Katie Couric Quits CBS Evening News for Talk Show?

Katie CouricRumors have been swirling ever since she took the helm of CBS   the past few weeks that Katie Couric is leaving CBS.   The Associated Press now reports the anchor is taking off once her contract expires with CBS this summer  to fill Oprah’s spot in the daytime talk show lineup.

The AP says a network executive, who spoke on condition of anonymity because Couric hasn’t officially announced her plans, reported the move Sunday night.

No departure date has been set, but Couric’s contract expires in early June. She is now expected to launch a syndicated talk show in 2012, and several companies — including CBS — are reportedly vying for her services.  Katie Couric became the first woman to helm a nightly news broadcast when she took over for Dan Rather in 2006.

What are your thoughts?  Would you like to see Katie Couric as the next talk show queen, or should she stay at the CBS evening news?

According to the suit,  Britney and her dad defrauded Brand Sense by entering into a secret deal with Elizabeth Arden, allegedly robbing Brand Sense of millions in the marketing of her perfume, Radiance.

The suit claims Brand Sense caught dad, Jamie Spears,  “red-handed” in circumventing their deal.

It’s been a tough week for Spears who announced a tour with singer Enrique Iglesias, who said later on that he would be performing solo.
