CBS And Couric May Split

CBS And Couric SplitIt troubles me to think that CBS may have dug so low for news sources that they may have been trolling at The Conservative Reader this week and took my comments about the Evening News to heart.

It seems that there is likely to be a parting of ways for Couric and CBS sometime after the Presidential Inaugural in 2009.  What is surprising is that CBS would continue to keep the low ratings they have experienced since shortly after the beginning of Couric’s tenure… reportedly, significantly below Bob Shieffer’s ratings while he acted as interim anchor after Dan Rather left the show.  An organization like CBS should be working aggressively, in my opinion, to shore up ratings even if it means taking drastic measures.  Including replacing Couric sooner rather than later.

Hat Tip to the Wall Street Journal.
