Could one of TV's most adorable twosomes be reuniting?
Now that Katie Couric has officially announced that she will be leaving the CBS Evening News, sources are buzzing that she may team up with old pal Matt Lauer for a new gig. While it looks like Couric will be getting her own syndicated talk show, Lauer may be looking for a new home if he decides to leave the Today show when his contract expires in 2012. And it seems like Katie would love to have her former cohost back by her side.
"Matt and I have undeniable chemistry in the most platonic sense of the word," Couric told People.com. "We are like an old, married couple. We finish each other's sentences. He is very committed to the Today show. But who knows?"
As of right now, Lauer insists he's not looking for a new job. On Tuesday night, he appeared on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon and said, "I love my job. I have a long term contract. I'm not going anywhere."
Still, Couric says reteaming with Matt is always a possibility.
"You never know what the future may bring," she says. "We may work together. It's hard to say right now. We have a fun repartee."
