CBS pulls the plug on Katie Couric talk show

The headline:  Katie Couric good as gone? CBS reportedly pulls offer to produce her syndicated talk show

The summary:  CBS has reportedly pulled its offer to produce a Katie Couric talk show after announcing that she’ll step down from the anchor desk of the CBS Evening News.

The reaction:  CBS claims that the negotiation went on way too long and now it looks as if Couric could bolt to ABC for her show.

This has to be considered a big loss for CBS as a syndicated daytime talk show could have been a ratings gold mine especially in light of Oprah Winfrey wrapping up her show.
