Bye, Bye Katie???

The Wall Street Journal is reporting tonight that Katie Couric will leave the last-place CBS Evening News "well before her contract expires in 2011--possibly soon after the presidential inauguration early next year." CBS is denying the rumors.

This comes during a hard time for the big three evening newscasts, which have been gradually losing viewership to cable news channels and online news and blog sites, and for CBS in particular, which recently announced layoffs at its owned and operated stations due to low ratings and declining ad revenue.
