Katie Couric is headed to Yahoo as global anchor in early 2014, Yahoo confirmed Monday.

There, she will host a newsmaker interview show that will air on Yahoo's home page, as well as help develop Yahoo News' coverage with a "growing team of global correspondents who will report on live world events, anchor groundbreaking interviews with major newsmakers and thought leaders, and much more," according to a statement from Yahoo.

In the meantime, Couric and ABC are still talking about whether or not to continue with her talk show, Katie, which airs on the ABC-owned stations and mostly on ABC affiliates across the country.

Sources close to Couric say the show will run through this season regardless of whether it returns for season three. ABC and Couric are discussing restructuring the show's costs, as well as allowing it to move into earlier time periods in markets where the afternoon time period may no longer be available.
