New details emerge about what’s Katie’s next act could be once she leaves CBS.

One way or another, you’ll be seeing Katie Couric on an afternoon talk show — just as Oprah Winfrey bids adieu to network TV.

New reports from Nellie Andreeva at Deadline and from TMZ shed new light on where Katie’s headed. Sources tell Deadline that ABC is “finalizing” its offer to Katie, and TMZ says she would make $20 million per year.

At ABC, Katie would have the chance to do her talk-show but also be involved on the news side at the network.
