We reported that Katie Couric is likely not renewing her contract with the CBS Evening News when it expires in June, as well as what appears to be Couric’s former co-host on the ‘Today Show,’ Matt Lauer’s potential exit from that program as well.
However, before all that goes down, Couric and Lauer will reunite on the ‘Today Show’ when Matt interviews Couric as she promotes her new book, The Best Advice I Ever Got: Lessons From Extraordinary Lives.
The book, a collection of interviews Couric has done over her years as a journalist will be released this Tuesday. Her appearance on the ‘Today Show’ is scheduled for Wednesday morning.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Couric is in talks with former ‘Today Show’ producer Jeff Zucker, to star in a sydicated daytime talk show.
And Lauer may be joining her.
“According to the WSJ [Wall Street Journal], Zucker — who also worked with Lauer on Today –has been discussing the idea of reuniting the two, who hosted Today together from 1997, when Lauer joined the program, until Couric left in 2006.
However, it’s far from being a done deal. For starters, it’s not likely that NBC parent Comcast Corp. will let Lauer go so easily once his contract expires. In addition, the WSJ’s sources said they weren’t sure whether Couric’s discussions with Lauer will progress beyond just talk.”
