As Katie Couric starts her first week at ABC, several former CBS colleagues have joined her, reports TVNewser.com.
Bob Peterson, who was creative director at CBS News, is joining Couric’s syndicated show in that same role, the story notes. Matt Lombardi, a producer, is joining Buena Vista, the Disney unit producing Couric’s show. Lori Beecher, described as a friend of Couric’s as well as a colleague from NBC and CBS, is now working at ABC.
All three wrapped up their work at CBS during the last few weeks, the piece notes.
Tony Maciulis, who was a webcast producer for Couric’s CBS News shows, left CBS in June and also joins Couric at ABC.
The Couric team has reportedly taken over office space that formerly housed ABCNews.com in New York.
