Katie Couric is celebrating her second anniversary as anchor of the CBS Evening News . In an interview with the Baltimore Sun , Couric acknowledged, "It's been, quite candidly, pretty tough some of the time for me in my new job." Noting that her ratings are up in Baltimore and a few other mid-sized markets, Couric said, "To see us gaining and making strides in some of these major markets is wonderful news." Asked about persistent rumors that she plans to step down after the inauguration, Couric replied, "I have no plans to leave. I want to do the best job I possibly can for CBS News. I care about our newscast and my colleagues, and I have no plans to split."
