Disney-ABC and Katie Couric have announced that Katie is coming to an end in June 2014. In a joint statement, the two said, “While production will continue on Katie through June 2014, we’ve mutually agreed that there will not be a third season of the show… We’re very proud of everyone’s contributions to making Katie the #1 new syndicated talk show of 2012-2013, and we look forward to the rest of the season.”
Couric was expected to give the news to the show’s staff after today’s taping, the last before the scheduled holiday break.
Due to high costs and soft ratings, the show’s termination was not unexpected. Disney-ABC is working on finding a replacement series for the ABC stations.
What do you think? Will you be sorry to see Katie go?
