Couric to host online series

Weekly original digital video series comes from ABC News, Yahoo

Katie Couric will host a weekly original digital video series from ABC News and Yahoo starting next week.

Yahoo made the announcement Wednesday ahead of its digital upfront presentation to advertisers in Gotham later in the day. Couric is now special correspondent for ABC News and host of the upcoming syndicated daytime talkshow “Katie.”

Her digital show, which will be featured on a dedicated page on Yahoo, covers topics including health, nutrition and parenting.

“Today there is so much information available to us that it can be overwhelming to sift through it all,” Couric said. “I want to introduce people to serious experts who can hopefully help provide real solutions.”

Poland Spring Natural Spring Water is the exclusive launch sponsor of the series, which extends a pact between Yahoo and ABC News.
