As one chapter closes, another one opens, and this is certainly not the end for the news anchor. As we learn of Couric’s farewell to CBS News, Katie is looking to fulfill a more “multi-dimensional” area of interest. Girlfriend can do it all, and she’s doing it now!

Katie Couric goes on the record with her big announcement—yes, she is leaving CBS Evening News. After much speculation, the news anchor has decided to step down. In an exclusive interview with People magazine, Couric expresses her sincere gratitude to such an amazing CBS Evening News team. Not only was she able to cover outstanding work, but she was also given such supreme opportunity to have been able to report for 60 Minutes as well as CBS Sunday Morning. With her decision to move forward, she is “excited about the future”.

According to the mag, Katie is already “looking at a format that will allow her to engage in more multi-dimensional storytelling,” with more details to come soon.

For now, Couric remains busy doing what she loves…reporting the news. Between Prince William and Kate Middleton’s big royal wedding, interviews with Mark Kelly, Gabrielle Giffords, and British Minister David Cameron, along with her own book titled The Best Advice I Ever Got: Lessons from Extraordinary Lives, I’d say she has got her work cut out for her. Is there anything Katie can’t do? She is so incredibly talented!

The veteran anchor has also worked for NBC, a co-host for the Today Show.
