Katie Couric to end daytime television show

By Brian Stelter, CNN

Katie Couric's days in daytime are almost over.

The television personality, once beloved as the co-host of NBC's "Today" show, said Thursday that she would not continue her daytime talk show, "Katie," after the current television season ends in the summer. The announcement reflected the fact that her show, while successful by some measures, had fallen short of the high expectations that Couric and others had set for it.

Couric and the company that syndicated "Katie," the Disney-ABC Television Group, said they had "mutually agreed" not to continue the show.

Once depicted, if not by Couric and Disney (DIS,Fortune 500) then by the press, as a logical successor to "The Oprah Winfrey Show," "Katie" suffered from behind-the-scenes disagreements about content. Couric, for example, was said to want a more topical, news-oriented hour of television, while Disney executives wanted softer subject matter that was more in line with other daytime programming.

    After I initially commented I clicked the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and now each time a comment is added I get four emails with the same comment. Is there any approach you'll be able to take away me from that service? Thanks!

    Considering that he�s constantly had a flair for the moment it wouldn�t surprise me if Jeter shakes his existing funk. There have been HOF forms - Molitor and Henderson by way of example - who had been still pretty elite right after turning 40.
