Gearing up for her fall talk show, Katie Couric launches new web series for ABC and Yahoo

On the heels of Katie Couric’s much-ballyhooed guest-anchoring of ABC’s “Good Morning America,” ABC News announced Wednesday that she will host a weekly digital video series from ABC News and Yahoo — which will be featured on a dedicated page on Yahoo.

In each episode of “Katie’s Take,” the ABC News special correspondent will provide her own “fun and unique” perspective on the subject of health, nutrition, parenting and “wellness.” Look for exciting episodes that examine the myth of so-called “healthy” snacks, the dangers of over-parenting, the correlation between menopause and sleeplessness, and special segments on fitness and finance, ABC News said.

“I am happy to have found a place in the digital world where I can cut through fads and trends,” Couric said in the announcement.

“Poland Spring, along with our other regional 100% natural spring water brands — Arrowhead®, Deer Park®, Ice Mountain®, Ozarka®, and Zephyrhills® — are born better,” added Poland Spring Brand Manager Sarah Linden. Poland Spring Natural Spring Water is the series’ exclusive launch partner.

Last summer, Couric signed a deal with ABC parent Disney to host a new syndicated daytime TV show that launches in September. That contract also puts her to work for ABC News — hence the much-covered “GMA” guest gig while Robin Roberts vacationed.
