Katie Couric Negotiations With CBS Halt, Possibly For Good

With CBS Evening News anchor Katie Couric stepping down from her anchor role, TV network CBS was hoping to keep Couric on their payroll with a new syndicated talk show, however negotiations are now rumored to have ended without a happy ending for the network.

According to CBS insiders, Couric wanted a heavy hand in the company’s news operations, however executives were only willing to give her bit pieces on their news magazine show 60 Minutes.

At this time Katie will part ways with CBS and another rumor is pointing to ABC as the possible future home for Couric, her new syndicated talk show and more than likely some type of involvement in their news operations.

Come back to the Today Show Katie, it will give me a reason to wake up a bit earlier from Monday through Friday.
