Katie Couric returns to NBC, will co-host Winter Olympics opening ceremony


After she left the show, she anchored CBS Evening News for five years, then hosted her own talk show on ABC for two years, and then worked as the Global Anchor of Yahoo!

For this year's coverage, NBC has announced the opening ceremony will be live-streamed for the first time on NBCOlympics.com and the NBC Sports app.

Katie Couric is returning to NBC to cohost the Opening Ceremony of the Winter Olympics in PyeongChang, South Korea on February 9, the network announced on Wednesday, Jan. 17. NBCUniversal will also stream the event live.

Couric co-hosted with Lauer on "Today" from 1997 to 2006.

She joked at a news conference Wednesday that she and Tirico "go way back, to 45 minutes ago".

Additionally, Joshua Cooper Ramo rejoins NBC's Opening Ceremony coverage.

The thaw in relations between North and South Korea - however temporary - adds an intriguing element to an Olympics that has had little advanced buzz.

Katie Couric is excited to cohost the Winter Olympics in South Korea with Mike Tirico.

It means NBC is braced for a dip in its prime-time ratings, something that might be expected anyway because live television viewership in general is down from four years ago.

The Peacock came under fire when NBC Sports executive John Miller said people who watch the Olympics are not necessarily sports fans, "More women watch the games than men, and for the women, they're less interested in the result and more interested in the journey". "But I just think media gravity takes us that way".

Also, NBC still doesn't know whether or not an interview with President Trump will be featured at all during the Olympics.
