The Ticker: Couric, Koppel, Sciutto…

> B&C’s Marisa Guthrie caught up with CBS CEO Les Moonves who is once again throwing his support behind Katie Couric: “I’m a patient man. And no one has a gun to their head.”

> Soup Cans notes an exchange between Ted Koppel and John McCain foreign policy director Randy Scheunemann during an NPR Talk of the Nation segment in which Koppel tries to get some Sarah Palin answers and feels strong pushback. “I live in Maryland, that doesn’t make me an expert on Pennsylvania or Virginia,” Koppel says at one point.

> ABC’s Jim Sciutto (profiled here yesterday) will be talking about his new book “Against US” at New York’s Columbia Journalism School tonight. The event begins at 7pm at Lecture Hall and is free and open to the public.
