NEW YORK (AP) — Katie Couric is losing sleep over some odd 911 calls.

New York City police said Thursday they had been called to Miss Couric’s Manhattan home several times recently because of 911 calls traced to a phone listed there. The 911 operator hears only static, but police are compelled to answer each call.

The calls come on Tuesdays at 2 a.m., as Miss Couric told an audience at a taping of her talk show this week.

Police say they are investigating whether something’s wrong with her phone or if Miss Couric is the victim of a high-tech prankster. Miss Couric called New York Police Commissioner Ray Kelly to ask advice on what to do and is awaiting the results of the investigation.

The calls first were reported in a New York Daily News article headlined “Katie’s 911 Hell.”
