Katie Couric confirms she's leaving 'CBS Evening News'

NEW YORK (AP) - Katie Couric has confirmed that she's leaving
her anchor job at the "CBS Evening News."
Couric also told People magazine in a story published Tuesday on
its website that she hasn't decided what she's doing next. But she
says she is "looking at a format that will allow me to engage in
more multi-dimensional storytelling."
The Associated Press reported three weeks ago that Couric's
tenure as CBS anchor would end just short of five years in the job.
Her contract expires June 4.
CBS has not set an exit date but is expected to appoint Scott
Pelley of "60 Minutes" as her successor as early as next week.
Couric was unable to move the "CBS Evening News" out of third
place in the ratings.
