Over the past months, rumors have been swirling that Couric would be leaving the position, due to problems in garnering big enough ratings and a wide audience.

Back in April, the Wall Street Journal put out a story which stated that Couric would likely leave CBS before the end of her contract, which expires in 2011. The story continued by saying it would be no surprise if she left before January 2009.

Katie Couric left her spot as one of the hosts of NBC’s Today, to take up the job as the evening news anchor.

It was later confirmed by the CBS News and Sports President, Sean McManus, that Couric was not going anywhere.
