This fall, award-winning journalist, best-selling author and television personality Katie Couric will bring her distinctive voice and authentic interview style to daytime with the September 10th premiere of the hour-long, nationally-syndicated series, “Katie”. Distributed by Disney-ABC Domestic Television to 95% of the country, “Katie” will be broadcast live from New York City in front of a studio audience and will be executive-produced by Couric and longtime colleague Jeff Zucker, reuniting one of television’s most successful partnerships.
Blending information, stories of the day and entertainment in a format that is engaging, compelling and interesting, “Katie” will get to the heart of what matters most to viewers. Timely and topical, the show will include powerful segments and thoughtful interviews with newsmakers, celebrities and everyday people who have extraordinary stories to tell.

Couric announced at a gathering of television critics today in Los Angeles that the show, which will feature a mix of in-studio segments and field pieces, will be introduced each day by a memorable theme song entitled “This Day,” performed especially for the show by Grammy-winning artist Sheryl Crow and composed by both Crow and her long time collaborator Jeff Trott.
Crow said: “Katie is somebody I can talk to about the things so many of us juggle: our children, careers, health, and balancing our personal and professional lives. Plus she is really fun! I think her show will reflect the same kind of heart and energy I try to give my music, so ‘This Day’ was a fun project to work on together, as friends.”
Couric talked about several recurring franchises, including:
“Women Who Should Be Famous” which will feature headline-makers as well as everyday people who make a difference in how we live our lives. Viewers will be introduced to women whose leadership, commitment to excellence and passion for life are awe-inspiring. “In this franchise we will be able to spotlight women doing remarkable things,” Couric commented.
“You Only Live Once” (YOLO) is all about tackling one’s life-affirming bucket list. Whether Couric is providing a “dream come true” moment for one of her viewers or experiencing something that checks off one of her personal boxes, television audiences will be able to witness the excitement that comes with doing something on your wish list for the very first time.
“YOLO, which stands for ‘You Only Live Once,’ was coined by Drake and is sort of a modern twist on the notion of a bucket list,” Couric commented. “It will be fun to try some of these things myself, but I’m more excited to use the access we have to give other people opportunities to check off their lists,” she added.
“Katie” will focus on topics including parenting to pop culture, aging to activism, sex to celebrity, and the series will dedicate segments to the worlds of family, fashion, entertainment and technology and explore how they impact our day-to-day lives.
