I Love Katie Couric! When she left the Today show it was one of the saddest days of my life, seriously, I went on strike and wouldn’t watch the Today show because I couldn’t believe I wouldn’t see Katie’s smile, or listen to her contagious laugh or admire her outfits, I love her fashion!
Later on when she was on TV every night on CBS, it wasn’t the same, she was too serious, I missed my funny and charismatic Katie!
That’s why, when I heard Katie Couric was planning her own talk show, it was one of the happiest days of my life! Along with the birth of my children of course, although less painful.
So since September 10th at 4pm PT in the afternoon, (check local listings at www.katiecouric.com) my life is put on hold for 1 full hour during “Katie” on ABC and let me tell you she’s back!
One of Katie’s characteristics is that she can make you laugh and cry, she can be serious and hilarious, when she talks is like she’s talking to you and only to you and you want to be her best friend, she’s is the best interviewer! I truly love Katie!
Distributed by Disney-ABC Domestic Television to 95% of the country, “Katie” is broadcast live from New York City in front of a studio audience and it’s been executive-produced by Couric and longtime colleague Jeff Zucker, reuniting one of television’s most successful partnerships.
Timely and topical, the show will include powerful segments and thoughtful interviews with newsmakers, celebrities and everyday people who have extraordinary stories to tell.
The show, which will feature a mix of in-studio segments and field pieces, will be introduced each day by a memorable theme song entitled “This Day,” performed especially for the show by Grammy-winning artist Sheryl Crow.
“Katie” will also include recurring franchises such as;
- “Women Who Should Be Famous” which will feature headline-makers as well as everyday people who make a difference in how we live our lives. Viewers will be introduced to women whose leadership, commitment to excellence and passion for life are awe-inspiring.
“In this franchise we will be able to spotlight women doing remarkable things.” Couric commented during a gathering of television critics last week in in Los Angeles
- “You Only Live Once” (YOLO) is all about tackling one’s life-affirming bucket list.
“It will be fun to try some of these things myself, but I’m more excited to use the access we have to give other people opportunities to check off their lists” Said Couric.
What I also love about “Katie” is that it has a significant digital component that allows us viewers to engage before, during, and after each episode. The website www.katiecouric.com will combine user- generated content and exclusive content from the show with social media streams through Skype, Facebook and Twitter, to foster a community that allows for sharing, connecting, and engagement.
