There are rumors swirling that Katie Couric's new daytime show may not be renewed for a third season, the New York Post reported Monday.
Couric's staff has had a high turnover since the departure of Jeff Zucker, who left to run CNN, in January. Sources told the Post that the changes have created a “very stressful” situation with “staffing weirdness” and “no one making decisions.” The newspaper reported that there have also been rumors that Couric could leave after the second season to join Zucker at CNN.
Sources close to Couric, however, denied the rumors.
Since Zucker exited the show, there have a number of major staff shakeups. Michael Morrison, formerly the executive producer of "The Martha Stewart Show," replaced him, only to leave a few months later amidst reports that he had been "marginalized." Michael Bass, another top producer, also left to join Zucker at CNN.
"Katie" was renewed for a second season earlier this year. It was the highest rated program of the talk shows that premiered in September 2012. The show also seemed to be hitting its stride, as Couric scored scoops with Manti Te'o and wanted to balance newsy interviews with fluffier daytime segments.
