Katie-Couric_240.jpg Image Credit: Bob Charlotte/PR PhotosEW’s Lynette Rice reports that despite a flurry of rumors, CBS anchor Katie Couric has definitely not decided what she’s going to do when her contract expires in May. Some reports had speculated that she could be heading back to NBC’s Today show, but CBS Evening News — which remains mired in third place in the ratings — is still a prestigious position in journalism. And would she really want retread familiar ground at Today? What do you think Couric should do when May rolls around?

  • Do something different. The CBS gig has been good critically but I don’t see her getting out of 3rd place anytime soon. Going back Today would be too safe of a move IMO.

  • Jon

    Where’s the “go away and never come back” option?

    • Anne

      I also was looking for that option. You beat me to it.

    • L

      I was looking for that one as well.

    • Allison

      Oh, that’s the one I was looking for as well. I don’t know why, I’ve just never liked her. So many people talk about how “cute” she is, but I always think she looks like she’s trying to hard to be sexy and serious.

    Dancing With the Stars and then retirement.

    Go back to the Today Show and kick Meredith off the show!!!! Or if she doesn’t want to go back to the Today Show at least go over there and kick Meredith off the show!!! Basically I just want Meredith off the show!!

    • Sarah

      Agreed! Meredith is terrible on Today. And maybe I’m making this up for my own amusement, but I always sense some animosity between Meredith and Matt.

  • Dirk

    why can’t she be Larry King’s replacement instead of Piers? i like Piers mind you, but i can see Katie doing a great job with an interview. Look at what she did with Sarah Palin.

    • realneil

      Yeah, I’d like to see her interview Moose-Mamma another time.

  • Marlene

    Stay with CBS News, but move to 60 Minutes full time.

  • Tash

    I imagine that no one under the age of 60 watches anything but local news on TV–and that’s mainly for the weather and traffic reports. Ms. Vierra already has Couric’s old job. Can you imagine how much they’d all love moving a chair down if Couric returned? She’d have to watch her back all the time.
    So that leaves her to figure out something new. She has lots of money and her kids are around college age. Perfect time for the next phase.

  • realneil

    She should go on a cruise, and sight-see. Buy an outrageously expensive camera and shoot awesome pictures all over the world. Then publish a book with said photos in it.
    She should schedule a massage every day for a month.


    This is Katie Couric’s opportunity to cteate her own niche and whatever she does I’ll check it out. I’m predisposed to like her but that’s not a lifetime pass. She’s got the talent and the resources to pioneer something new rather than being the last of the old at CBS news.
