The former CBS Evening News presenter signed a deal in June to host and produce a daily one-hour daytime TV show for ABC. The network released some marketing materials for the talkshow earlier today, unveiling the name of the series.
The programme will be known simply as Katie, following in the footsteps of similarly-titled programmes such as Anderson Cooper's forthcoming daytime talk show Anderson, Ellen DeGeneres's Ellen and Oprah Winfrey's Oprah, according to TVNewser.
Syndicators reportedly hope that Katie will serve as a replacement for Oprah. The popular talkshow concluded its 25-year run on May 25.
Couric's show will reportedly blend elements of The Oprah Winfrey Show and Today, focusing on a variety of issues including include bullying and the impact of technology on children.
She recently co-hosted an episode of The View, joining the ABC daytime show during its final week of season 14 in early August.
Katie will premiere in fall 2012 on ABC.
