Katie Couric Joins Yahoo as Global Anchor, Interview Host

Katie Couric‘s move to Yahoo is now official and she will be making the internet her primary platform after serving as a journalist on television for the past 34 years.

The 56-year-old talk show host will oversee video news content and host a monthly interview series for the company starting in early 2014.

“It’s very exciting to be a part of a leading company at the intersection of content and technology,” Katie said in a statement. ”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.”

Katie has negotiated an early exit from her deal as a special correspondent for ABC News, though she will continue with her daytime talk show Katie for the time being. It is not expected for the show to be renewed for a third season.
