Katie Couric is set to interview former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg for Yahoo News on Friday, March 14.
The Hollywood Reporter reports that on Monday, March 10, Couric will ask viewers to present questions, videos and photos to Bloomberg through her Tumblr page. Couric's interview with Bloomberg on Friday will be her second interview since joining Yahoo News. Her first interview was with former defense secretary Robert Gates, who was promoting his book Duty.
This will mark Bloomberg's first interview since he was chosen as the United Nations special envoy for cities and climate change. Couric plans to use Tumblr as a element to interview guests with Yahoo News.
Couric is currently hosting her ABC daytime talk show, Katie, which will finish its run during the summer after two seasons.
The Wrap tells how Couric joined Yahoo as its new global anchor last November. At the time of her hiring, Couric expressed her excitement about joining forces with Yahoo.
“It's very exciting to be a part of a leading company at the intersection of content and technology," she said.
