Katie Couric was chided by David Letterman this week for thinking of leaving her job as anchor of the CBS Evening News.
“It’s not like it’s a temp gig,” Letterman told Couric, reminding her that other anchors “ride into the sunset.”
For Couric, the sun apparently sets around 2 p.m. Don’t blame her, though. That anchor seat has lost a lot of value since it was occupied by Walter Cronkite and Dan Rather. In fact, a case could be made that Couric traded down when she left NBC’s “Today” for CBS.
