NEW YORK, N.Y. - Katie Couric is calling it quits on her weekday syndicated talk show as she heads to Yahoo.

Couric and producer The Walt Disney Co. said Thursday the "Katie" show will wrap after this season. They say shuttering the show after its second season was a mutual decision.

"Katie" will continue to air through next summer.

Couric announced last month she's joining Yahoo to anchor an expansion of its video news initiative. She'll serve as the Sunnyvale, Calif.-based company's global anchor.

She announced at the time she was leaving ABC News, which she joined in 2011.
