In an attempt to quash widespread speculation that surfaced last week that Couric wished to leave the third-place broadcast well before her five-year, $75 million contract expires, Moonves said she would be CBS' anchor well into the future, according to staffers.

CBS News president Sean McManus, Evening News executive producer Rick Kaplan and Couric also addressed the staff, with Couric thanking staffers for their patience during the media firestorm.
