Moneyism: Katie Couric, news anchor, becomes Katie Couric, cooking show host

On a blind date with private-equity executive John Molner in early 2012, her future husband ordered a soft-shell crab appetizer and pork belly entree. “I thought ‘wow, this guy eats with gusto,” recalls Yahoo’s global news anchor, 60. “That’s my kind of man.” (That night, Couric accidentally ordered a $500 bottle of wine because she was trying to impress her husband-to-be.)

Food, you see, is her thing — she admits she’s “always been slightly neurotic” about it — which may explain why the Yahoo YHOO, -0.27% anchor, who reportedly earns $10 million annually, is waiving her fee for “Full Plate with Katie and John,” a five-episode cooking series that debuts Sunday in collaboration with kitchenware retailer Sur La Table, her hubby and chef Joel Gamoran.
