Engaged: Katie Couric and Wall Street banker John Molner, her rep confirmed to People. It will be a second marriage for the broadcast news star, who lost husband Jay Monahan to cancer in 1998. In more recent years, the 56-year-old has enjoyed a lively dating career that is the fascination of baby-boom women everywhere — boyfriends including a jazz trumpeter, Chris Botti, producer/baseball mogul Tom Werner, and a 17-years-younger entrepreneur Brooks Perlin, with whom she split in late 2011. A more conventional age difference, though, with Molner, 50, a partner at Brown Brothers Harriman, whom she started dating in spring 2012 and made her red-carpet debut with in May.
