CBS Devoting Most Of Two EN’s To “Cancer: Cures, Costs and Controversies”

The bulk of tonight and tomorrow night’s CBS Evening News with Katie Couric will consist of a series called “Cancer: Cures, Costs and Controversies.”

It’ll start with Bill Plante‘s report about Tony Snow… followed by a Couric package (“what is cancer, exactly?”)… next, Dr. Jon LaPook reports on “the most promising cures currently available…” then Couric interviews Dr. Steven Rosenberg, director of the National Cancer Institute, “about what is down the road in terms of treatments…” after that, Anthony Mason will look at the costs of cancer treatments… and Daniel Sieberg has helpful Internet resources… and finally, Kelly Wallace asks: “how can you cut the odds?”

Whew. At the end of the show, Lara Logan has an animal story from South Africa…
