“Jeopardy!” Guest Host Katie Couric Says She’s Delivered Memoir to Publisher: “I hope you f-ing like it”


Katie Couric has turned in her memoir to publisher Little Brown. She announced the moment on Twitter in the video below. She says it’s very “emotional” and adds “I hope you fucking like it.”

Couric is current guest host of “Jeopardy!” and doing a great job, I think. It’s tough to be the first woman host, but Katie always blazes trails.

Her memoir, I hope, will really get into Matt Lauer, Tom Brokaw, her time at CBS hosting the Evening News, all of it. She better not leave anything out. Of course, there will be a lot about losing her sister and husband each to cancer. And starting the whole StandUp4Cancer charity and awareness of colon cancer.

If she just turned the book in, we’ll see it a year from now.
