'Today' at UVA

NBC “Today” show host Katie Couric visited the Grounds April 12 to shoot a feature for her morning television news program. Here, she and U.Va. President John T. Casteen III share a light moment. Before their meeting, she interviewed one of her former history professors, Joe Kett, Dean of African-American Affairs Rick Turner, and fourth-year student Don Koons, who now lives in her old Lawn room, No. 26. In between takes, Couric graciously signed autographs, posed for snapshots and talked with students who gathered to watch her and her crew in action.

A 1979 U.Va. honors graduate, Couric majored in American Studies and was associate editor of the Cavalier Daily. Like Koons, she was also head resident adviser when she lived on the Lawn.

Couric and Today co-hosts Matt Lauer, Ann Curry and Al Roker are all returning to their alma maters this month to produce segments that will air on “Today” the week of May 21, when most college graduation ceremonies take place nationwide.
