Report: Katie Couric to leave CBS Evening News
Couric, the first woman to solely anchor a nightly network newscast, is expected to step down from her post when her contract expires in June to start a syndicated talk show in 2012. She told The New York Times on Monday that she and former NBC boss Jeff Zucker have been "discussing the possibilities" of a talk show.
Pelley, who's worked at CBS for 21 years, was one of three names floated by The Associated Press Monday as replacement candidates, along with Harry Smith and Russ Mitchell.
