"It is tremendously exciting to have creative freedom to develop my own show ... and to contribute to such a vibrant, innovative news division."

Since leaving the chair of the CBS Evening News last month after five years, Couric has been rumored to be developing a daytime talk show.

While the format has yet to be finalized, Couric is excited to get to work: "I can't wait to be part of this incredibly talented, visionary team."
