KATIE COURIC
 
Current Status: Using TV as a stepping stone to web superstardom



Changing The Game By: Using the Web to build a whole new audience. Going online to host webcasts immediately after her on-air campaign coverage, to post behind the scenes videos of her interviews and travels on YouTube, to reach out to the Digg community with a tailor-made video appeal, and, most recently, to launch an Internet interview show, @katiecouric, has allowed Couric to show off her greatest strength -- her personality -- while in no way diminishing her serious news chops. It’s made Couric one of the Web’s strongest news brands, with an audience decades younger than the one she’s competing for in the increasingly irrelevant network news ratings war.



Question Of The Year: “What newspapers and magazines did you regularly read before you were tapped for this to stay informed and to understand the world?"
