(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.

Says a lot about Mellisa Meyers ability to recognize a killer combination of brains, voice, beauty Catie has- Killer almond eyes, brains to cut thru to basics like when she caught Sarah Palin in the headlights w/a cut thru the fluff question of "What newspapers do u read?" Everyone knew Sarah's answer of "All of them" was NOT at all possible. Catie is a mullti-talented person who could probably do well in any field of endeavor she choses

She's cute and everything but that doesn't necessarily make for good tv. She lost me when she canonized Lil Wayne. She found a fondness for him and I think it was an order from her producers to get someone on who would driver viewership based on his controversy and not necessarily any talent. And so I wouldn't be hypocritical I sat through the entire show so wanting to change the channel but not doing so. Maybe it was the stark contrast between herself and Wayne. It got the idea she had some kind of infatuation with him. Maybe life with Wayne would mean life on the edge instead of the chosen frozen rube she's engaged. Oh well, she goes and something else takes that strip on the schedule.
