When Katie Couric's self-titled talk show premiered many of her interviews seemed soft. Looks like The Perkie One has learned her lesson, and is finally going after “big gets”.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Couric will follow-up her headline-grabbing exclusive with Manti Te’o by interviewing Sue Paterno, the widow of disgraced Penn State coach Joe Paterno. This will mark the first time Mrs. Paterno has spoken on the record since the Jerry Sandusky sex scandal broke.

Anderson Cooper on Lance Armstrong Doping Scandal: "He Was a Complete Jerk About This For Years and Years"By Jillian Bowe on January 16, 2013
Don’t expect Anderson Cooper and disgraced cyclist Lance Armstrong to go bike riding anytime soon. On Wednesday's episode of Anderson, Cooper and guest co-host Dari Alexander discussed Armstrong copping to using performance-enhancement drugs in an upcoming interview with Oprah Winfrey.
The Silver Fox remarked:

Even the guy from the anti-doping agency got anonymous email death threats; it's not known who it's from.
