The surprising NEW way people are making SIX FIGURES on YouTube. . . That story and much more TONIGHT on the CBS EVENING NEWS with Katie Couric


Quote Of The Day

- Igor Stravinsky

Did You Know

Americans consumed 76 billion pounds of red meat and poultry in the year 2000, up 21% from a decade earlier.

Tonight On The CBS Evening News


Here is an early preview of what we are planning for tonight’s CBS EVENING NEWS from Anchor and Managing Editor, Katie Couric…

Hi everyone,

President-elect Barack Obama pressed Congress to act quickly on his ambitious economic stimulus plan, warning that the consequence of not doing so could be years of wrenching economic decline. Mr. Obama said, "for every day we wait or point fingers or drag our feet, more Americans will lose their jobs." Chip Reid reports from Capitol Hill.

Turning abroad, international pressure on Israel intensified today to halt its attack on Gaza, now in its 13th day. United Nations Relief halted deliveries of food and medicine - humanitarian aid was allowed to be delivered to Gaza yesterday during a momentary Israeli cease-fire - after accusing Israeli forces of killing one of their drivers. Mark Phillips has the very latest on the Mideast violence.

Think YouTube is just an online pastime? Think again. For some video creators, it's a way to make a six-figure income - right out of their own homes. Michelle Miller met one Web entrepreneur who turned a camera and a computer into a full-time job.

Finally, there's no business like show business … but with business slowing on Broadway, shows are finding it's best not to go on. A dozen shows are doing their final curtain calls this month. Richard Schlesinger reports that the lights on the Great White Way aren’t looking so bright these days.

See you tonight,

Saturday On 48 Hours Mystery

Here’s a look at what’s coming up on Saturday’s broadcast of 48 Hours VANISHED, Stolen Beauty:

In Ocilla, Georgia, thirty-year-old Tara Grinstead was a beloved teacher, a mentor and friend to many of her students, especially when it came to her passion. . . beauty pageants. The students sought her advice, as Tara had been a fixture on the local pageant circuit ever since she was a teenager. But as she matured, Tara refocused her energies on a career in education. Everything was going well. . . until October 22, 2005 when Tara went to a cookout a few blocks from her home. . . and hasn’t been seen since. On our 48 Hours broadcast, the Georgia Bureau of Investigations (GBI) reveals evidence once kept secret -- that could solve this case.

As astonishing as it seems that someone could disappear without a trace, exactly three months after Tara disappeared, another young woman, Jennifer Kesse, vanished from her home in Orlando, Florida. By January 2006, Jennifer was just beginning her career as a financial analyst, and seemed to have everything going for her. . . until she vanished without a trace. Over two years later, her family, friends and police are still looking for her.

Are the cases related? Could there be a common thread in the investigations? And how did two smart, successful women simply disappear off the face of the earth? Peter Van Sant investigates in this special 48 Hours VANISHED, Stolen Beauty.

(48 HOURS MYSTERY airs Saturday at 10pmET/9CT)
