Katie Couric to visit Atlanta tomorrow

Katie Couric will be in Atlanta on Tuesday to promote her new daytime talk show, launching this fall.

The longtime broadcast journalist doesn’t have public appearances planned but she’ll be visiting Channel 2, where some lucky viewer will get the chance to meet her. (The station wrapped up a contest for the Couric meet and greet last week).

The new show, “Katie,” kicks off at 3 p.m. Sept. 10 on Channel 2. Her website and Twitter feed have already begun promoting the program.

It looks like one of the first episodes will tackle hair care crises.

“Hate Your Hair? Wish it was curlier, straighter, lighter?” the show’s website asks. “Worried about greys, thinning? Addicted to appliances? Share your hair nightmare! Send us a photo or video and we may contact you for a hair rescue.”

The site also invites viewers to share their stories of enduring a “sexless marriage” and to send in video clips of things they’ve always dreamed of doing. And they’d also like to hear from you if you just love Katie.

“Are you Katie’s number one fan?” the site asks. “Do you live in the New York City/tri-state area? We want to hear from you! Send us a photo of yourself and tell us why you’re head over heels for Katie.”

(Sorry, Atlanta fans).

Here’s a video clip billed as a “sneak peek,” in which she thanks her parents for her great childhood.

Hi Katie,

You must come back to the Carolinas, but to North Carolina. I suggest Brunswick County on the coast of NC or rather a ficticious county in NC known in my novel as Southwick County. Check out my novel, Public Servant, on Amazon. You’ll absolutely LOVE it. A terrific beach read.

BTY, love your clothes. Have you ever thought of a clothing line?

Blessings and best wishes on your new show,

I suppose I understand why the networks would put this “journalist” back on since lots of folks watch her. However, it is difficult to understand why those mental midgets would actual watch anything she does.

WTF

Watch Katie Couric or go outside and watch the grass grow? I’m picking watch the grass grow.
I will admit she is the cutest little back stabber on TV.

Hmmm

Oh I don’t know. Maybe it has something to do with years of watching her set people up with her cute smile then stabbing them in the back.
I have no respect for her as a journalist, I don’t like the woman, and I really do like watching grass grow.

Wow how the mighty have fallen. A few years ago she was sitting in Walter Cronkite’s chair and now she is going to debut talking about bad hair days

George: Officially, “Katie” is a syndicated show that will air on many ABC stations. “General Hospital” will move up an hour in most cities to make room for it.

There seems to be a mistake in the 2nd paragraph. It says, ” some lucky viewer will get the chance to meet her.” I believe that should be, “some unlucky viewer will get the chance to meet her.”

The ATL will fawn over a Retread… the norm for the ATL (the town that praises mediocrity)!

I am a General Hospital fan. I have been a fan for over 25 years. I will NOT be watching her new show and I think it’s terrible that she is taking over a time slot held for so long.

Can someone tell me if General Hospital will be shown at another time or will it be gone from WSB?
