(PAGESIX) — Despite all the rumors about Katie Couric returning to NBC, network sources tell us, “Katie is not welcome back at the ‘Today’ show.”
We’re told Couric is angling for a return to NBC now that it’s been announced that former boss Andrew Lack, who helped make her a star at “Today,” will be back as chairman of NBC News and MSNBC. He ran the news division for eight years until 2001.
The announcement set off speculation that Couric, who’s remained good friends with Lack, could unseat Brian Williams at “NBC Nightly News” or Savannah Guthrie at “Today.” Multiple news outlets reported Lack and Couric, who’s currently a global anchor at Yahoo, have had a preliminary discussion about her possible return to NBC.
