Katie Couric - Katie Couric Offered 60 Minutes Job

Katie Couric has been offered the chance to become a regular correspondent on '60 Minutes'.Katie Couric, the American news anchor who is stepping down from her evening job on Cbs, has been offered to chance to join '60 Minutes' as a regular correspondent, reports the New York Post.A regular spot on the Sunday night show is reportedly part of the package being offered to Couric if she'll agree to stay and front a daytime talk show for Cbs. Her current deal with the network expires in June 2011. Couric began producing interviews and behind-the-scenes stories for '60 Minutes' when the program attempted to branch out from its 22-minute evening newscast and now the show's bosses are keen to offer the 54-year-old something permanent. A spokesman for Couric last night declined to comment on the specifics of the offer from '60 Minutes', but did say, "Katie's on vacation this week. Hopefully, the speculation about Katie can take a week off, too".
Meanwhile, rumours concerning Katie Couric's 'Evening News' successor have begun to circulate, with '60 Minutes' own Scott Pelley emerging as the possible frontrunner.

Why not give Maggie Rodreguiz the cbs evening news? She is far and above Katie Couric as a news lady. She is missed! Cbs did a big time error when they let David Price and Maggie Rodreguiz go. Harry is a wonderful newsman too, but he is still seen at times, although he is missed as a regular. The new people on the cbs good morning show speak way too fast, so we switched to gma in the morning.

Katie Couric blends investigative journalism with a humaneness that is lacking in our culture. We need many more like her.

CBS should keep Katie on their newscast. Her integrity and professionalism are paramount. If she leaves I may have to find a different broadcast.

Katie Couric is blood thirsty and is a wolf in sheep's clothing when it comes to interviewing. She should do very well on 60 minutes.

She's terrible period. Just another ulta elitist whose ingenuine concern for anything she covers comes off as fraudulent at best. If sinking 60 Minutes doesn't matter to CBS, here's your girl...

If she is on 60 minutes, I will never watch that show again. I am not a fan of Sarah Palin, but what Ms. Couric did to her in her on air interview is unforgiveable. Wherever she lands, I WILL NOT WATCH..... EVER
