Katie Couric reveals 'Today' show overtures

Katie Couric revealed this week that the possibility of reuniting with Matt Lauer on "Today" was talked about at one time.

Couric, who has her own syndicated talk show, "Katie," appeared on Howard Stern's Sirius XM radio show on Tuesday and talked about the possibility of she and her former co-anchor getting back together.

Stern told Couric that she should step in and straighten out the troubles at "Today," which began with the ousting of co-anchor Ann Curry last summer. Now the once top-rated morning show is trailing ABC's "Good Morning America."


"Matt and I had talked about teaming up and doing a show at some point. There were some cautious overtures to me to possibly come back to the "Today" show, but then they sort of evaporated," she said

Would she ever go back?

"Part of me, for me, that was the best job," she said as an answer.

She also spoke to Stern about the possibility of teaming with Lauer again, admitting that they have great chemistry. But, as she explained, "We have a brother-sister type relationship."

Stern recorded three hours of interview material with Couric last week. An edited one-hour version aired on her show Tuesday.
