Book Report.

She doesn’t wait for you to ask. She’ll ask you first. This is the usual approach by former NBC Today co-host Katie Couric. Unabashed and not restrained by convention or social protocol. When she met her future husband she didn’t wait for him to approach her. She walked up to Jay Monahan and asked him to lunch. Just like that. Not too long after that they married. After a happy marriage, giving birth to two wonderful daughters, Jay dies of colorectal cancer. Bringing great sadness to America’s favorite morning show host. All the while hiding her emotions on-the-air.

The book: “Going There” by Katie Couric, autobiography 2021

A “girl’s” story about never allowing anything to stop her reporting of the day’s news. Or from keeping her from presenting to America’s TV morning audience interviews with interesting people. Couric’s live on-the-spot coverage of stories like the Columbine school massacre, interviewing a mom who killed all five of her children, co-hosting with Bryant Gumbel, anchoring the CBS Evening News and Couric’s later discovery of her former Today’s co-host Matt Lauer’s sudden firing. Lauer’s firing due to sexual improprieties

Again the book is, Going There by Katie Couric and published in 2021. The audio book is read by Couric herself. Read or listen to it. You might like it.
