"KATIE" GARNERS OUTSTANDING CLEARANCES WITH OVER 60% OF THE COUNTRY SOLD IN JUST SIX WEEKS

Highly Anticipated Talker to Premiere in Fall 2012 On Preeminent Stations Across the Country

BURBANK, CA. - In a period of only six weeks, Katie Couric's highly anticipated nationally syndicated talk show, "Katie," has already been cleared in over 60% of the country, it was announced today by Janice Marinelli, president, Disney-ABC Domestic Television. "Katie" is slated to premiere in September 2012.

Disney-ABC Domestic Television has secured outstanding station clearances and key early fringe time periods for the one-hour daily daytime talk show. Sales to date include 14 out of the top 15 markets. In addition to the previously announced ABC Owned station group, "Katie" has now been sold to leading stations from broadcast groups including Allbritton Communications, Belo Corporation, Cox Media Group, Gannett Broadcasting, Hearst Television, LIN Broadcasting, McGraw-Hill, Scripps Howard Broadcasting and Young Broadcasting. The most recent Katie clearances include WFAA Dallas, WCVB Boston, WSB Atlanta, WJLA Washington DC, WXYZ Detroit, KNXV Phoenix, KING Seattle and WFTS Tampa, among others.

"To have garnered such exceptional clearances in this short period of time is attributable to the enduring strength of the Katie Couric brand and her wide-ranging appeal as one of the brightest, most talented and most dynamic personalities in the business," commented Marinelli. "We are enormously pleased to partner with such a stellar group of stations across the country."

In June the Disney/ABC Television Group signed a multi-year, multi-platform agreement with the award-winning journalist, best-selling author and popular TV personality. In addition to hosting the new nationally syndicated program "Katie," which is set to premiere in September 2012, Couric currently serves as a member of the ABC News team. "Katie" will be produced in conjunction with Disney-ABC and Jeff Zucker will be the executive producer.
