Katie Couric Announces She's Leaving 'CBS Evening News'

Katie Couric has officially announced that she will be leaving 'CBS Evening News', after nearly five years at the anchor desk.

"I have decided to step down from the CBS Evening News," Couric says in a statement. "I'm really proud of the talented team on the CBS Evening News and the award-winning work we've been able to do in the past five years in addition to the reporting I've done for 60 Minutes and CBS Sunday Morning."

"In making the decision to move on, I know the Evening News will be in great hands, but I am excited about the future."

CBS is expected to appoint Scott Pelley of '60 Minutes' as her successor as early as next week.

As for what the future holds, Couric hints at a possible talk show: "I am looking at a format that will allow me to engage in more multidimensional storytelling."

"The bottom line is that I love doing all kinds of different stories. I have a lot of areas of interest and I want to be able to fulfill all of that."

Katie Couric left NBC's 'Today' in 2006 for CBS, which offered her nearly $15 million a year. Her contract with the network expires on June 4.
