Norville News: Ready for more upheaval on the “Today” show? The talk around NBC News these days is that “Today’s” national correspondent, Katie Couric, will take over as the show’s co-host when Deborah Norville goes on maternity leave next spring. “She’s no substitute--she’s the successor,” one NBC News source told TV Guide. “Deborah’s a bright woman but she doesn’t come across that way on camera. She comes across as plastic. Katie’s real.” For the record, Don Browne, executive vice president of NBC News, denied that Norville is on the outs.
