PeopleSpot > Katie Couric

Katie Couric

After 15 years of co-anchoring NBC's The Today Show, Katie Couric is now an award-winning anchor and Managing Editor at CBS Evening News. She is also a 60 Minutes correspondent, and she anchors CBS News primetime specials.

Couric has covered most of the major events of the past 15 years for NBC. From the September 11 attacks to the Gulf War, the Columbine shooting to Princess Diana's funeral, the Timothy McVeigh execution and Sarah Palin's political run in the 2008 election - Couric has seen it all, and has become America's trusted sweetheart in the meantime.




Couric lost her husband, Jay Monahan, to colon cancer in 1998, inspiring her to create the National Colorectal Cancer Research Alliance. The organization funds new research in colorectal cancer and promotes the prevention and early detection of the disease, which is the second highest cancer killer. In connection with the Alliance, Couric helped establish the Jay Monahan Center for Gastrointestinal Health.

Couric was born in Arlington, Virginia. She graduated with honors from the University of Virginia in 1979 with a bachelor's degree in English and a focus on American Studies. She currently lives in New York with her two daughters.
