Katie Couric is certainly not hurting for experience. She has worked on-air for NBC, CBS and ABC while becoming the first female solo anchor of a news program during her time at CBS.  The post stated that Katie would continue to host her daytime talk show Katie on ABC daytime TV.

The hiring is the latest in a series of acquisitions of journalism stars, including New York Times tech columnist David Pogue, former New York Times editor Megan Liberman and New York Times Magazine political correspondent Matt Bai.
