Katie Couric Today Anchor NBC January

Katie Couric to Return to NBC's Today as Guest Co-Anchor in January

Good morning, Katie Couric! And welcome back.

Couric will return to her old stomping grounds at NBC’s Today show next month to serve as guest co-anchor of the long-running morning show. She’ll be back the week of Jan. 2, according to the Los Angeles Times, to help fill in for Today co-host Savannah Guthrie, who’s been on maternity leave since Dec. 2. (Guthrie just signed an extension to remain at Today.)

Couric, of course, co-hosted Today from 1991 to 2006, pairing with Matt Lauer to lead the top-rated morning show on TV. This guest stint will pair her once again with Lauer — who also just signed a lucrative deal to remain with the show — just as Today is locked in a fierce ratings battle with ABC’s Good Morning America.

After leaving NBC in 2006, Couric went to CBS to anchor the CBS Evening News, then hopped to ABC and hosted a short-lived daytime talk show, Katie. She’s currently the global anchor of Yahoo News.

Will you tune in to see Katie and Matt together again on the Today show? Let us know how ’90s nostalgic you are in the comments.

Comments are monitored, so don’t go off topic, don’t frakkin’ curse and don’t bore us with how much your coworker’s sister-in-law makes per hour. Talk smart about TV!

    Wow! Talk about ‘fake’ news. Katie did some funny editing on a gun control documentery. She’s being sued. Did NBC know that or do they care?

  8. Rhonda says:

    Loved Katie and Lauer until Katie got pushed out to let Matt have his way. All the great females on the show are gone. Lauer is washed up. Katie Couric is above slinking down to this level.

  9. Katherine says:

    Bring Ann Curry in for a week!

  10. Mary says:

  14. Cheryl Grant says:

    Glad to see Katie back..She adds a lot to the NBC show with Matt and the others.

  15. It’s no surprise that NBC would put Couric back on the air. NBC is known for putting misleading/lying reporters on air such as Couric and Williams. It’s no wonder NBC is slowly going down the toilet. I have almost entirely quit watching NBC and surely would not watch anything with lying Couric on the air
