Update: Connie Chung and Maury Povich are staying in New York, for now

You can take down the "Welcome Home" banner: Maury Povich and Connie Chung aren't moving back to D.C. after all.

The veteran broadcasters -- who were born here, raised here and launched their careers here -- decided last fall that they were ready to return after two decades in New York and signed a contract on a spectacular $9.million Tudor in Kalorama.
But now the For Sale signs are back up at the seven-bedroom mansion. What's up? "We decided not to move," Chung said.

Chung, 63, told us that the decision to head south was "quite precipitous." But then their son Matthew, about to enter his freshman year in high school, got into his top-pick N.Y.C. private school. And Povich, 71, the main advocate for a Washington move, determined "it would have been too much of a schlepp" to commute from D.C. to the Stamford, Conn., studios where he tapes his talk show. They never settled on the Kalorama place.
