Katie Couric has been offered the chance to become a regular correspondent on '60 Minutes'.Katie Couric, the American news anchor who is stepping down from her evening job on CBS, has been offered to chance to join '60 Minutes' as a regular correspondent, reports the New York Post.A regular spot on the Sunday night show is reportedly part of the package being offered to Couric if she'll agree to stay and front a daytime talk show for Cbs. Her current deal with the network expires in June 2011. Couric began producing interviews and behind-the-scenes stories for '60 Minutes' when the program attempted to branch out from its 22-minute evening newscast and now the show's bosses are keen to offer the 54-year-old something permanent. A spokesman for Couric last night declined to comment on the specifics of the offer from '60 Minutes', but did say, "Katie's on vacation this week. Hopefully, the speculation about Katie can take a week off, too".
Meanwhile, rumours concerning Katie Couric's 'Evening News' successor have begun to circulate, with '60 Minutes' own Scott Pelley emerging as the possible frontrunner.
