After almost five years of anchoring the CBS Evening News, Katie Couric said goodbye for the last time Thursday night, E!Online.com reports.

Following a montage featuring some of her most memorable moments, including interviews with President Barack Obama, Valerie Plume, Alex Rodriquez and Clint Eastwood and trips to the Middle East and Africa and coverage of the royal wedding and the death of Osama Bid Laden, Couric bid farewell.

"To all of you watching, thank you so much for coming along with me on this incredible journey," Couric said. "That's the CBS Evening News for tonight. I'm Katie Couric. Good night."

The 54-year-old reporter, who joined CBS in 2006, says of her next move, "I am looking at a format that will allow me to engage in more multi-dimensional storytelling... I have a lot of areas of interest and I want to be able to fulfill all of that."
