Stepping into the newest phase of her career, Katie Couric is heading back to her roots – rejoining ABC for a news show that is still in development.

"I'm very happy to be returning to the network where I began my career as a desk assistant in 1979," Couric, 54, says in a statement.

"It is tremendously exciting to have the creative freedom to develop my own show ... and to contribute to such a vibrant, innovative news division."

Since leaving the anchor chair of the CBS Evening News last month after five years in the job, Couric, it was rumored, has been developing a daytime talk show.

And while the format of the new show has yet to be finalized, Couric is excited to get to work. Says the TV veteran: "I can't wait to be part of this incredibly talented, visionary team."
