AceShowbiz - Rumor suggesting that %cKatie Couric% is interested in replacing %cBrian Williams% on "Nightly News" is false. Dismissing the report is Couric herself. The former "Today" host who now works for Yahoo! takes it to Twitter to set the record straight.
"Been out of pocket - any rumors about me and NBC completely untrue," the female anchor wrote to her online followers. "Wishing my friends at my former home the best during this tough time."
Williams takes temporary leave from NBC's "Nightly News" after he faced backlash for lying about coming under direct enemy fire in Iraq. He is now facing internal investigation at NBC as his credibility and that of the TV network where he works are called into question.
The newscaster also decides to cancel his scheduled appearance on "Late Show with David Letterman" where he once recounted the same story about his experience in Iraq. He was supposed to visit %cDavid Letterman% on Thursday, February 12.
