Katie Couric is leaving her full-time post at Yahoo and is also departing agency CAA for WME.

The journalist had been global anchor for Yahoo News — a position created for her in 2013. She re-upped with a $10 million deal in 2015, the same year she became a special contributor for ABC News as part of an expanded partnership between the two companies. Rather than extending her contract with Yahoo parent company Oath, Couric has struck a pact to work with the Verizon subsidiary on a project basis.

Couric has been active as a producer with multiple outlets, including developing Netflix’s Unbelievable, a scripted drama based on the Pulitzer-winning ProPublica article “An Unbelievable Story of Rape” and produced by CBS TV Studios, National Geographic’s upcoming six-part docuseries follow-up to her special Gender Revolution: A Journey With Katie Couric earlier this year, and FYI’s Scraps, a cooking and travel show hosted by chef Joel Gamoran. Couric herself is featured with husband John Molner on the cooking web series Full Plate With Katie & John, and she continues to host an eponymous podcast featuring leaders in news, politics and pop culture as guests, including Alec Baldwin, Samantha Bee, Nate Silver, Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Sen. Al Franken.

oh brother

Let us all hope and pray that she slinks in to oblivion and away from public eye as quickly as possible. This woman causes the long suffering and quickly disappearing viewer to shriek the phrase “FAKE NEWS” every time she makes an appearance, and the mainstream media would do well to remake itself by not including her in their future plans.
