INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Katie Couric feels bad for Ann Curry.
The former co-host of NBC's "Today" show was in Indianapolis on Tuesday to take a drive around the Indianapolis Motor Speedway with Danica Patrick. The feature will air sometime after Couric's syndicated talk show, called "Katie," debuts in September.
When Couric left "Today" to go to CBS, Curry was passed over for the top job for Meredith Vieira. And Curry was recently replaced as a co-host by Savannah Guthrie after about a year on the job.
Couric said: "I felt bad for Ann and I felt bad for the whole team on the show. Transitions like that are really tough. But I know she'll go on and do great things."
