Katie says goodbye to Today

Katie says goodbye to Today 1With Matt Lauer bringing the box of tissues, the “Today” show threw a going-away party Wednesday for 15-year host Katie Couric, who is leaving to become the next anchor of the “CBS Evening News.” Co-host Lauer placed the tissue box on the desk at the show’s opening, saying “this is not for you, this for me.”

Couric’s long goodbye began April 5, the 15th anniversary of her first day as Bryant Gumbel’s co-host on “Today,” when she announced that she would be leaving to accept CBS’ offer to replace Bob Schieffer on the evening news. She said the time was right for a new challenge.
