The Wall Street Journal, citing unnamed CBS News executives and people close to Katie Couric, said Wednesday she could leave her job as anchor of the "CBS Evening News" well before her contract expires in 2011. CBS and Couric issued statements denying the Journal story, but stopped short of an outright denial. They both said they have no plans to alter the way they're working now.

The report comes as CBS continues to chase its two network competitors in the evening news race. Couric is the first woman to solo anchor a network evening newscast, reportedly at a salary of $15 million a year.
