Yahoo woos top US anchorwoman Katie Couric
TOP US anchorwoman Katie Couric, who has hosted high-profile shows on all three major American TV networks, will head a team of global correspondents and help shape news coverage at Yahoo Inc.
Ms Couric will join Yahoo as global anchor while continuing to host her talk show on the ABC network. Yahoo chief executive Marissa Mayer had been wooing Couric for its growing news programming.
Ms Couric was the popular co-anchor of NBC's 'The Today Show'. She left NBC for CBS News in 2006 to become the first female to host the nightly news on her own.
