Katie Couric is going back to her roots.
The anchor is rejoining ABC for a news show that is still in development, she said in a statement today: "I'm very happy to be returning to the network where I began my career as a desk assistant in 1979."
"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."
