Posted on 04/26/2011 12:23:26 PM PDT by Justaham
After weeks of widespread speculation about her future, Katie Couric is finally ready to go on the record.
"I have decided to step down from the CBS Evening News," Couric tells PEOPLE exclusively. "I'm really proud of the talented team on the CBS Evening News and the award-winning work we've been able to do in the past five years in addition to the reporting I've done for 60 Minutes and CBS Sunday Morning. In making the decision to move on, I know the Evening News will be in great hands, but I am excited about the future."
What's next for the 32-year broadcast veteran? "I am looking at a format that will allow me to engage in more multi-dimensional storytelling," she says, adding that other details, including when and where the show will air, are "still being discussed."
As she launches the next phase of her career and her new book, The Best Advice I Ever Got: Lessons from Extraordinary Lives, she is also juggling exclusive interviews with astronaut Mark Kelly, husband of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, as well as British Prime Minister David Cameron and she's covering the royal wedding.
"The bottom line is that I love doing all kinds of different stories," says Couric, 54. "I have a lot of areas of interest and I want to be able to fulfill all of that."

COUNTDOWN TO COURIC’s departure.
Bull burgers,,, her contract didn’t get renewed..
“I am looking at a format that will allow me to engage in more multi-dimensional storytelling”
MORE, you lying SOS?????
She was at CBS? Who Knew?
One more time into the breech!
Lying to the very last ...
Funny how they imply she’s leaving to pursue other interests instead of due to her crappy ratings.
I was wondering why she hasn’t been on the Today Show lately.
Any bets on whether she becomes the next press secretary for imam obama?
well...at least she left CBS better than she found it...oh wait, never mind.
Multi-dimensional storytelling? What does that even mean?
Multi-dimensional liberal storytelling, I bet.
Don’t let the door hit your perky little butt.
Hey Katie. The American people left you years ago. Notice your ratings lately? You are an embarrassment on so many levels.
She’ll be joining Olberman on the “Current” network.
