Katie Couric and Matt Lauer to reunite on 'Today'

Katie Couric and Matt Lauer will be together again on the "Today" show – at least for one day.

Couric's rep told the New York Post that she is scheduled to appear with her former co-host next Wednesday on "Today" to tout her new book, "The Best Advice I Ever Got: Lessons From Extraordinary Lives."

Will the appearance be a precursor of things to come?

According to a recent story in the New York Times, Couric is exploring her options once her contract ends this summer as anchor for "CBS Evening News," including a possible daytime show with a familiar face.

"Ms. Couric is pursuing the idea of her own syndicated talk show, possibly with her former 'Today' show co-host, Matt Lauer," reports the Times.

    I saw Matt Laurer at ABC Carpet in NYC- I could not believe the size of his head.
    It was so large and heavy looking that it seemed to weigh his torso down. He
    did not look like the same guy on TV.

    I fail to see why the network is considering paying Matt Lauer $25m a year Does he really think that he needs a cost of living from $17m per year when so many people are out of work.I can see paying Brian Williams for being a top rated newsman and Al Roker for being a top rated weatherman but sorry Matt you are really just an announcer on a variety show. Both Ann and Meredith have other shows as well as the Today show. At least when Katie left she went on to real newscasting and doing field work. Get your ego in check and be grateful for what you have.

    What most people forget is that these people aren't journalists – they are news readers – that's all. News is rarely real information, it's soundbites and gossip. Katie Couric landed on the number 3 news because they were desperate to find someone with celebrity appeal and exposure – like the wildly popular 'Today' show. Their morning show just fired everyone and it still is at the bottom, just like the nightly news. Matt Lauer has been lost since Katie split, so now they can resume their careers together.

      You're right about the "news reader" part, and that's the problem. Anchors now no longer have credibility.. the trust of the viewing public because the idiot suits that run networks now have convinced themselves that all it takes to be an anchor is popularity. There was a time the anchor was a journalist, the best and most seasoned reporter on the staff. They not only reported the facts, but would put them in context for their viewers. Teach and lead them if you will.

      Lightweights like Couric are completely out of their element whe it comes to real news. The public knew it from day one, the suits and Couric were deluding themselves.

    Im an ABC/Good Morning America fan. Dont like CBS news at all. NBC is tolerable, on a good day. Katie Couric just doesnt fit the morning news show circut anymore. Maybe if she was 25 yrs younger. But then, I never liked her when she was young either. Dont really have anything bad to say about her. She has no intentions of coming back. Shes just using the show as a publicity stunt for her book.

    KATIE (for the morons who can't spell) Couric is way too pleased with herself and thinks she's so cute. Barf. Ann Curry is always oh-so-earnest on "important" or "sad" issues. She totally plays little-miss-goody-two-shoes. Barf. Matt Lauer thinks he's so sauve, so good-looking, so above-it-all. Barf. Natalie Morales wears Madonna's cone-boobs for Halloween. Classy.

Blinded by the lights a marine colonel was asked by curic, the deepest question she could muster. " did you bring a lot of MREs" Gees, she was never a news person. Good riddance.

    Wrong direction. The Today show should be looking forward with some fresh faces instead of trying to recapture the past. Katie is far from the cute bubbly girl she was in her twenties and thirties, and that's what you want for the light heated entertainment show today is. Not some aging sourpuss failed news anchor. Eventually you got to move on.

    My disdain for Ms. Couric is that she is not good at interviewing people. Go back to journalism class and remember, ask the straight forward question then be quiet & let the subject respond. She and most of the "reporters" today will ask, "What is your thought on som e subject OR do you think such and such?" Or they ask several questions in one question. I think Ms. Couric and most of the others calling themselves journalists ought to retake a few courses. Don't get me started on ambush journalism. BTW, I tend to be a Democrat.

    The Today Show is not know for its news anymore – especially with its obvious slant to the left. Al Roker sucks now.

    Wow! I would love to see Katie return to the Today Show, but I don't believe that will happen. I've actually been watching her on the weeknight newscast for the past year or so and I think she does a great job. I will miss her. The tension on the Today Show jumps out of the screen at you. Has anyone else noticed that much of the time when Ann is there, Meredith is not, and vice-versa? I enjoy Ann; she can be a serious journalist, not just a news reader. Meredith is so often over the top with her touchy-feely ways and man-crazy comments. If one of them had to go I would send Meredith packing.

    Reporting news has become more like a celebrity business, everybody biting and clawing to get on top. Some of the local news stations need to get rid of 3 to 4 people reporting during one news hour, it's ridiculous.

    This is a big sign that Katie will be leaving CBS. They would NEVER let one of their big names appear on a news program for a competing network. Clearly CBS doesn't care because they either know Katie isn't staying or they they don't want her to stay.

    It's about time CBS finally realized Katie is no true news journalist. She's better off covering a Lindsay Lohan story or Charlie Sheen tirade than talking global climate changes with World Leaders if she even knows who the world leaders are. Oh and by the way, when she tells NBC news during an interview that she cannot go to Afghanistan to cover news because her babysitting and baking cookies are more important,, .. I think that pretty much sums up her character !!

      AND I'm sure you would be the first to criticize her if she did decide to go to a war zone area to cover the news..."What is that woman doing putting herself in danger when she has 2 kids and there isn't a dad to watch them when she is gone".

      I really do not think you watch her news stories, if you did you would have never made such a comment. Please in the future, research what you say before you say it. Everyone has a contract, no anchor is open ended. Her contact will be up and it is her choice what she does, I am sure money is not a problem to her, so if she wants a new show, why not. Matt would be a great addition, they were great together before.

      You are so right Jack. What has happened to civility? Our politicians, teachers, students, the lady at the checkout. We've become a society of extreme views and even more extreme hate. I doubt this will make anyone stop themselves from posting a hateful comment but I sure hope they really think about what they post.

      It's the anonimity of the internet that makes it so. While there are very rude and extreme people out there, the anonimity of posting things online allows for extreme rudeness. These cowards wouldn't be able to say half the stuff they do if they had to do it person.

      You liberals are so amusing and hypocritical when it comes to civility. It is perfectly ok for liberals/democrats to be uncivil to Conservatives/Republicans 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, but it's a different story when liberals/democrats are criticized by Conservatves/Republicans. Couric failed to elevate the CBS Evening News because she had no audience with Republicans who remembered how partisan she was on "Today". For those of you who don't like it when she is criticized, too bad. Go pound some sand.

      Agreed. Look at how many people responded and turned this into some sort of political debate...this article is about a reporter and the post you are responding to is about civility. Nothing to do with politics at all. I am usually all for civility but in this case I must say that anyone that concerned with creating a political debate out of nowhere needs to get a life.
