SAN FRANCISCO (KCBS) – Just a day after Yahoo passed Google in terms of U.S. Web visitors, the company’s CEO Marissa Mayer is reportedly courting Katie Couric for a Web interview show on its homepage.
According to All Things D, Mayer is looking to strengthen the site’s media efforts. The show would center on exclusive interviews with high-profile celebrities, business executives and newsmakers, and would be prominently featured on Yahoo’s homepage.
Couric currently hosts the daytime talk show “Katie” on ABC and sources for All Things D said ABC would have to reach agreements about the scope of her role with Yahoo if the two sides come to an agreement.
