On the air, Katie Couric is all smiles. And don't get her wrong - as she tells Parade magazine - the soon-to-be CBS news anchor is "doing great."

Hey, did you hear that Katie Couric will start anchoring the CBS Evening News on September 5? If not, you'll be bludgeoned over the head with that message beginning soon.

The network has rolled out its first promotional campaign on behalf of the former Today host. It ends with Bob Schieffer simply stating: "Just watch." Such a spot has already begun airing on CBS news programs around the country.

What's an incredibly rich, soon-to-be historic CBS Evening News anchor to do before beginning her new gig? Tour the country, of course!
