Deadline.com reports ABC News president Ben Sherwood gave a heck-no answer to the Television Critics Association on whether Katie Couric would do any fill-in work anchoring on ABC in the evening. “You’ll see her showcased in all kinds of different ways, but she’s done the anchoring thing in the evening,” he said.
“You’ll see her in the morning. You’ll see her all over the place.” After the TCA session, Sherwood went on defense about Couric’s demise in the CBS Evening News anchor chair. “I don’t think the viewers have rejected her,” he said. “It’s not about rejection. It’s about what she wants to do.”
