Katie Couric Leaving Yahoo News Site

The former Today show host and CBS Evening News anchor will be concentrating on production work for the time being. A representative for Couric said Friday she turned down an opportunity for a short-term contract extension at Oath, formerly Yahoo.

NEW YORK (AP) — Katie Couric is leaving the online company Oath, formerly Yahoo, where she has been conducting interviews and reporting news since 2014.

The former “Today” show host and “CBS Evening News” anchor will be concentrating on production work for the time being. A representative for Couric said Friday she turned down an opportunity for a short-term contract extension at Oath.

Couric is working with National Geographic on a documentary to follow up her project on gender revolution with the network. She’s producing a scripted series for Netflix, hosts a podcast where she interviews figures in news and pop culture, and produces “Scraps,” a cooking and travel series for the FYI network.

The 60-year-old Couric also hosts an online cooking series with her husband John Molner.

If you search hard enough on Yahoo – you can find Katie Couric in under 10 Minutes. Biggest Flop in News history, Yahoo could have had the world by a string had they had Live 24/7 News from the get-go rather than aggregating News on the Cheap.

The only constant is change and some people continue to hold on trying to find relevancy. Hope Katie finds something to make her happy.
