NBC TODAY SHOW WOULD BE SMART TO SIGN KATIE COURIC
NBC made a ridiculous decision years ago by replacing Jane Pauley with the younger Deborah Norville. Poor Deborah paid the price and endured such fan backlash...Then they added Katie and she was great...then she was forced out..Now after Katie's many attempts at other positions have failed, she is considering being the co host on the Today show again... I think it would be a good move for her and the show rating will improve. I just hope they fired those men who monkeyed with the format in the first place...Here is the news from the NY POST
Katie Couric is in preliminary talks to head back to NBC’s “Today” — at least on a temporary basis, The Post has learned.
Couric is a contender to sit in and co-host the No. 2 morning show while Savannah Guthrie is on maternity leave, sources told The Post.
Guthrie, 42, is five months pregnant and expected to be away from the show for a few months beginning in late summer.
While the preliminary talks between Couric, 57, and NBC concern a temporary position, it could, sources added, turn into something longer-term if she sparks an uptick in ratings.
