Katie Couric


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, "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.

I hope the liberal door that separated her lies from the real people hits her in the flabby azz on the way out. I also have to say, WOW she is only 54? I guess plastic surgery and Botox are not all they are said to be. Good luck Katie, I'm sure Soro's has a couch, er, spot for you.

Give it up Katie. No one cares where you go, they still won't watch. Boring.

"Multi-dimensional storytelling".

That must be code-speak for "more Lib lying". Yeah, you Libs love to tell the multi-dimensional fairy-tales.

katie, next time maybe you'll think twice about taping 6 hours of an interview with sarah palin and then showing only 4 minutes of a momentary lapse by the former alaskan governor.

yes, katie, you have served your socialist jewish masters well but the public with an IQ above 11 hates you. now you know that when the public hates you, you are toast.

Get a Nose Job, please!!!    

I have always liked "60... Minutes". Please, please, please don't put Bimbo Katie on it. It would be the death sentence of a great show.

Its about time. I watched one evening of CBS news with her and never watched it again. She got the job because she "knew" someone, not because she was actually qualified to report the news. Good by and good luck. Get a talk show where you give away cars and stuff and you will be very popular.

Let us know where Katie goes so we can change the channel to another program. Story telling is something new for her? Really? Isn't that what she has been doing on a journalistic level after all these years? Katie was one of the least objective journalists on the television. She always seem to have a preconceived notion and agenda to promote during her political interviews. Good riddance.

katie, if and when you do get an oprah-like show, host a show with george w. bush, sarah palin, and nancy pelosi...discuss how both bush and palin each sold more than 2 million copies of the last book they wrote....nancy pelosi sold exactly 4,732 copies or her last book.

no? that doesn't interest you... i didn't think so.

oh, about getting that next tv talk show, be sure to use your mouth AND your tongue in interviews with the brass at abc, cbs, and nbc.

Super liberal 'newsreaders' such he her usually follow the same trail. First to CNN then PBS/NPR. Perhaps Fatso Al Gore's network could give half of Kieth Olberman's desk for some of those refreshing bites liike, "Back to you, Kieth !"

Yeah, storytelling is what she is good at...but reporting the news...not so much.
