Couric first joined Today in 1991, when she ironically was called on to fill Deborah Norville's spot when she left on maternity leave. Couric secured the gig permanently and remained as co-anchor until she exited in 2006 for CBS Evening News. Couric currently hosts her own talk show, Katie, which ends in June. Couric also has a deal with Yahoo! as its global anchor. While Yahoo! has a partnership with ABC News, Couric's interviews aren't covered by that deal.
