Katie Couric Leaving "CBS Evening News"

4/4/2011 9:57 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Katie Couric, the first woman ever to anchor a network news broadcast by herself, will be leaving her post at "CBS Evening News" after less than five years on the job, this according to reports.

Katie Couric Leaving CBS
Speculation has been going on for some time that Couric would bolt, and now a network exec tells the AP that is the case, though no official date has been set. Her contract is up June 4.

It's expected Couric will move on to host her own syndicated show.

Good!

She is the most unprofessional and biased anchor out of all the major news networks. The amount of news she omits and how she manipulates what they do cover is unbelievable.

I've had enough of this skank too. She owes Palin for giving her some spot light for her spiraling career. Other than that she's fell flat on her plastic face.

Reports say she would bolt? C'mon...if bolting means getting a boot in your arse out the door, then I guess she bolted.

I'm not sure your gal, Sarah, would remember it quite like that. While I'm a fan of neither, Couric's interview of Failin' was among the first to expose that woman for what she truly is - a complete fraud.

Just another really stupid idea of CBS. Katie was a tiny bit better than the HATER Dan Rather, but just a lightweight News "Reader" with zero personality. Hopefully she will just fade away, and CBS will just scrap their News hour and put on some animated cartoon instead?

I don't know why they ever paid her what they did in the first place. It's been a train wreck from the beginning.

...the lead detail is wrong. Pauline Frederick anchored ABC's earliest evening news for a spell circa '50 or '51. Of course, nobody watched, so nobody noticed...

Katie Couric needs to get more character if she wants to stay on top. She's become boring. Maybe it's the because of all the censoring of news by big bosses? I don't know but she's lost appeal.
