Will she or won’t she be the next anchor of the CBS Evening News? Only Katie Couric knows for sure. My take: I’ll believe it when I see it.
But this nonsense…
…I don’t buy for a minute. For starters, this “industry leader” either didn’t watch or completely forgot the ABC News 20/20 interview that aired several hours after Bryant Gumbel signed off from CBS’ The Early Show for the final time. In the interview, he essentially said he wouldn’t be on TV five days a week again.
I think it’s safe to say he’s happy with his current TV gig (HBO’s Real Sports), wife #2 (Hilary Quinlan) and the occasional guest host appearance (Live with Regis and Kelly).
I’d like to know what this industry leader’s been smoking; either (s)he needed to quit it or share it.
