Seeking to put a bad five-year marriage to Katie Couric behind them, CBS News wasted no time in removing any and all reference to the now departed anchor from the network.
According to TVNewser the billboard outside the CBS Broadcast Center in New York featuring Couric’s picture was removed and replaced with one featuring various CBS news anchors, reporters and programs.
Insiders also told TVNewser that signage of Couric inside the building has been replaced as well.
CBS has also replaced “Katie Couric’s Notebook” with the “Reporters Notebook”which will feature Bob Schieffer, Lara Logan, Anthony Mason, John Blackstone and Chip Reid.
Yes the very same Bob Schieffer whom Couric replaced in 2006.
Couric signed off the air on Thursday night to little fanfare and unlike her first week when she lifted CBS News to first place, she finished dead last again.
So if you missed her sign off this week you are not alone, as most of America did as well.
