Couric hosts and executive produces her own syndicated daytime talk show, Katie, which premiered in national syndication last September.

Couric is a tireless advocate for cancer research and awareness. She is a co-founder of Stand Up To Cancer (SU2C), an organization that has raised nearly $200 million in funds to accelerate research that can get new therapies to patients quickly. In May 2008, she and other network news anchors participated in the first SU2C broadcast, an unprecedented effort that culminated in a one-hour, commercial-free, primetime program on ABC, CBS, and NBC in September 2008.
