Katie Couric will be leaving ABC News to join Yahoo. Yahoo confirmed the news on Monday morning that Couric will be heading to Silicon Valley as Yahoo global anchor.

 

Marrisa Mayer, Yahoo CEO said, “Katie’s depth of experience, her intellectual curiousity, and her charisma make her the perfect choice to anchor Yahoo News and the whole Yahoo Network. Her unmatched energy, savvy, and versatility enables her to connect with audiences across the globe. News is a definitive daily habit for our users and Katie will work with our talented editorial team to pioneer a new chapter of digital journalism.”

 

Couric was the first female anchor of the show CBS Evening News and has been a special correspondent for ABC. Couric was the co-anchor of the NBC Today show and hosted the syndicated daytime talk show Katie. Couric will continue to host the show after joining Yahoo.

 

Couric said, “it’s very exciting to be a part of a leading company at the intersection of content and technology. I have great admiration for Marissa Mayer and her team and their commitment to bringing news, entertainment and information to the Yahoo community across multiple platforms. Joining Yahoo offers a tremendous opportunity to reach people all around the world in the way that they’re using and consuming media today.”

 

Mayer has made some major moves since taking over as CEO of Yahoo upgrading the company’s stock prices shooting off the charts. On the otherhand, the core advertising business remains flat. Mayer is planning on strengthening the company’s ad performance with emphasis on video and content.

 

Couric got hired along with columnist David Pogue coming from the New York Times. Yahoo also hired former Times deputy news editor Megan Liberman as Yahoo News’ editor in chief and added former Times political writer Matt Bai.
