Nothing newsworthy came out of the interview, but it’s nice to see Katie Couric and Matt Lauer back together; their chemistry is still there. Like the exchange when Lauer brought up the subject of Couric’s future: “Have you heard any good rumors recently?” Responded Couric, “No, have you?” She talked about the appeal of doing a syndicated daytime talk show. “What might appeal to me … is just the creative freedom to pick subjects and really dig deep,” she said. “It might be nice to have a little more wiggle room to show my personality.” As for the timeline for making the decision, “I don’t want to feel pressured from outside forces to make the decision quickly,” Couric said, adding that she expects to make up her mind “in the next few weeks.”
