“The search is on” for a worthy successor, writes the Daily Beast’s Howard Kurtz... Among those mentioned is "CBS lifer" Scott Pelley, a 21 year veteran correspondent now assigned to 60 Minutes. The L.A. Times blogged "odds are the network won’t have to worry about him eyeing his next big deal or wondering what else is on the horizon.”
"CBS just announced that actors James Franco and Anne Hathaway will be replacing Katie Couric as anchor of the CBS Evening News... 'Because the news itself isn't nearly as important as the people telling it to us.'"
