Katie Couric was a Today Show star, then a CBS News anchor and now she's headed for a talk show on ABC. Sarah Palin really doesn't like...

Katie Couric’s talk show Katie will be officials canceled after two up-and-down seasons, Disney, ABC and Katie Couric herself announced Thursday.

The show will continue production until June 2014, Deadline reports.

The talk show’s cancelation was not a surprise, given its rocky ratings.

Katie also suffered an identity crisis of sorts as it awkwardly tried to marry hard-hitting news interviews by Couric with much lighter daytime talk show fare.

ABC and Katie Couric said in a joint statement regarding the move:

“We’re very proud of everyone’s contributions to making Katie the #1 new syndicated talk show of 2012-13, and we look forward to the rest of the season."

Katie also recently closed a deal to become the face of Yahoo news at Yahoo, and will start appearing on the service next year, so she'll be doing okay.

Has Katie Couric, who signed a deal three years ago for her daytime talk show, Katie, and a role at ABC News, already signed a new deal with Yahoo?

According to reports, she has, although no details have been released just yet on what the former Today superstar will be doing with the company.

Despite its low ratings, her talk show could still press on, considering that the syndicated program was separate from her deal with ABC News.

Although the network declined comment, an exec reportedly told THR, "Katie is an incredible journalist and this was an opportunity that she couldn't pass up."

"Thanks to the powerful association between ABC and Yahoo we know that Katie will continue to work closely with us and welcome her on our air anytime."

Katie Couric has moved on from her feud with Kim Kardashian.

And into the arms of John Molner! For life!

Yes, the talk show host is now engaged to her long-time boyfriend, following a romantic proposal a few days ago in East Hampton, New York. Romantic and totally unexpected, we should say.

"He said that there was a reason he'd brought me there to the beach, and that he loved me and was committed to me, and I said, 'Yeah, I know that, you didn't have to bring me here to tell me that,' " Couric tells People. "Finally he said, 'Couric, I'm trying to propose to you,' and I was stunned."

She typically reports the news, but now Katie Couric is the news:

This former CBS anchor and current talk show host is engaged!

The journalist's rep confirms to People that Couric accepted the romantic proposal of boyfriend John Molner over the weekend, as he popped life's most pressing question in East Hampton during sunset.

Molner - the head of mergers and acquisitions at Brown Brothers Harriman - and Couric went public with their relationship in April of last year.

Couric, whose husband died in 1998 of colon cancer, recently made headlines for getting into a beef with Kim Kardashian.

But that's in the past and a life with the man she loves is in her future. We send our best wishes to this couple!

Katie Couric claims her baby gift to Kim Kardashian, which the reality star took her to task for, was a nice gesture, and that she never slammed Kim or her family.

Kim put Katie Couric on blast Friday when she Instagrammed a pic of the talk show host's card and gift for little North West with the hashtag #IHateFakeMediaFriends.

She added: #MayIHumblySuggestYouNotSendGiftsThenTalkShit.

Kim Kardashian was furious with the gift, since Katie recently said in an interview that she didn't understand why she and her family are famous.

None of us do, honestly, and Katie says this was just a true statement.

One which she said was made with no ill intent toward the Kards:

Kim Kardashian has kept mostly quiet since becoming a mother, only really taking to social media to wish her loved ones a happy birthday or thank her fans for support.

Or, apparently, to tear Katie Couric a new one.

Kim Kardashian Slams Katie Couric

In an interview with In Touch this month, Couric was asked about the Kardashians and wondered aloud why they're famous, adding: "I think it's mostly teenage girls that are interested."

This comment didn't sit very well with Kim.

She posted a photo today on Instagram of Couric's gift for North West, along with the reporter's message, and included with it two of her own, hashtag style:

In an interview with Howard Stern that is sure to make his wife extremely pleased, Today host Matt Lauer says Katie Couric is "very attractive."

Like 9-out-of-10 hot. Maybe even 10-out-of-10!

Matt Lauer and Katie Couric

Guess that on-air chemistry that produced years and years of ratings wins - ones that seem like a distant memory for maligned Matt now - was real.

“She’s a very attractive woman, not only physically but her personality,” Lauer gushed of his former co-host. “If she’s a 9 or 10 physically, she’s a 14 overall."

"Because ... she’s just got a great personality. She’s fun.”

We have no doubt. But down boy. Cold shower time.

In an interview this week with Howard Stern, Katie Couric acknowledged a return to The Today Show has at least been broached between her and her former bosses.

The talk shot host worked alongside Matt Lauer for years and the morning program never really recovered from her departure, dropping to record-low ratings over the past few months.

"There were some cautious overtures to me to possibly come back to the Today Show but then they sort of evaporated," Couric told Stern.

Katie Couric has perfected the art of easy conversation on TV.

Easy, nutritious meals for her kids? That's more challenging.

One ingredient that's always the menu, however? Milk.

"When you're adding milk to your breakfast you're getting all sorts of added benefits," says the talk-show host in a new ad with girls Ellie, 21, and Carrie, 17.

"You're getting protein when you put it in your cereal," observes Katie, a paid spokesperson for the National Milk Mustache "Got Milk?" campaign.

With Ann Curry long gone, with Matt Lauer facing constant criticism and with Today ratings falling each week, producers are reportedly turning to their the only woman they see as a possible savior:

KATIE COURIC!

“They’re calling Katie and begging for her to return, saying the morning couch on NBC is where she belongs," an insider supposedly tells The National Enquirer. "They want her to save Matt and the show.”
