FILE - This Oct. 23, 2013 file photo shows TV host Katie Couric at the Somaly Mam Foundation Gala in New York. Couric is joining Yahoo to anchor a news program for the Internet company as it tries to expand its audience and sell more advertising. An announcement on Monday, Nov. 25, confirms recent published reports that Couric would diversify into online video programming after spending decades in broadcast television as a talk-show host and news anchor. The 56-year-old Couric will continue to host her daytime talk show, "Katie," on ABC even after she becomes Yahoo's "global anchor" beginning next year. (Photo by Andy Kropa/Invision/AP, File)
