Couric ranks 62nd on 'Most Poweful Women' list

In its annual ranking of the "Top 100 Most Powerful Women," Forbes ranked CBS Evening News anchor and UVA alumna Katie Couric 62nd among all women worldwide. That's one better than Couric's previous year standing of 63rd, but still not high enough to top Meredith Vieira (#61), the woman who replaced Couric as co-host of NBC's Today when Couric quit the morning show to become network TV's first solo nightly news anchor in 2006. Coming in at #1 for a third year in a row was German chancellor Angela Merkel.
