Katie Couric is popping up all over the place. The highest paid news anchor will make her final appearance as the host of CBS’ Evening News with Katie Couric on May 19 and then she’ll hop right across Manhattan to the Good Morning America studios in Times Square to start a new gig, reports the New York Post.
Ann Curry will step up from Today show newsreader to co-host when Meredith Vieria ends her five-year run, ending an era for the longtime NBC morning program with the promotion of a face that’s very familiar to viewers.
Sad news for fans of Today — Meredith Vieira may be leaving the popular show. TVGuide.com reports, “Vieira has been in discussions with NBC News executives for several months about extending her deal, which is up in September. But the co-anchor is said to be weary of the demanding early morning hours and is ready to move on.”
