It’s official. Katie Couric will be heading to the daytime talk circle with her new show simply titled Katie ready to air on September 10. The show hasn’t even started and already, there are a slew of guests Couric is ready to interview. So, who will be appearing on Katie’s inaugural show? How about the show’s theme song singer!

That’s right, the show’s theme song is song and performed by a pretty famous face- Sheryl Crow to be exact and she will be one of Katie’s first guests. The singer will talk about her recent battle with health issues as well as her family. And who will be joining Sheryl? Another singer who also has a family to talk about.

Pop star and fashion designer Jessica Simpson will also sit down with Katie for her first post-birth television appearance. She talks about balancing career and motherhood- a task that I’m sure is not a simple one. Simpson also chats to Couric about the challenges of losing the baby weight after giving birth.

For Katie’s second show, Couric will have a full hour to chat with Aimee Copeland whom if you remember, battled a rare form of flesh eating bacteria. In my opinion, I’m not too sure how they are going to milk a full hour episode out of that one story, but good on them. The girl power continues with a list of other scheduled guests to sit alongside Katie on the show. They include:

  • Barbara Streisand
  • Jennifer Lopez
  • Heidi Klum
  • Chelsea Handler
  • E L James (author of 50 Shades of Grey)
  • Wendy Williams
  • Demi Lovato

Looks like this show is definitely about women, for women. I wonder who Katie’s first male guest will be. Any suggestions? Sound off with your thoughts below.
