The new syndicated talk show, featuring Katie Couric, Katie, will premiere on Monday, September 10th if the production remains on schedule. And, so far Katie has been fairly smooth sailing as it heads toward broadcast.
Zucker also announced a couple of key additions to the show staff.
Joe Terry, who spent 14 years as the director of The Oprah Winfrey Show, has been named director, and Kathy Samuels has been hired as co-executive producer. Samuels had a hand in launching Rachael Ray and Access Hollywood.
“We couldn’t be more excited about September 10,” Zucker said, in making the announcements. “It’s going to be a lot of fun.”
