Katie Couric, CBS News anchor and correspondent.
Katie Couric is pulling up the anchor and setting her ship on a new course.
She has not officially announced her plans but a network executive, who spoke on condition of anonymity Sunday night, reported that Couric is leaving her anchor post at "CBS Evening News."
Less than five years ago, she became the first woman to solely helm a network TV evening newscast.
“The 54-year-old anchor is expected to launch a syndicated talk show in 2012 and several companies are vying for her services,” according to the report by the Associated Press.
More details are expected to be released today.
