As her ratings decline, and in the face of competition by charismatic news anchors like ABC News’ Charles Gibson, CBS Evening News anchor Katie Couric will be broadcasting topless through most of the November “sweeps period,” it was learned Friday, and may chair a segment called “America’s Strangest Home Videos used as possible news footage,” as a late fix for the problem of attracting disinterested news viewers. 

Producers of the news program gambled that Ms. Couric’s unique reporting style and disarming manner would be an attraction for news viewers, and though there has been little success so far, CBS executives are still convinced that their experiment can be salvaged “if we can just get the public’s attention for a little while.”
