Couric Thought “Trying To Invigorate” Evening News Was Worth It

Katie Couric was interviewed by Dr. Gail Saltz on stage at the 92nd Street Y last night. Here are a few notable quotes from The Hollywood Reporter:

> “I’ve never really obsessed over ratings. I want to turn out a quality newscast.”

> “I knew that this was a genre that wasn’t going to be as strong as it was in the past. (But) somehow I thought it was a genre worth trying and trying to reinvigorate.”

> “People are very accustomed to their newscast playing out in a certain way.”

> “I think we’ll be able to experiment down the road.”
