Katie Couric has a dream man.

"My fantasy husband is John Grisham, even though he's been taken for many years," Couric, speaking about the best-selling author of legal thrillers, tells September's Southern Living magazine (on sale Friday). "He's Southern. He's a lawyer. He's a great writer."

Just don't look for this crush to become anything real. While the Virginia-born Couric, 55, admits she's "very attracted to Southerners and men bring out my Southern charm," the TV host has been dating New York financier John Molner, 49, since April.

In the interview, Couric also talks about her new daytime talk show, Katie, set to premiere on ABC Sept. 10.

"I hope my new show will be the go-to place for a smart, compelling conversation about the people, events, and issues affecting us today," she says.
