Katie CouricIf Katie Couric decides not to re-up her CBS News contract when it expires in May, she has plenty of other options.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the former 'Today' show host is being approached by multiple syndication companies to host her own daytime talk show.

Is it possible that CBS might just cancel the Evening News instead of replace Couric?

It is highly expected that one day, ABC, NBC and CBS will no longer have a nightly 6:30-7pm newscast. Will CBS be the 1st to move on it?
