Couric to Attend Correspondents’ Dinner

An exclusive to W&W: A well-placed source says that embattled CBS anchor Katie Couric will be attending the White House Correspondents dinner on Saturday.

A "CBS Evening News" spokeswoman says she hasn’t been able to confirm or deny it.

Couric, who’s been the subject of news reports saying she is likely to relinquish her chair due to poor ratings, has not yet appeared on anyone’s list of Hollywood or media celebs planning to attend the annual bash, one of D.C.’s biggest.

Just about every dinner comes with a B-story — drama beyond the dais. Could this be it? Last year, you may remember, it was Laurie David’s run-in with Karl Rove.
