs to take a long break from television. The world is sick of her.



  4. 4

    don't let the door hit you in the A_ _ .
    .
    go back to your morning show silliness
    .
    and drop out of 60 Minutes while you're at it PLEASE !

    they probably gave the option either you quit or your fired! She tries to play the cutesygirl and it's totally annoying!



  6. 6

    Thank God.

    it doesn't matter for liberal news outlets, rating will suck no matter what. liberals get their news from SNL and Comedy Central while conservatives prefer the truth from Fox News which more than triples the ratings from any other news station.



  8. 8

    She'll probably show up on Obama…er, Oprah's network.

    I liked Katie a lot. It was nice to FINALLY see an actual woman be the main anchor of a major news network. Brian Williams is so stiff and like a talking computer. Katie has class, intelligence and compassion. America is so conservative and still has a long long way to go. It's back to the on-line world for me.

    SESAME STREET HAS AN OPENING FOR ANOTHER LIBERAL PUPPETRe: Rubber Rat – EXCELLENT

    Ha Ha-"she is going to pursue a format that will allow her to pursue more multi-dimensional story telling" -Who talks like this-only an affected liberal who has spent her life spinning fictional stories that supports her political agenda.



  12. 12

    Right… Like she has a choice in the matter… Pulleeezzz… Bitch was fired.

    Re: Rubber Rat

    You are so WRONG to think she could get an interview with a drunken donkey!! WRONG WRONG WRONG………….. well….maybe the "other" position working with the donkey.

    "Storytelling" was a good word to use, considering that Couric had ZERO credibility as an "objective" journalist. There's a reason she didn't succeed, and it had nothing to do with her gender. However, it had everything to do with her biases–which she usually didn't even try to hide. You think Fox News is biased? Watch Couric's interviews with Bush Sr. or Jerry Falwell sometime. They don't hold a candle to her.



  15. 15

    OMG she is so past her prime it is sad. I will NOT miss her or her once cute girl next door schtick.



  16. 16

    there is something very unlikeable about her. her unlikeability has always been there and its hard to pinpoint why. maybe its her irritating voice or it could be that she is not very attractive. there is so much wrong with her all around package. im shocked that tv even gives her any chances.
