Katie Couric Moving On After Talk Show Cancellation
Fans of Katie Couric's daytime talk show better watch all of the episodes between now and next June because there won't be a third season produced.
Couric and officials at Disney-ABC confirmed that her weekday talk show had been cancelled, already expected after the news personality announced she had struck a deal with Yahoo to serve as their global news anchor.
Couric's show was ranked first among new talk shows launched in 2012. Although the show premiered to very high ratings, it hasn't managed to maintain that level of interest throughout its second season.
2014 seems to be a time of new beginnings for Couric, once a popular part of NBC's "Today Show" team, as she announced earlier this year that she is planning to marry for the second time. Her first husband, Jay Monahan, succumbed to cancer 15 years ago. Her fiancé, John Molner, is a financier based in New York City.
Officials at Yahoo News praised Couric's charisma, experience and curiosity as being the perfect blend for the candidate they want sitting in their news anchor chair. Couric has said that after feeling so powerless after the death of her spouse, she decided she had to soldier on.
