Bob Schieffer Gone But His Ratings Not ForgottenS

Katie Couric has "rarely" drawn an audience as large as the man she replaced atop the CBS Evening News, Bob Schieffer, the Times notes. Schieffer added 300,000 viewers during his 18 month tenure; Couric trails her rivals by two million after 17 months on the job. Yet Schieffer just announced he will retire and Couric remains in the anchor chair. [Times]
