Katie Couric on Wednesday confirmed numerous reports that she would leave NBC and join CBS, where she is set to become first solo female anchor in weekday evening network news history.

“I wanted to tell all of you out there who have watched the show for the past 15 years that after listening to my heart and my gut — two things that have served me pretty well in the past — I’ve decided I’ll be leaving ‘Today’ at the end of May,” she told viewers (http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/12167304/). “I really feel as if we’ve become friends through the years.”

Couric, 49, will replace Bob Schieffer on the “CBS Evening News,” beginning in September, CBS confirmed in a statement. As both anchor and managing editor of the program, which will bear her name, she will take on the responsibility of hoisting it from its current third-place ratings.
