Pressure on Katie Couric to Deliver for Yahoo as Company Makes Cutbacks

Feb 19, 2016  •  Post A Comment

As the high-profile — and high-priced — face of Yahoo! News, Katie Couric is under renewed pressure to deliver for the company as it streamlines its offerings and reduces its staff, the New York Post reports, noting that Couric is pulling down a paycheck of $10 million a year.

“There was grumbling in the ranks recently, several sources said, as Yahoo axed popular magazine verticals and laid off workers while retaining the high-priced anchor,” the Post reports. “For many observers, it was a case of deja vu. Couric, these people noted, pulled in $15 million a year as the anchor of the ‘CBS Evening News’ — while the Tiffany Network was slashing jobs on its news desk.”

The report adds: “Some said that while Couric is good at carrying the flag, she has failed to pull in the big celebrity ‘gets’ that she was hired to do when in 2013 she was hired as Yahoo’s first-ever global news anchor.”

  1. Katie 2nd appearance on The Late, Late Show was this past week. Like the first time she was on Katie tried to highjack the show. Must be she knows her days at Yahoo are numbered and she is trying to get on her old network.

  2. I guess the handwriting is on her hand…
