Google on Thursday started offering news feeds from the CBS Evening News With Katie Couric to users of the search engine's personalized homepages.
The content, which includes headlines, top stories, a calendar of events and Couric's daily blog, is available through a module jointly developed by Google and CBS. Users have the option of adding the mini-application to their homepage.
