Katie Couric is an award winning journalist, producer, New York Times bestselling author, cancer advocate, podcast host and documentary filmmaker. She was co-anchor of the Today Show on NBC for 15 years before going to CBS and becoming the first woman anchor of a nightly news broadcast. After CBS, Katie moved to serve as the Global News Anchor at Yahoo News, where she interviewed prominent political and cultural figures as well as covering breaking news.
In 2015, Katie founded Katie Couric Media, her production company which centers around scripted and non-scripted projects that are committed to creating smart, trustworthy, relatable content that aims to tell the stories that need to be brought to awareness.
Projects under Katie Couric Media have included her National Geographic series “Gender Revolution” and “America Inside Out.” In Gender Revolution, Katie travels around the United States speaking to experts and learning about how our idea of gender has evolved throughout the years and highlighting the stories and experiences of trans and intersex individuals. In America Inside Out, Katie once again travels the country bringing into focus some of the most divisive subjects and themes present throughout our nation. Her most recent project was a partnership with The Skimm and P&G called “Getting There” which followed six successful women from diverse career backgrounds throughout their day and told their stories of how they got to where they are today.
In addition to all her projects at KCM, Katie also is the host of her own podcast on Stitcher called (very originally) “Katie Couric.” Katie’s long time friend and former producer at CBS, Brian Goldsmith joins her as co-host of the show which interviews a diverse and eclectic range of people in politics, media, and pop culture such as Ina Garten, James Comey, Amy Schumer, and Adam Grant to name a few.
In addition, Katie is one of the founders of Stand Up to Cancer and the National Colorectal Cancer Research Alliance. To this date, Stand Up to Cancer has raised over $600 million dollars that helps fund scientific teams researching and collaborating in an effort to find cures for different types of cancers.
