Skip to comments.Lack of star power in Katie Couric's interviews leaves Yahoo executives unhappy

Katie Courics role as global news anchor at Yahoo is under scrutiny by the Internet companys honchos including CEO Marissa Mayer who are wondering why the peppy former talk-show host isnt bringing in big-name interviews.
Her bosses are unhappy, says our source. They thought Katie was a huge get and that huge stars would follow, with major interviews. Instead shes had two that are memorable, and one was a book tour.
In Courics debut interview for the site, she did a 52-minute sit-down with former Defense Secretary Robert Gates in January. He was promoting his book, Duty: Memoirs of a Secretary at War, about his roles in the Bush and Obama administrations.
In March, Couric interviewed former mayor Michael Bloomberg, discussing charter schools in his first major interview since leaving office last December.
It was announced last November that Couric took the job at Yahoo for $6 million a year.

Why is Yahoo surprised?!?
Blech! I don’t wanna see her colonoscopy pics!
Ideology makes stupid people out of smart people.
Or maybe weren't so smart in the first place.
She is soooooo gross.
Man that party LOL!
I turn on ABC 7 and Im shocked this b*tch still has her own show. I thought ABC came to their senses and canceled her pathetic little program
“...the peppy former talk-show host isnt bringing in big-name interviews.”
They misspelled “perky”. Or is it “postperky”?
Her ABC/Disney show will be off the air in September.
Finally..one less moron on TV to worry about..now when is MSNBC officially gonna get canned
Perky ain’t perkin’.
Noted for her:
“Some say ... “
“There are those who say ... “
She never does identify who the “some” or “those” are.
Of course, everyone could play that game:
“Some say the moon is made out of green cheese.”
“There are those who say global warming is real.”
“There are those who say that those who say global warming is real are full of bovine excrement.”
MSNBC will never be canned. Comcast had to turn over full control of the channel to the RATS in order to get Holder’s approval of the NBC Universal takeover. Now that Comcast wants to take over Time Warner Cable, Holder will continue to demand RAT control of MSNBC in exchange for approval of that takeover, too.
Has it occured to her bosses that the perpetually adolescent FAKERY from a middle aged woman is OLD and distasteful?? The Tinkerbell perkiness is laughable- its the same for Kelly Ripa- adult women dressing and acting like anorexic teens is goofy. They expect gravitas from her? Really? Would they expect the Queen of England to give a serious interview to Mickey Mouse??
Good. I am glad they’re unhappy. Leftists are mad at leftists. This is a win-win situation.
Archaeoperky and pseudoperky.
If they had sincerely wanted her to get quality guests, they should have made it a contractual matter. You get paid big bucks for big guests. No big guests, no big bucks.
If she really wants to impress the honchos at Yahoo, let her suggest the same thing she did a few years ago, to help America be more fond of Muslims, let Yahoo host a Muslim Comedy Show.
Given that Yahoo had to cut more than 30 employees to pay for Katie’s $6 million/year contract, it’s not surprising that people at Yahoo are unhappy.
The first way to know when you’re not watching real news is when you see politicians and bureaucrats on the show for an “interview” or any other personal appearance. All teevee news (ALL...Fox “News” included) cherish their access to these hacks and holding that access over the media assures nothing outside of accepted standards is ever pursued. The Sunday morning shows are some of the worst. This isn’t news...it’s processed news product.
Seriously, she reminds me of my grandmother. Now, I love my Nana to death but I wouldn’t turn in to watch on tv every day.
Couric the castrator.
Katie wore out her knee-pads long ago.
The sad part of it is she IS cute and perky. But when she gives you that leftist “stare of death” you KNOW where she really stands.
Another triumph of our leftist educational system, taking a normal, red-blooded American girl and turning her head into a tsantsa full of leftist vitriole.
I salute the Gods of photoshop!
“Well, train, train, take me on out of this town”
Any thoughts on her Yahoo! lead balloon?
