Katie Couric: Sarah Palin Has An ‘Open Invitation’ To Appear On My Talk Show

Former CBS and NBC News anchor Katie Couric has extended an “open invitation” to Fox News contributor ad former Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin to appear on her upcoming daytime talk show.

The Orlando Sentinel‘s Hal Boedeker caught up with Couric as she made some publicity rounds in the Florida city:

“She has an open invitation to come talk to me,” Couric said during a stop Monday in Orlando. “I’m not sure she’d be interested, but she’d certainly be welcome. She’s a fascinating figure not only on the political scene but in popular culture.”

It was Couric’s interview of Palin–featuring the new infamous “What newspapers do you read?” question–that made international news during the 2008 Presidential campaign.

Since that time there has been no love lost between Couric and Palin. When Couric guest-anchored “Good Morning America” a few weeks ago, Palin guest-hosted on rival “Today.”
