Larry King has suggested that no amount of tinkering with the format of the CBS Evening News is likely to overcome an inherent problem the news program faces -- the gender of its anchor, Katie Couric. "It might still be hard for a woman to anchor the evening news," King told Broadcasting & Cable magazine. "And that's sad." On the other hand, he indicated that a major news event that would show off Couric's strengths could change the public's perception of her. "Hurricane Katrina made Anderson Cooper," he remarked. "It could happen to Katie that way."
