NEW YORK (AP) - Katie Couric will soon get some practice at hosting her own daytime talk show, thanks to “The View.”

Executive producer Bill Geddie said Wednesday that Couric will be a guest co-host on the ABC talk show airing live on Aug. 3.

Last month, it was announced that ABC and Disney had signed Couric as host and producer of a one-hour nationally syndicated talk show premiering in September 2012. She also is joining the ABC News team.

Couric was a longtime co-anchor of NBC’s “Today” show and, until May, anchored the “CBS Evening News.”

“The View” airs weekdays at 11 a.m. Eastern time. Its regular panel of co-hosts includes Barbara Walters, Whoopi Goldberg, Joy Behar (BAY’-har), Elisabeth Hasselbeck and Sherri Shepherd.
