(Newser) – It looks like Katie Couric is just about done with network television. The Hollywood Reporter says she's in talks to leave ABC and join Yahoo, after being personally wooed by Marissa Mayer. The report says her daytime talk show, Katie, will likely be done after this season, its second. Couric is expected to run what the Washington Post describes as a "streaming video show" for Yahoo. No word yet on exact dates or the money involved, though Couric's three-year deal with ABC was reportedly worth $40 million.
