NBC's Couric could become anchor for 'CBS Evening News'
Katie Couric, long-time co-host and star of NBC's "Today" show, is reportedly about to switch networks and trade in morning talk for the anchor's chair.
The Washington Post and USA Today both report on their Web sites that negotiators for Couric and CBS have reached a tentative deal. The reports say Couric will succeed Bob Schieffer as anchor of the "CBS Evening News" and become a regular on "60 Minutes." The CBS news broadcast is currently in third place. The deal would make Couric the first solo female network news anchor.
Speculation about the move has been rampant for nearly a year. The two networks haven't commented on the latest reports.
