(NEW YORK POST) Hours before Katie Couric hosted a holiday party for staffers of her syndicated show “Katie,” she broke the news to them that it won’t be back for a third season.

Couric’s show had been rumored to be on its way to cancellation after a sluggish performance so far, and sources further said Couric herself had doubts about wanting to continue past the second season.

On Thursday, she and ABC made a joint announcement to pull the plug, saying, they’d “mutually agreed that there will not be a third season of the show.”
