Is katie couric still dating brooks perlin
Still, Couric recalls the scalding judgment of the New York Times media columnist "who basically said now that a woman has the job, it's obviously not as important." Of course, in recent years, the ratings of everybody's evening-news broadcasts have been melting like the polar ice caps.When Couric made her historic 2006 debut on CBS, the former Today-show star found herself hammered thin by critics who hated the experimental evening-news rethink.“They looked good together and other guests remarked that he seemed a more age-appropriate match.”The “age-appropriate” comment is in reference to Couric’s most recent long-term relationship, with Brooks Perlin, a former hedge fund manager and current CFO of a green construction materials firm who is 17 years her junior.
"I made it a priority, and I pursued it with some purpose."Looks like that technique worked out pretty well!
Couric insists she isn't taking their impending face-off too seriously.
"I don't know whether it's that I've gotten older or more mature, but some of the brouhaha just seems so silly to me."Couric will always have the distinction of being the first female solo anchor in the history of network news.
Of course, network news is by definition stories relayed via visuals, and the portraits on the walls of Couric's office of trailblazing American women — Sally Ride, first in space; Wilma Rudolph, first to collect three Olympic golds in a single Games; Amelia Earhart, first to fly solo across the Atlantic — tell a story, too, elevating her own famous profile to a select pantheon.
Today, three weeks shy of 53, Couric looks tomboy terrific, that barely-made-up face betraying zero surgical workmanship, the fabled legs making those giant strides for women in black leather riding boots.
