When Katie Couric jokingly asked for help with a new catch-phrase signoff as the new anchor of the “CBS Evening News,” she never expected 50,000 people to come forward with suggestions.
Couric made the appeal on her first broadcast last month, and has since been flooded with responses from viewers. She revealed some of the ideas she was pitched on an appearance she made Thursday night on CBS’ “Late Show” with David Letterman.
Her favorite, she told Letterman, was “Here, kitty kitty kitty.”
Another winner made light of Couric’s former post at NBC’s “Today” show: “Thanks for watching,” she said. “I’m Katie Couric, and I’m not just for breakfast anymore.”
