New Deep-Voiced Human To Introduce Katie Couric
When Katie Couric "scored a victory for women" by taking over the CBS Evening News in 2006, no one trusted her ability to deliver the news without going on long asides about shopping or breast-feeding or whatever else it is that women talk exclusively about. So Walter Cronkite recorded a voiceover to introduce her broadcast every night, just so people knew she had Man's Permission to hold such a job. But then he died last year and this recording became very awkward and Too Soon.
The CBS has solved this problem by paying famous deep-voice person Morgan Freeman to record a new intro for Katie Couric, so people will know they are still allowed to trust this woman with the Evening News and her ability to read off a teleprompter.
