Guests included Katie Couric, who will anchor the CBS Evening News tonight. What you won’t hear on the Evening News going forward is the Cronkite voiceover which was added when Couric took over the broadcast in 2006. CBS News has retired the announce “effective immediately.”

Also on “Early”, ABC’s Charles Gibson live from Massachusetts, NBC’s Brian Williams and Tom Brokaw by phone; Morley Safer, Lesley Stahl, Bob Schieffer, and Sony Chairman Sir Howard Stringer who rose through the ranks at CBS News ultimately becoming news division president.

Gibson was also a guest on his network’s “Good Morning America”, just as Brian Williams and Tom Brokaw appeared on “Today.”
