What does everyone think of Katie's move to CBS?

I rarely watch the Today Show, but I can't imagine it without her.

She's already looking more like a news anchor. Gearing up for the role I guess.

She's smart. She knows a good career move. And, the Today Show's ratings are dropping so it's probably a good choice.

We actually had dinner with her one evening. She was the speaker at a conference and sat at our table the night before. I can't tell you how nice she is. Truly a loving woman.

Well she has never proved herself as anything but a fluff reporter/interviewer to the stars and hostess, good at that I grant you but she'll have to go some to prove she has earned this new job. Actualy the woman taking her place, Meredith has more actual news reporting experience than Katie. Should prove interesting to see how and if she can handle the job.

Just curious.

I watch the Today Show every morning while getting ready for work. I have to admit, I will miss Katie. I know there are rumors that she is not so nice to her staff and that she and Matt don't really get along, but I just don't see that on the camera. She may be rich, but has had lots of heartache in her life. All that money doesn't take away the pain she and her family had to endure. I wish her happiness.

Lynn, I'm with you on the money issue. When did all of this get so out of hand? I was shocked to hear how much she made and will make.

The same goes for homes. Since when are home priced in the millions? How did that happen?

I guess it's all about demand.

Katie is tight with her money, no matter how much she makes. She shops at Target!

Hey, I say more power to her. If they can pay football and baseball players the ridiculous salaries they do, why not her? Or better yet, ME?

If we had to list the TOP 10 THINGS THAT HAVE GOTTEN OUT OF HAND over the past years, what would you list? Here's my contribution:

1. Gas Prices
2. Sports Salaries
3. New Car Prices
4. New Home Prices
5. HEALTH CARE (includes doctors, hospitals, operations, etc.)
6. Clothing
7. Lawn Mowers
8. Movie Theaters going (includes food)
9. Education (colleges)
10. Food

Did I cover it girls? What did I leave out? Please add, subtract, whatever.

Same over here jawjaw, that's a good list. I'm not too sure about the price of lawn mowers but all others you mentioned have certainly gone over the top price wise!!

What's it cost for a movie ticket where you are. Cheap night $6.50 here but $9.50 - $13.00 other times.

Well I had to purchase a new 40 gallon water heater today and it cost nearly $600. with labor. I remember when I was a kid my dad always took care of all that household repair stuff for next to nothing. I was told the water heaters are sooo expensive now because they are made in (READY FOR THIS???) made in China and our plumbers need special wrenches costing $150.00 each....Good old American know how seems to be no more....Oh and while we're at it,
NO stinkng sports figure or news anchor or movie star is worth over a million dollars let alone what they are paid now..... [Roll Eyes] [Mad] [Eek!]
