The couple - who met at a 2006 fundraiser for cancer research - were "at different stages in their careers," according to a friend of the ABC correspondent, adding: "The split was inevitable."

Couric's husband, Jay Monahan, died of colon cancer in 1998. He was 42.

Couric will debut her new talk show on ABC in May, while she hosts a two-hour year-end special on December 15, looking back at various newsmakers from 2011. Looks like she can now include herself in that group.
