Journalist Katie Couric will join the ABC News team and produce a new nationally-syndicated talk show.

Couric will host and produce her own nationally-syndicated series starting September 2012. That yet-to-be-named series will reunite her with Today show colleague Jeff Zucker, executive producer of the new venture. It will air on all eight of the ABC Owned TV stations, including weekdays on ABC 7 Chicago at 3 p.m. CST.

Couric will begin appearing on ABC News this summer.
