New Face On CBS’ NFL Halftime Show: Katie Couric

Katie Couric showed up on the CBS’ halftime show set tonight, but it wasn’t to discuss the Baltimore Ravens’ lack of offense. James Brown introduced Couric (“a friend”) as she presented a short package about President-elect Barack Obama‘s day today. “It’s great to be here, hey J.B.,” said Couric. She also previewed CBS’ Tuesday plans, including the 9pm special, “Change and Challenge”:
