Executive Producer Jeff Zucker Announces Key Updates, Hires for Katie Couric's Upcoming Syndicated Daytime Show

Executive Producer Jeff Zucker today announced key production updates for Katie Couric's highly anticipated nationally syndicated talk show, "Katie." The live, weekday show has already been cleared in 94% of the country, and will premiere on Monday, September 10, 2012. The show is distributed by Disney-ABC Domestic Television.

In an internal webcast to television stations that will air "Katie," Zucker unveiled the show's logo, and announced additions to the senior production staff including Director Joe Terry, who has spent the last 14 years as Director for "The Oprah Winfrey Show," and Co-Executive Producer Kathy Samuels. Samuels is a producer with nearly 20 years of television experience, including live television and daytime talk show programming at NBC, Paramount Domestic, and CBS, and has been a part of several successful launch teams, including "Rachael Ray" and "Access Hollywood." Zucker will serve as the day-to-day showrunner.

The webcast was conducted from TV One at ABC's Manhattan headquarters, which will serve as home to the "Katie" set. The studio itself has a rich history, having served as the backdrop to the Kennedy/Nixon Presidential debates, and has housed broadcast programming including "Good Morning America" and election night coverage. "Katie" will broadcast live, weekdays in front of a studio audience.

"Katie and I are thrilled to share these updates with our partners and Katie's fans," said Zucker. "We now have our studio, a great-looking logo that exudes all of the qualities that we want the show to convey, and a terrific team with a diverse background of experience. We couldn't be more excited about September 10. It's going to be a lot of fun."

Katie Couric is an award-winning journalist, best-selling author and popular TV personality. In addition to hosting the new nationally syndicated program "Katie," Couric is also a member of the ABC News team. "Katie" will be executive produced by Katie Couric and Jeff Zucker and is distributed by Disney-ABC Domestic Television.
