Katie Couric Admits to Today Show "Overtures"

by at .

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.

Would she ever revisit the topic and return to her old grounds at NBC?

Couric wouldn't rule it out, saying that Today was, in many ways, her "best job."

She also admitted to an old crush on Lauer, labeling him "funny and quick," two very different adjectives from the ones we hear these days about the host.

What do you think? Should Couric return to Today?
