With Oprah Winfrey gone from daytime, Katie Couric will be trying out the job of being a daytime talk show host.  Couric, the former “CBS Evening News” anchor and “Today” show host will have her own talk show.  The announcement was made yesterday, shortly after Couric’s replacement for the evening news was made, naming Scott Pelley the new anchor, officially.

Couric will have a part ownership stake in her new show.  Jeff Zucker, the former NBC Universal chief, will be executive director.  Zucker was in the control room during Couric’s first few years on the “Today” show.  No name yet for the new talk show, but it will be based in New York and premiere no earlier than September of 2012.

Couric’s show will be syndicated at 3pm and rumor has it, her show could bump “General Hospital” from their time slot into another.  However, the network stated “it continues to support the long-running soap,” according to CNN.com.
