Has Katie Couric Had Enough of Yahoo?

May 5, 2016  •  Post A Comment

Katie Couric, who has been global news anchor for Yahoo since 2014, appears to be ready to make a move. According to inside sources quoted by The New York Post’s Page Six, the TV news veteran is weighing her options.

The news comes as Yahoo is looking for a buyer. The report cites sources close to Couric saying she will wait to find out who buys the tech firm before deciding her next move.

“Multiple insiders tell Page Six that Couric — along with other talent including Yahoo Style’s Editor-in-Chief Joe Zee and tech writer David Pogue — have had long-standing frustrations because they believe the site makes it difficult for users to find their content,” the story reports. “They also suspect the Silicon Valley firm has skimped on spending on ads that could drive traffic to their content.”

The report notes that Kouric has been missing recently from some high-profile events. “While she sat at Yahoo’s table at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner in 2015, Couric skipped the event this year to attend a conference in Rome,” the story reports. “A source said she taped segments for her day job while there.”

  1. Katie who??

  2. Has Katie Couric Had Enough of Yahoo?

    The question no one is asking. And no one cares about.

  3. Has Yahoo and America had enough of Katie Couric? Sorry, former prom Queens lose their appeal after a while. She became too big for “Today” and could never fill Dan Rather’s very worn shoes in the “CBS Evening News.”

    What used to make me laugh was when she played her husband’s illness and “sole bread winner” angles when she was then earning over five million dollars per year

    Thank-you Katie and good-bye…

  4. Let’s see. Katie went from Today to CBS Evening News. Crickets. Then to her own daytime yakker. More crickets. Then to GMA as a reporter? LOUD crickets. Then to interactive anchor of Yahoo? Virtual invisibility. Sorry Katie, but your last several career moves have followed a trajectory similar to the Titanic. Better luck!
