In her part-time job working for Yahoo, Katie Couric will reportedly receive more than part-time money. The New York Daily News reports that the TV veteran will make as much as $6 million a year for the gig.
The Yahoo job will be Couric’s secondary role, while she continues to focus on the second season of “Katie,” her ABC talk show, the story says.
The role with the Internet site represents a significant pay bump for Couric from what she earned as a special correspondent with ABC News, the story notes.
"But the media maven could be looking at an overall reduction next year if ABC, as rumored, decides not to renew ‘Katie’ after the season wraps up in May,” the story reports. “Couric’s company is paid $20 million to produce the show, of which about half goes to the star herself.”
