No, Katie Couric didn’t discover a miracle diet. But over a four-month period in 2006, as the anchor prepared to take over the CBS Evening News, it suddenly appeared as if the 53-year-old had shrunk to a third of her body weight. The photo at left, snapped in May, was widely circulated to the media as an official CBS publicity shot. Then, in September, a slimmed-down Couric, her face and waistline radically trimmed, appeared in CBS’s in-house magazine, Watch! When the media picked up on the alteration, the network said the retouching job had been the work of an “overzealous” employee. Couric, meanwhile, said she liked the original better. “There’s more of me to love,” she joked.
