Couric Squeezes in “Idol” Stop During L.A. Trip

CBS Evening News anchor Katie Couric has made her Twitter followers, (including us) aware that she is jetting off to LA at this hour where she will receive a Walter Cronkite Award for Excellence in Television Political Journalism from the USC’s Annenberg School.

But, in what may be the highlight of the trip, she’ll be in the crowd for tonight’s American Idol taping.

Harry Smith will be filling in on the Evening News tonight while Maggie Rodriguez fills in tomorrow night.
