Katie Couric: Will She Return to Today?

by at . Comments

Katie Couric may be on her way back to the chair that made her famous.

Insiders tell The New York Post and TMZ that Today producers may bring Couric back on a temporary basis once Savannah Guthrie takes off on maternity leave. 

Guthrie announced in mid-March that she's married to Mike Feldman and is five months along with her first child.

Couric is friends with Guthrie and, of course, remains very close to Matt Lauer.

And Today could certainly use the ratings bump, as it continues to get beaten on a weekly basis by Good Morning America.

Couric does have an exclusive contract with ABC, but it runs out mid-summer, coinciding nicely with when Guthrie would take extended time off.
