Couric to Leave CBS Newscast Next Week

Friday, 13 May 2011 07:14 PM

 


NEW YORK (AP) — Katie Couric will make her exit from the "CBS Evening News" next Thursday.

The network on Friday announced her exit date. She'll be leaving short of five years as CBS' top anchor, and shy of the June 4 expiration date of her contract. Scott Pelley will take over as the new "CBS Evening News" anchor on June 6.

Couric hasn't announced her next move, but has been looking at a daytime talk show and discussing her future with ABC News.

Couric's executive producer at the evening news for the past four years, Rick Kaplan, this week took a new job overseeing political coverage at ABC News and producing Christiane Amanpour's Sunday morning political show.
