4. Different Divisions...
Kroft has replaced Mike Wallace as the lead interviewer/personality on the show. While it's part of CBS News, it's operated independently. For years Wallace conducted the "carrot" interviews. Walter Cronkite never appeared on the show (IRC) and Rather didn't become involved with the show until the 90's (remember 60 Minutes II???).

Kouric will get her chance. She's been at several White House meetings with leading anchors already. While she's included on the show, this really isn't her turf.`
