On whether Katie Couric deserved her $15 million/year salary
dppress said: That is an amazing salary…I’m a bit ill-informed though, did she deserve it for her work?
» SFB says: From a name-recognition level, yes. She’s one of the most well-known news personalities out there. However, her problem was that she didn’t bring in the ratings at night that she could as a soft morning anchor. Her newscast lagged far behind those by Brian Williams and Diane Sawyer. While she had one story that she built her bread and butter on — the interview she did with an uninformed Sarah Palin after she became John McCain’s running mate — it wasn’t enough to turn ratings the other way. — Ernie @ SFB
