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!

No, Katie Couric, won’t have an opening act or play “All Along the Watchtower” as an encore, but the former Today mainstay will hold town hall-style forums with viewers to learn more about what they want from their national news. The only confirmed date, so far, is July 13 in Denver.

Unlike the town meetings held by a certain, current President of the United States, these forums won’t be televised. In other words, they can – gasp! – actually be real conversations with real people.

Could a presidential campaign be far behind for America’s first female anchor? Probably.
