Below is video of Katie Couric’s final minutes as anchor of CBS Evening News. Her last broadcast was today. There is speculation that Couric has reached a deal with ABC for a syndicated talk show, which CBS has the right to match. (UPDATE: I hear she is in advanced negotiations.) Couric’s successor at CBS Evening News, Scott Pelley, starts June 6.
