The Biz: Meredith Vieira Returns to Daytime

It's hard to say no to Meredith Vieira. While putting together her new daytime show, NBCUniversal executives let the host pick her executive producer, sidekick, band — even the furniture on her set (a tatty, pet-ravaged couch from her Westchester, New York, home). Perhaps the "suits" — as Vieira calls them — are aware that she is one of the rare TV talents who is not afraid to walk away from it all.

After becoming, at age 35 in 1989, the youngest correspondent ever hired by 60 Minutes, she left the prestigious CBS newsmagazine two years later to have her second child when then-executive producer Don Hewitt refused her request to work part-time. Her very public decision sparked a national conversation on the challenges for women who balance motherhood and career. After an Emmy award-winning stint on the ABC newsmagazine Turning Point, she changed course, becoming a founding panelist on the daytime coffee klatch The View in 1997.

Is Katie Couric Returning to Today?

Katie Couric is in talks to return to Today temporarily to replace co-hostSavanah Guthrie when she goes on maternity leave, according to The New York Post

NBC News is said to also be in talks with others, including Meredith Vieira, the Post reports.

"With the Today show in a good place, we are blessed with great talent and many options to temporarily fill Savannah's chair while she's on leave, but there's no plan yet," an NBC spokeswoman said in a statement. "Stay tuned."

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.
