New NBC News president Steve Capus predicts that any announcement on Katie Couric‘s future “is a little bit down the road” because her contract is not up until spring 2006, USA Today reports.
Capus “said Couric called to congratulate him Tuesday and was ‘thrilled’ by his promotion, but he said he would not be taking part in contract negotiations with her. ‘This one is going to be handled upstairs, and I’m comfortable with that,’ Capus said.”
More: “But ‘the message to her is very clear: This has been her home, and a lot of people here care a lot about her, and we think the world of her talents. But after 15 years, she may want to do something different. That may be how it plays itself out.'”
