The LATimes’ Matea Gold has the scoop from CBS’s presentation in front of the TCA, during which Katie Couric‘s future with the network came up.

“We have no plans to part company any time soon,” Couric said. “And there were a lot of speculative pieces that I think got, quite frankly, spun out of control.”

Couric and CBS News President Sean McManus both said that media reports suggesting that she planned to leave the third-place CBS Evening News after the election or the next presidential inauguration if the ratings don’t improve were wrong. “That is not true,” McManus said.

Couric referred to talks she had with CBS executives earlier this year about her future on the broadcast. “Couric and the network officials agreed to table any decision until after the presidential election,” Gold writes.
