I'm sure Katie Couric was yelling out 'yahoo' when she received the call from search giant Yahoo, regarding a job offer as the role of "global news anchor" for the company.




Couric will host a high-profile interview show for the company, according to sources of All Things D. The deal has reportedly been months in the making, with Couric and Yahoo in talks since August. ABC apparently owns the rights to Couric's digital output, as per her contract. All Things D's source have said that Couric's show will include exclusive interviews with a bunch of high-profile celebrities, and business executives.


Couric was intrigued by the idea of a web-only show after she attended a Yahoo advertising event in the Caribbean last fall. The bigger bet here is from Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer, as she continues to provide reasons for people to visit Yahoo. Couric, though, is a big fish, and should bring in a slew of new viewers.
