Katie Couric signs deal with ABC: Syndicated talk show to launch in September
In a press release, ABC announced that Couric had signed a "multi-year, multi-platform" agreement with the network. While Couric's talk show won't debut until September, she'll begin contributing to ABC News programming over the summer.
"[Couric] will anchor specials, contribute interviews, participate in special events coverage and bring her many talents to bear on some of the most important and interesting stories of the day," read the release.
She'll also be reunited with Jeff Zucker, her one-time "Today" show producer who is credited with helping her career take-off. He'll be a co-executive producer of her as-yet-unnamed talk show.
"It was a blast working with Katie at 'Today' and I'm excited to do it again," said Zucker. "And besides, it should be more fun spending time with Katie at 3 or 4 in the afternoon than at 3 or 4 in the morning."
