With Katie Couric’s contract set to expire in early June, the anchor is closing in on a decision about whether to stay at CBS News at a reduced salary or try to stake a claim in daytime TV.
Couric has entered the window in which she can entertain offers. While no decision regarding her future has been made, the anchor is working on a potential syndicated show, which could involve her friend and former NBC boss Jeff Zucker, according to two sources familiar with Couric’s plans. She is believed to have already begun conversations with Time Warner, NBCUniversal and her current employer, CBS, about the potential next act.
