Katie Couric: ‘Some said I lacked ‘gravitas,’ which I’ve since decided is Latin for ‘testicles.”

As TVNewser noted recently, this past weekend was a big one for college graduations, and with it, commencement speeches. At the University of Virginia, former NBC News and CBS news anchor Katie Couric was the speaker.

The Daily Progress has details about Couric’s visit, including a quip she made about the way she left the “CBS Evening News.”

“Some said I lacked ‘gravitas,’ which I’ve since decided is Latin for ‘testicles,’” she said.

Couric is currently working on her eponymous upcoming daytime talk show “Katie,” which launches on ABC O&Os and other stations in the Fall.
