Veteran journalist Katie Couric is coming to daytime television. Before “Katie,” premieres, Channel 2’s Jovita Moore gets rare access behind the scenes at Katie’s New York studios.
In an hour-long primetime special, Moore takes a look at what it takes to launch a talk show that will highlight important topics and newsmakers of the day.
In a one-on-one interview with Moore, Katie says the show promises to bring a fresh approach to daytime talk that will keep viewers informed on important topics that impact their everyday lives.
The veteran team behind Katie reveals what viewers can expect from the award-winning journalist in her return to daily television. Channel 2’s special will feature secrets from Katie’s innovative set, the story and superstar behind the catchy new theme song and Katie’s unique ties to Atlanta and WSB-TV.
Katie Couric returns to daily television with the premiere of her new, nationally syndicated talk show, “Katie,” on Monday, September 10th. The new one-hour program uses a live studio audience in New York.
“We’re proud to welcome the Katie to the WSB-TV and ABC family,” said Tim McVay, vice president and general manager of Channel 2 WSB-TV.
