As forecasted by the rumor mills, Katie Couric, 54, has confirmed that she will be leaving the desk as anchor for "CBS Evening News," telling People Magazine that she is "looking at a format that will allow me to engage in more multi-dimensional storytelling." Couric's five-year contract was set to expire in early June.

No exit date has been set, and no future plans for Couric have been announced. "60 Minutes" correspondent Scott Pelley is expected to be appointed as her replacement.

More on Couric from People.
