Katie Couric's Talk Show Gets a Name

Like Oprah and Ellen, the former CBS News anchor is sticking to tradition and lopping off her last name

Looks like Katie Couric sees no point in reinventing the wheel. 

For the title of her upcoming daytime talk show, the former CBS News anchor is taking a page from Oprah Winfrey, Ellen DeGeneres and others and lopping off her last name.

Set to premiere in Fall 2012, Couric's daytime gabfest will be called "Katie," TVNewser reports.

A spokesman for Couric declined comment and a spokesman for ABC could not be reached. 

TVNewser's article also includes some promotional materials for the show and they're gauzy, inviting and heavy on the pinks and purples.
