Couric's first job was as a desk assistant at ABC, where she worked under anchorman Sam Donaldson, among others.
Shortly thereafter, she began working at the Washington bureau of the fledgling Cable News Network (CNN).
In this role, she undertook traditional anchor responsibilities of reporting on live events and conducting interviews, while also hosting the series Katie Couric had two daughters with first husband Jay Monahan: Elinor Tully "Ellie" Monahan was born on July 23, 1991, and Caroline "Carrie" Couric Monahan was born on January 5, 1996.
While morning-show host may be considered one of the cushier jobs when it comes to a network news team, every shred of their journalistic experience—as well as every ounce of their composure, gravitas and adaptability—was called into play on that terrifying morning.
By the end of 2000, her campaign had raised more than million.
In 2000, Couric published a children's book, Couric debuted as the solo evening news anchor for CBS on September 5, 2006—the first evening newscast to be simulcast live on the internet and local radio stations.
That same year, however, Couric faced profound tragedy in her personal life: Monahan, then a legal analyst with NBC News, died in January following a six-month battle with colon cancer. After her husband's untimely death, Couric mounted an aggressive campaign to raise money for research and testing in order to fight colon cancer.
As part of her efforts, Couric masterminded a two-week TV series to raise awareness of the disease, even undergoing an on-air colonoscopy herself in order to impress upon viewers the importance of testing.
