Katie Couric on Morning Show Segments: “They’ve Gotten Increasingly Light Over The Years”





Does The Perky One believe the web is where it's at? In a new interview with Glamour, Katie Couric reveals why she's leaving ABC News for Yahoo. Here's an excerpt:

"Morning-show segments are often so short and they've gotten increasingly light over the years," Couric told Glamour. "The [online] real estate is so valuable. The reach is extraordinary. I learned that when I did my interview with Sarah Palin for CBS and more people saw it online than on a TV platform…I'm excited to take advantage of that in the best possible way."

The piece didn't mention Couric's self-titled daytime talk show. The future of Katie will reportedly be decided in December, with numbers from this past month's November Sweeps being taken into account. The week ending Nov. 17, the ABC-Disney produced vehicle dipped 7 percent to a 1.7.

    and who helped to make them light with infotainment??!?!? Certainly not your colorist Katie. Katie certainly contributed to dumbing down news during her tenure on TODAY, CBS EVENING NEWS and her talker, Katie.

    Dan Rather has been doing online news for years since being fired from CBS and we never hear about him.

    Katie is trying to script a happy ending for her ABC exit.
