I’ve admittedly uttered this line before going on camera but luckily I’ve never had the misfortune of saying it when I’m live on air. “I so pale!” The funniest part is that once the reporter realizes she’s on camera she zooms right into reporter mode. I know her co-anchor was trying to be nice by nudging her and saying “you’re on air,” but she really should have took the reigns and read the teleprompter — it would have been less awkward.
TMZ.com reports that popular newscaster, Katie Couric and network ABC are close to signing a $20 million deal that would grant Couric her own talk show as well as guarantee her involvement in ABC news in a large way.
The deal is apparently in its final stages. Couric would be featured anchoring and doing ABC News specials such as “20/20″ and have a 5-day a week talk show. ABC’s airtime schedule is already very jam packed, so something would have to be cut in place of Couric’s talk show.
Sources affiliated with ABC claim that ABC’s long-running soap opera, “General Hospital” may take the fall so that Couric’s show would premiere in September 2012.
Unfortunately the beloved Matt Lauer will not be involved. Hopefully we can expect a more informative show, something better than the Tyra Banks talk show.
