Katie


Katie Information

Katie is a syndicated talk show co-owned and hosted by ABC News correspondent and former CBS Evening News anchor Katie Couric, co-produced by CZ Productions and Times Square Studios, in association with and distributed by Disney-ABC Domestic Television. The show premiered on September 10, 2012.

On January 30, 2013, Disney-ABC Domestic Television renewed Katie for a second season in Fall 2013.

Development & Distribution

On June 6, 2011, it was announced that Katie Couric had signed up a deal with Disney"ABC Television Group for a new syndicated talk show that would premiere in September 2012 and be distributed by Disney-ABC Domestic Television. In the process, ABC announced intentions to relinquish to its affiliates the final hour of its daytime programming lineup (3-4 p.m. Eastern time), occupied at the time by the soap opera General Hospital, to make room for the new program. The decision was made due to resistance from ABC affiliates to air Katie at 4:00 p.m. (ET) because many of them expanded their local newscasts during the timeslot after The Oprah Winfrey Show went off the air in 2011.

In March 2012, Couric and Zucker reportedly expressed concern to ABC executives about having the ABC Daytime talk show The Revolution as a possible lead-in to Katie due to the program's stagnant ratings and concerns of potential fan outcry should the launch of Katie result in the cancellation of General Hospital. On April 11, 2012, ABC decided to keep General Hospital on the air, while effectively cancelling The Revolution. ABC later announced that General Hospital would be moving to the 2 p.m. (ET) timeslot starting September 10, 2012, thus making it the lead-in for Katie on most of the ABC stations carrying the program. The first official promo for the show was released on June 14, 2012.

Katie premiered on Monday, September 10, 2012. The show airs at 3:00 p.m. (ET) on all eight ABC owned-and-operated stations, as part of their local schedules. Approximately 70 percent of the affiliates that carry the show in the 50 top U.S markets are ABC stations. Although affiliates are encouraged to air Katie during the 3:00 p.m. timeslot (ET), the actual airtime of the program varies from one market to another. In Canada, Katie runs nationwide on the Citytv network at 4:00 p.m. (ET/PT).

Format

Katie covers news and topics "that people care about". It is essentially a lifestyle show, but with news components to reflect Couric's background and interests. During an interview on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno in 2011, Couric said that she expected the show to cover various issues and be a mixture of The Oprah Winfrey Show and Today.

The executive producer of the program was former NBCUniversal CEO and former executive producer of Today, Jeff Zucker. He left the show on January 2013 to join CNN.

Episodes

The first season of Katie premiered on September 10, 2012 with a show featuring singer, actress and fashion designer Jessica Simpson in the first interview since her pregnancy and singer-songwriter, musician, and activist Sheryl Crow discussing motherhood and the controversy surrounding ex-boyfriend Lance Armstrong.
