54-year-old Couric has been the anchor of CBS’ Evening News since 2006. Prior to joining CBS, Couric was the permanent co-host of “The Today Show,” on NBC for over ten years. When she started anchoring the Evening News, she became the first solo female anchor of a weekday evening news program to ever lead one of the three major broadcast networks in the United States.
Couric may be considering leaving in June, reports the LA Times. Her contract expires in June, and rumor has it that Scott Pelley will be taking her position.
But why is she leaving? One rumor is that she is heading back over to NBC to create and host her own talk show. Another rumor is that her 60 Minutes correspondent position will become her full time job.
Do you believe the rumor that Couric is leaving CBS? Would you like to see her host her own talk show or join 60 Minutes full time?
