Earlier this month, it was reported that Couric is planning to leave CBS to front her own syndicated talkshow.
Should Couric reach a syndication agreement with NBC, network execs will apparently ask that the journalist host a series of regular segments on its flagship morning show on a part-time basis, sources told The New York Post's Page Six.
Couric hosted Today with Matt Lauer for more than a decade and anchored NBC's coverage of such major news events as the 2000 Winter Olympics and the 9/11 terrorist attacks before leaving to helm the CBS Evening News in 2006.
When reached for comment, Couric's rep would only confirm that the star is to make a one-time return to the NBC morning show next week.
"Katie and Matt will appear on the Today show together next Wednesday promoting her book (The Best Advice I Ever Got)," the rep said.
Last week, reports emerged suggesting that Today's current hosts Lauer and Meredith Vieira are both planning to leave the series.
