Katie is ready to interview Michael Bloomberg, NYC’s Mayor on Friday, March 14th. She is to do this first interview in the capacity of a Yahoo News global anchor.

Marissa Mayer has made some wise decisions besides the shopping sprees she made for her giant startup’s sake. As CEO of Yahoo, she has a responsibility that she takes very seriously. Recently, the blonde and beautiful Marissa brought in a team of newscasters which included the illustrious and charming Katie Couric

Katie Couric has just launched her tumbler account as global news anchor for Yahoo. She stated on her tumblr:

"Welcome to my new Tumblr!  I’m really looking forward to connecting with you here, and seeing all the questions, photos and video you want to share. 

As I begin my new role as Global Anchor for Yahoo, I want to hear from you.  What stories matter most to you, and which people do you find most interesting? 

I’ve been really fortunate to have the opportunity to talk to some fascinating people in my career, from presidents and heads of state to celebrities and newsmakers of the moment.

I want you to come along with me this time, to give you a window into their lives and have your voice be heard."

Katie’s first assignment is to be an interesting interview with NYC Mayor, Michael Bloomberg. The Mayor will speak quite frankly on subjects ranging from smoking to super-sized soft drinks to gun ownership. The next step on Bloomberg’s agenda is a sort of deep environmentalism that will stretch out to reach global audiences. 

Katie further states, "And first up is former NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg.  From gun control to smoking to obesity, he’s never been shy about tackling tough or controversial issues.  Now in his new role at the United Nations he’s taking on climate change…in cities all around the world.

What would you ask Michael Bloomberg?"

This is going to be Bloomberg’s first ever public interview since he left his seat as Mayor of New York. Katie set up a forum for obtaining responses and suggestions from her fans and followers regarding what questions she ought to ask Bloomberg. 

In the capacity of Global Anchor for Yahoo, Katie is positively attuned to the opinions of her audience. With Bloomberg she will be discussing everything from the obesity epidemic to firearms control. 

Katie is thankful that she got a platform from which to operate. She is an asset for Yahoo and will immensely benefit the search engine. Marissa certainly has good choice. 

Her handpicked entries in the Yahoo news reporting team are a source of pride for the behemoth organization. Especially the gaining of sympathy and empathy from such social networks as Tumblr will increase the PR of these news commentators. 

Like they say, a picture is worth a thousand words. So a moving picture that presents the interview with Bloomberg live to the entire world online is worth ten thousand words. 

Every movement of his will tell a great deal about his personal ideas. The body language will reveal more than the words. Words are cheap. It is the attitudes and idiosyncrasies that reveal the whole man. And Katie Couric will be there to grill him on every subject underneath the sun.
