Spencer made the announcement on "GMA" Thursday. Stephanopoulos told Roberts, "You get to throw away your alarm clock for the week and she has to dust hers off."

Couric also shared the new on Twitter Thursday: "Rise + shine! Excited to be back on morning TV next wk, guest hosting @GMA w/ @GStephanopoulos. #KatieOnGMA."

The "GMA" stint marks the first time Couric has co-hosted a morning show since she left "Today" in 2006.
