“Everyone Is Waiting For The Next Great Katie Moment”

Couric K.jpgAfter her now-famous interview of Gov. Sarah Palin, MarketWatch‘s Jon Friedman writes today, “I began to wonder fancifully whether she might finally put pressure on ABC’s Charles Gibson for the No.2 position, behind perennial ratings leader Brian Williams of NBC. But it hasn’t panned out that way.”

CBS News Executives, Friedman continues, “resent the implication that she hit a plateau with the Palin interview.”

“Katie delivers spectacular television and I think everyone is waiting for the next great Katie moment,” says CBS News SVP of Communications Jeff Ballabon. “I don’t think they’re waiting for the next Brian or Charlie moment…

“We’re in it for the long haul. That’s the bottom line.”
