Will Katie Couric Be on the Today Show

NBC bosses are looking at yesterday for the future of “Today.”

Katie Couric is being considered as a substitute co-host for the “Today” show when co-host Savannah Guthrie goes on maternity leave this year, network sources tell the Daily News.

“It makes perfect sense,” an NBC News staffer said. “The viewers loved her and Matt Lauer together. This would be a chance to give them exactly what they want.” Guthrie, 42, is five months pregnant and expected to be away from the show for a few months beginning in late summer.

NBC officials cautioned that there have been no official talks with Couric’s camp about the fill-in job and that another fan favorite, Meredith Vieira, has also been suggested as a possibility, along with current “internal talent.”

“With the ‘Today’ show in a good place, we are blessed with great talent and many options to temporarily fill Savannah’s chair while she’s on leave, but there’s no plan yet,” an NBC News spokeswoman said. “Stay tuned.”

Couric, 57, left “Today” in 2006 to become anchor of the “CBS Evening News” and then joined ABC in 2011. The Disney-owned company distributed her daytime talk show while she also served as a special news correspondent contributing to “Today” archrival “Good Morning America” and other news programming.

Buzz of Couric’s potential return to NBC News appears to have begun over cocktails at a star-studded event to celebrate the redesign of The New York Observer.

As boldfaced names like Martha Stewart, Ray Kelly and ex-Giants star Justin Tuck mingled, Lauer and Couric casually discussed how “cool” it might be if she sat in for Guthrie, a partygoer said reports Daily News.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
