Sarah Palin Washington, Apr 27 (ANI): Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin took a dig on CBS Evening News’ anchor Katie Couric ahead of the latter’s announcement that she is quitting.

On being asked to comment about Couric’s departure, Palin said “Yea, I think I read that in a newspaper-one of many newspapers that I read, online.”

“And yea, I hear that she wants to now engage in more multi-dimensional story-telling, versus, I guess, just the straight-on reading-into-that-teleprompter-screen story-telling. So, more power to her. I wish her well with her multi-dimensional story telling,” Palin added.

CBS News had earlier said in a statement: “There’s a lot to be proud of during Katie Couric’s time at the CBS Evening News. CBS News, like Katie herself, is looking forward to the next chapter.”

With the start of “CBS Evening News with Katie Couric” on September 5, 2006, Couric became the first female solo anchor of a weekday network evening news broadcast. (ANI)
