The network and Couric said they “mutually agreed” there will not be a third season of the show, which is called “Katie.” Production will continue through June, they said.

Couric, who has hosted high-profile programs on all three major U.S. television networks, is joining Internet company Yahoo Inc next year as a global anchor who will head a team of correspondents and help shape news coverage.

Previously, Couric was the popular co-anchor of NBC’s morning program, “Today.” She left Comcast-owned NBC for CBS News in 2006 to become the first female to host the nightly news on her own.
