How does Katie Couric feel about the reports that she's returning to TODAY during Savannah Guthrie's maternity leave?
At the New York City premiere of Couric's new documentary Fed Up on Tuesday, the journalist chatted with ET about the rumors running wild of her return to the NBC morning show.
"We'll see," said Couric, 57. "I'm pretty busy right now with this documentary, being the global news anchor at Yahoo, finishing up my day time show ...and my daughter is graduating from high school. And I'm getting married!"
Couric added, "That's very flattering, and I love my friends at NBC and it's very flattering, even the speculation."
Guthrie, who was also unable to confirm or deny the rumors, said, "She's one of the names I've heard, and I think it would be great. I love Katie. I'm one of the original Katie fans. She's one of the reasons I got into this business."
Couric became a TODAY show host in 1991 after she filled in for co-anchor Deborah Norville when she went on maternity leave. She stayed on the show and continued as an anchor until she left in 2006 to host the CBS Evening News.
TODAY sent ET a statement earlier this week in regards to the reports. It reads in part: "We are blessed with many options to temporarily fill Savannah's chair ...but there's no plan yet -- stay tuned."
