Katie Couric’s deal with ABC starts on August 1. Two days later, she will be on the network’s air as a guest co-host on ABC’s daytime talk show The View, ABC just announced. That will get Couric on daytime viewers’ radar right away, well ahead of the fall 2012 launch of her syndicated daytime talk show for ABC. In addition to prepping that, under her deal, Couric is slated to contribute to all ABC News programs, including newsmagazine 20/20, Good Morning America and World News with Diane Sawyer.
