Sully Breaks Up With Matt Lauer For Katie Couric

Godlike Hudson Hero pilot Chesley Sullenberger canceled a Today show interview Monday, but promised to come back and give Matt Lauer the exclusive when he could talk. But he lied!

NEW YORK (AP) — Katie Couric has landed the first interview with hero pilot Chesley Sullenberger, who brought his distressed plane down in the Hudson River with all his passengers surviving.

The interview with Sullenberger and his crew will be shown on CBS' "60 Minutes" on Feb. 8.

Burn, Matt Lauer! Total Couric burn, on you! Old Sully apparently couldn't resist Katie Couric's charms. Would it be irresponsible of us to encourage wild speculation about just what exactly convinced this man to change his mind? Probably, yes. But you could speculate anyhow.
