Katie Couric officially joined ABC today and has been given a syndicated talk show and a role at ABC News, plus ABC mapped out the new daytime schedule and issued a statement about “General Hospital.”
How long will it be around? You put the pieces of the puzzle together…
Here’s the situation: Katie’s untitled show will debut in September 2012 and film in New York but she will begin anchoring ABC News specials starting this summer.
Couric’s new talk show will air at 3PM and will join “The Chew’” and “The Revolution” as part of ABC daytime.
ABC said in a simple one-line statement they “continue to support ‘General Hospital’” but wouldn’t say if the show will be around when Katie’s talk show premieres.
So what do you think?
