Katie Couric's New ABC Talk Show

ABC announced today that  Katie Couric will get a daytime, syndicated talk show on the network.

ABC announced the deal today, unveiling the plan which puts Katie in as host and producer.  Katie's former "Today" show EP Jeff Zucker -- will be the Executive Producer.

TMZ is reporting Katie will make $20 million, mostly for the talk show but there's a relatively small amount for contributing to various ABC news shows.

ABC will most likey give Katie the 3 PM time slot when the show debuts in September, 2012. That's the coveted slot Oprah owned for a quarter century.

Matt Lauer will NOT be part of the show.
