KATIE COURIC is quitting her CBS Evening News anchor job for the sake of her children – and to kick-start her love life!

The former Today show star is ready to sign off in June when her $15 million-a-year contract expires, sources say.

"Katie feels she has nothing else to prove in the job," divulged a close friend.

More importantly, she wants to be a more hands-on mother.

Katie traveled at great personal risk to Egypt during the country's recent revolution, and the dangerous trip made her realize that she needs to stay out of harm's way for the sake of her two daughters whom she is raising as a single mom.

Katie, 54, also wants time to heat up her romance with her longtime boyfriend Brooks Perlin, who is 17 years younger.
