Katie Couric/CBS Negotiation -- DEAD!

5/4/2011 3:24 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Katie Couric's negotiations with CBS to stay at the network to do a syndicated talk show are officially dead -- not gonna happen ... this according to plugged-in sources at CBS.

Our sources say the breakdown occurred because CBS was unwilling to give Katie substantial involvement in the network's news operation.  We're told CBS honchos were willing to give Katie pieces for "60 Minutes," but nothing more -- and Katie wasn't having it.

As a result, Katie will make a clean break from CBS and will not be doing a syndicated show for the network.

We're told ABC is now the likely future home for K.C.

Hello,
All that really give a rats-ass about this women please raise your right hand. She was constantly at the bottom in ratings in the time she was at CBS, but then again it is no wonder. When you are told what to say about the President, and you are told constantly why, and how to do your job--WELL THAT COULD POSSIBLY BE THE BIGGEST REASON WHY HER JOB SUCKED SO BADLY WHILE SHE WAS AT CBS.
