Maryland Film Festival director Jed Dietz needed a smart, distinctive newsperson to host his annual fundraiser's centerpiece attraction. Who could be authoritative and engaging when asking a panel of Oscar-nominated directors, "Are documentary filmmakers the new journalists?" His top pick was always Meredith Vieira, co-host of "The Today Show" and the host of "Who Wants to Be a Millionaire. " Viera said Thursday, "I told him it's a little off-point for me because I'm doing a morning show now. I can't speak to what the landscape is like for documentaries at the networks.

The "Today" show is taking on water in the morning news ratings battle, and it is Ann Curry who's being thrown over the side. "Today" held the top spot for a remarkable 16 years before stumbling to second place behind "Good Morning America" for a week in April, and it is the woman - always the bridesmaid and never the bride on "Today" - who must take the blame. Ms. Curry's critics (always quoted anonymously) say that she is cloying and hyper-empathetic when she is interviewing the victim du jour . That she is not engaged when doing the fluffy fashion and food segments.

There were tears and champagne, but all in all, Meredith Vieira's sendoff yesterday after nine years on ABC's The View was a disappointingly cheesy telecast. Billed as "The Goodbye Roast of Meredith Vieira," a certain amount of low-rent humor was to be expected, but ABC and executive producer Barbara Walters could have aimed a little higher than a lineup of guests that featured Kelsey Grammer, Gilbert Gottfried, Joan Rivers and Mario Cantone. Grammer, who led off the roast, plugged his movie, X-Men: The Last Stand, and then quickly excused himself.

THE ASCENSION OF KATIE Couric to the anchor desk at CBS on Tuesday and of Meredith Vieira to her place on the Today show gives us a prime-time look at the status of women in the workplace. When it comes to women, it is still about looks, age and clothes. The Wall Street Journal picked over Couric's wardrobe as if it were hanging in a secondhand shop. And women's magazine writers keep making the point that Vieira looks great without makeup and doesn't care a fig about what she wears. Television reporters asked ABC's Charlie Gibson about his anchor-chair clothing choices as a joke because they had asked Couric about hers.

No single move in television news has set off as great a chain reaction as Katie Couric's decision to leave NBC's Today show to become the anchor and managing editor of the CBS Evening News. The star journalist's departure from NBC, which was widely reported early this week, was confirmed on air yesterday during NBC's morning program by the 49-year-old herself. "After listening to my heart and my gut -- two things that have served me pretty well in the past -- I've decided I'll be leaving Today at the end of May," she told her 6 million viewers shortly after 7:30 a.m. With her comments, a sweeping realignment of TV news anchors and hosts that will span shows from NBC's Today and CBS' 60 Minutes, to ABC's The View and World News Tonight began.

She details the allegations in "Once Upon a Secret: My Affair with President John F. Kennedy. " She told NBC's Meredith Vieira that after her freshman year at Wheaton College she lost her virginity to the president in the first lady's bedroom.
