Doomed-from-the-start Evening News anchor Katie Couric and her record-low ratings may be parting ways with CBS well before the expiration of her $15-million-per-year contract. Inked to stay on board through 2011, the once-maven of morning television has had an extraordinarily rough go in evening news since she signed on to replace interim anchor Bob Schieffer-who had sat in for Dan Rather after the Bush National Guard affair-in June 2006.

The Wall Street Journal speculates that Couric may depart as early as January-once the aftermath of the presidential election simmers-and could potentially fill the benign interviewer seat of 74-year-old Larry King (who, as a side note, recently got tossed from his son's little league game).

CBS denies the break-up rumors in The LA Times.
