In a story appearing on “People” magazine’s website, Katie Couric has confirmed she’s leaving the anchor desk on the “CBS Evening News.”  The “People” story confirmed rumors that she would be leaving but doesn’t say what she plans to do next.   Couric didn’t reveal many details about her next move except to say she’d like to do more “multi-dimensional storytelling.”  She told “People” that she feels proud of the award-winning work she and the “CBS Evening News” team have done over the past five years.    Her last day on the job is expected to be June 4th. 

Couric became the first female solo anchor of a weeknight network newscast when she joined CBS in 2006 at annual salary of $15-million a year.   Couric also has done reporting for the CBS shows “60 Minutes” and “Sunday Morning.”  Before joining CBS, Couric was the co-host of NBC’s “The Today Show” from 1991 through 2006.

Who will replace Couric?  There are reports “60 Minutes” reporter Scott Pelley will take over the duties of the “CBS Evening News”.
