Three, two, one . . . .
On Tuesday, Katie Couric officially becomes the new face of CBS News. She'll anchor the revamped "CBS Evening News With Katie Couric," with a new set, new graphics and new theme music. She's also set to contribute to CBS' "60 Minutes," CBS Radio and the network's digital offerings.
CBS has spent tons of money (reportedly $10 million) to promote Couric. Four months ago, she left her long-time gig as co-host of the popular NBC Today Show. Details from The Associated Press and USA Today.
CBS plans to broadcast its evening news program live on the Internet. CBS, which said it will be the first network to simulcast its evening news on the Web, hopes the move will attract a wider audience.
