According to a news report from the Associated Press, Katie Couric will be leaving her anchor post at the CBS Evening News after joining the program five years ago.

So what is her next move? A syndicated talk show featuring Couric is expected to launch in 2012.  Many wonder if she has her eye on replacing Oprah on major network TV.

Couric’s contract with CBS ends on June 4th, though no word on when her official last broadcast will be.

In the meantime, representatives for CBS and Couric have not confirmed or denied the report. “We’re having ongoing discussions with Katie Couric,” said CBS News spokeswoman Sonya McNair yesterday. “We have no announcements to make at this time. Until we do, we will continue to decline comment on rumor or speculation.”

“Ditto, said Matthew Hiltzik, Couric’s spokesman.

In 2006, Katie Couric became the first woman to anchor a network TV evening newscast.  She’s often struggled in the ratings. The CBS Evening News regularly finishes in third place behind the NBC Nightly News with Brian Williams and ABC’s World News Tonight with Diane Sawyer.

So the big question we all have now is… who will replace Couric?
