Katie Couric To Appear On 'The View'

Katie Couric will soon get some practice at hosting her own daytime talk show, thanks to “The View.”

Executive producer Bill Geddie said Wednesday that Couric will be a guest co-host on the ABC talk show airing live on Aug. 3.

Last month, it was announced that ABC and Disney had signed Couric as host and producer of a one-hour nationally syndicated talk show premiering in September 2012. She also is joining the ABC News team.

Couric was a longtime co-anchor of NBC’s “Today” show and, until May, anchored the “CBS Evening News.”

“The View” airs weekdays at 11 a.m. Eastern time. Its regular panel of co-hosts includes Barbara Walters, Whoopi Goldberg, Joy Behar, Elisabeth Hasselbeck and Sherri Shepherd.
