CBS Evening News with Katie Couric E-Mail Alert


Hi everyone. I hope you had a great week.


It's certainly been a momentous past few days for our country. Today, Barack Obama held his first press conference as President-elect, and said we are facing "the greatest economic challenge of our lifetime." Chip Reid will take a close look at how Mr. Obama handled the press conference – and have the latest on his transition to power. Also, Bob Schieffer and Anthony Mason will join us from Washington to provide some analysis.


The economic news keeps getting worse. The government reported today that unemployment is at a 14-year high of 6.5 percent. Last month, another 240,000 jobs disappeared.  On top of that, both Ford and GM reported major losses. Anthony Mason also reports on the slumping economy and Cynthia Bowers explains what's going on with the imploding American auto industry.


But even as job losses soar, there are some fields of work that are virtually recession-proof. Mark Strassmann looks at where you can find a job…in some industries that are growing, not shrinking.


Finally tonight: Strike up the band! For this week's Assignment America, we'll show you a fearless marching band … that sees no obstacles.


See you tonight!


Katie Couric
