Katie Couric is to leave CBS Evening News.
“I have decided to step down from the CBS Evening News,” Couric tells PEOPLE magazine. “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.”
Katie, who’s contract expires in June, has been hosting CBS Evening News since September 2006.
