Katie Couric 'intrigued' to watch Piers Morgan

She reportedly turned down opportunity to replace Larry King

Katie Couric will be watching Piers Morgan when he steps into Larry King's shoes this fall.

"I've never seen him do an interview but it will be interesting to watch how it unfolds," Couric -- who reportedly turned down the opportunity to replace King last spring -- told The Hollywood Reporter at Friday night's celeb-studded Stand Up to the Cancer benefit in L.A.

"I'm a real student of interviewing, so I will be intrigued to see how he peels the layers off the onion," added Couric of the "America's Got Talent" judge's self-professed "slightly cheeky" Q&A style.
 
Couric tells THR she "has no plans" to step down as anchor of the CBS "Evening News" despite the constant speculation.

"I love my job," she said. "I feel my interests are more than satisfied at the moment. It's a very demanding job to do every night, but I love it."

But that doesn't mean she'd turn down an opportunity for her own one-on-one talk show in the future.
 
"Maybe someday," she said. "But with my interviews for '60 Minutes' and other items for the Web, I think I have enough responsibilities for now."
