Katie Couric

I'm LEAVING CBS News

4/26/2011 3:43 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Katie Couric has finally made it official -- announcing moments ago that she's decided to "step down" from her post at the "CBS Evening News."

Katie Couric Leaving CBS

Couric told People.com, "In making the decision to move on, I know the Evening News will be in great hands, but I am excited about the future."

As for Couric's future in TV, she added, "I am looking at a format that will allow me to engage in more multi-dimensional storytelling."

Couric insists the details -- including which network she will land with -- are "still being discussed."

As TMZ previously reported, she is talking with CBS about a possible daytime syndicated show ... in addition in continuing with the news division -- probably "60 Minutes."

Couric's contract is up in June -- it's likely she won't leave the show until then.

TMZ broke the story -- Katie's replacement will be "60 Minutes" correspondent Scott Pelley -- we're told that announcement will be made sometime around May 6.

Well it's to bad she's not a Republican because she would be perfect for fox news, huh? Fox news is just a mouth piece for Republicans and all they do is make crap up 24/7.

What did she do to Sarah Palin besides ask her questions? It ain't her fault Palin didn't know the answers

First of all, Katie does not like Sarah so she purposely had her booked so she could disrespect her and make fun of her basically. There is a video of Katie making fun of Sarah's childrens names and the city in which Sarah lives. I could say a few things about an arrogant 60 some year old who still goes by the name "Katie". It was disrespectful and uncalled for. Just because she does not agree with Sarah's ideologies, does not mean that she has to get Sarah on the show and degrade her. It does not make "Katie" look good. She looked worse then she was trying to make Sarah look.

Bill O'Reilly interviewed Obama and it aired the same day as the Superbowl. Bill asked him if he liked football and idiots on the Bill Maher show was calling Bill O'Reilly a racist. Not to mention the idiot Joy Behar that walked out of the room because Bill said something she did not agree with. This coming from an idiot that thinks Black Friday is called that for racial reasons.

Au revoir Katie..finally! Goes to show how out of touch the network is to put this opinionated, overpriced, out-of-touch, pushy broad in the anchor desk. She was never believable...

You dont even WATCH Fox do you? If you did, then you would KNOW that there are Democrats and liberals that are employed at Fox and have their own shows on Fox.

Remember when Juan Williams got fired from NPR, who is a LIBERAL radio station? He is a LIBERAL and he also works for Fox. Juan said on Bill O'Reilly's show that he feels uncomfortable on a plane when he sees middle eastern people come aboard. The next day he was fired from NPR. He was not even on NPR's clock. I guess so much for free speech. Bill O'Reilly was very sad when Juan was on his show the day after he had gotten fired and Fox picked him up full time.

There are Democratic Senators, judges, and liberal celebs on Fox all of the time. Whoopi was on Bill O'Reilly a couple of weeks ago. David Schwimmer was just on as well as James Caan and yes even Jon Stewart. I guess they must lie too, huh?

You really need to stop being a follower and become a leader and actually think for yourself.

She wants to "engage in more multi-dimensional storytelling". Is that her way of saying 1) she plans to continue fabricating the news; 2) that, gotcha techniques weren't satisfying enough; 3) or, perhaps she's an alien from another dimension.

Ms. Couric (if that's your real name), it's not multi-dimensional and it's not storytelling. It's the NEWS, or at least it was "Once upon a time".
