Couric Out, Pelley In At CBS News
According to reports this morning Katie Couric is really leaving the CBS News Anchor desk, it’s a done deal. Who will replace her? CBS News Chairman Jeff Fager has the perfect man for the job, 60 Minutes correspondent Scott Pelley.
The only thing left now is the transition, which has to be handled delicately, as the CBS head honchos don’t want to offend Katie in hopes that she will stay with the network, in another capacity, and maintain a “presence” at CBS News.
