Katie Couric is the featured guest, stopping by to preview the first day of her new syndicated talk show, KATIE with hosts Mario Batali, Michael Symon, Carla Hall, Clinton Kelly and Daphne Oz. KATIE will be the lead-out for GH in many markets. The show is syndicated but the majority of affiliates are ABC stations. KATIE's first episode will feature guests Jessica Simpson and Sheryl Crow.
