Katie Couric said to be happier on the road; CBS reported searching for her replacement as anchor

Daily Beast columnist Howard Kurtz says CBS is looking to replace Katie Couric in the anchor chair. He writes:

"Katie Couric is feeling liberated.
Not because she is nearing the end of her five-year contract as CBS anchor—although there’s an unexpected plot twist on that front—but because she’s been spending less time in the studio. You can hear it in her voice.
“'It’s great for me to get out of the chair and into the world,' she says. 'I started out as a reporter, and I still enjoy reporting.'
"Rick Kaplan, her executive producer, says that 'when she’s on the road—in Iraq with David Petraeus—she has a great way with people. People like her and she likes them. There are anchors who consider being on the road a pain in the butt. She really looks for opportunities to feel the earth and touch people.'"
