Katie Couric to leave Today Show

Katie Couric announced today that she will be leaving her position as co-host of NBC's Today Show to take a major position at CBS News. Couric who became 'Americas sweetheart' during her 15 years as Today's female lead, will replace Bob Schieffer as host of The CBS Evening News and contribute to that networks venerable 60 Minutes news program. While Katies established TV persona doesn't exactly fit the traditional model of a national evening news anchor, lets not forget that both Walter Cronkite and Tom Brokaw had also been morning show hosts before assuming their now iconic news anchor status. As rumors of Katies departcher for CBS had been floating around for about a year it is expected that NBC will be announcing her replacement on Today in the very near future.
