Katie Couric dished on her dating past in an interview with Howard Stern on Tuesday.

Couric has spoken out about various past romantic encounters — maybe most notably her very awkward date with Larry King — before. She revealed on Stern's radio show that she also once went out with Bob Saget and "Survivor" host Jeff Probst. Couric recalled that Saget "was fun, he was really fun." On Probst, she said that he wore "puka shells" on the date, which she thought "was kind of a weird thing."

Neither of them followed up on thee dates, which Stern pressed her about. "I can't say that I was devastated that neither called me back," Couric admitted. "I thought they were both nice guys . . . I don't think there was real magic there with either [of them], but I enjoyed spending time with them."

She also recalled the time that Michael Jackson tried to broker a date with her through his rabbi Shmuley Boteach, who called her office at "Today."

Couric has been dating financier John Molner for the past year. Prior to that, she dated ex-boyfriend Brooks Perlin for five years.
