We’re taking it all on and aim to be the source people can trust to help delineate fact from fiction.
SAN DIEGO (PRWEB) March 05, 2020
In PODCAST Magazine’s March issue, legendary journalist Katie Couric discusses her transition from broadcast journalist to digital media entrepreneur with the launch of her own media company, Katie Couric Media, and her popular podcast, “Next Question with Katie Couric” (iHeartRadio).
In the cover story, “Making Sense of a Chaotic, Complicated and Ever-Changing World,” written by editor-in-chief Steve Olsher, Couric shares personal insights into some of her biggest life and work challenges, as well as the purpose-driven intention fueling her media company, which “explores the people, movements and issues changing our lives and redefining our world.”
Through her podcast, which launched in September 2019, Couric continues to unpack today’s most complex and important topics with episodes exploring America’s staggering maternal mortality rate to the ABC’s of CBD. Couric interviews a diverse set of experts in her quest to distill the truth for her audiences.
Couric also interviews some of the biggest names in news and popular culture today, like Greta Gerwig, Ronan Farrow, Julie Andrews and Jennifer Garner, and recently launched a live version of “Next Question,” centering on conversations with some of the buzziest companies in business and entrepreneurship.
In the interview, Couric said of entrepreneurship in media, “To thrive in this business, one must have a certain ‘sixth sense.’ It’s imperative to know in your gut what your next best move is. And, you have to let empathy guide you when someone is talking about a deeply personal matter. We’re taking it all on and aim to be the source people can trust to help delineate fact from fiction.”
“Next Question with Katie Couric,” produced by iHeartRadio, can be heard on all major podcasting platforms.
