Katie Couric Takes a Pay Cut at Yahoo: Report
Landing the ultimate part-time job, Katie Couric will rake in $6 million annually at her new job as "Global Anchor" for Yahoo, according to a news report delivered on Sunday (December 15).
Although she will take a considerable hit in the pay department, as compared to her company's $20 million-per-year contract with ABC, however, no one can argue bringing in that kind of money for a part-time job!
Telling The Associated Press in November that she was hoping to conquer the Internet after 22 years as a conventional television talk show host, the 56-year-old said, "I am particularly excited about hopefully attracting other people to this platform and venture. We are in a major, transformative time in terms of media in this country."
As for her new position at Yahoo, the talk show host stated, "I will be involved in developing a lot of concepts, but not necessarily doing everything. I will be doing interviews, but not only a daily basis. Probably monthly at this point."
