Tuning in to TV: Philanthropist gives $1M to PBS’ ‘Masterpiece’
Katie Couric greeted early-morning network viewers for 15 years, and she’ll soon be adding one more week to that resume.
The former “Today” co-host will substitute on ABC’s “Good Morning America” next week for the vacationing Robin Roberts, according to the Hollywood Reporter. The move, which will place her alongside George Stephanopoulos, was announced on the show’s Thursday morning broadcast.
Ms. Couric, who left NBC’s “Today” in 2006 to anchor “CBS Evening News,” signed a record $40 million deal with ABC in June. She has acted as a special correspondent for the network’s news programs, including “GMA” and “Nightline,” and will host her own syndicated daytime talk show, “Katie,” starting in September.
