Yesterday, Katie Couric got a little testy when Barbara Walters pushed her to reveal what she’ll be doing after she leaves the CBS Evening News. But Couric was a lot more relaxed discussing the subject today on Today — maybe because this time, her interviewer was old pal and former colleague Matt Lauer. Even so, she didn’t reveal much about what’s next, saying only that she’s “really excited about the future” and is “in the middle of figuring it out.” Couric did, however, reveal that she’d love to have a smart, syndicated show in which she covers “a whole host of subjects” like medicine and health, controversial social issues, and politics. Hmm — possibly alongside old pal and former colleague Lauer?

Watch Couric’s appearance at her old stomping grounds below.
