Is Katie Couric trying to make a comeback?
The former 'Today' host wants to return to network television, according to Page Six, and has already been offered a deal. She wants to appear on NBC on a regular basis once her current contract with Yahoo expires.
The 60-year-old host appeared for a weeklong stint on the daytime talk show in early January alongside Matt Lauer while Savannah Guthrie was out on maternity leave.
Surprisingly, Couric's return to "Today" didn't move the needle when it came to ratings. ABC's "Good Morning America" beat the program in both total audience and the significant adult 25-54 demo for the first week of January.
While a return to NBC wouldn't be surprising, some things hang in the balance. She renewed her contract with Yahoo as its global news anchor in 2015 for $10 million, but it's unclear when exactly it's set to end.
Sources hinted at a possible decision that would put less on Couric's plate, claiming "she doesn't want that kind of grind."
In addition to her gig with Yahoo, she also manages her own production company and produces her own podcasts and documentaries.
The journalist has bounced around from network to network throughout her career. Following her 15-year run at "Today," she became the first female solo anchor at CBS' "Evening News" in 2006. She then left the network in 2011 and had a brief stint on ABC's "Good Morning America" in 2012. She then joined Yahoo in 2014.
