It is easier to spread rumours than offer a helping hand. Whilst Marissa Mayer is under fire, which many see as one of the final moments for Mayer, Katie Couric has held out her hands to overcome the current situation at Yahoo.
In an interview Katie mentioned that she thinks every move of Mayer is dissected and she seems to just forge ahead and focus on what she’s doing; moreover, Katie mentioned that it is a valuable lesson for everyone, and also added that she has certain qualities that Mayer does not, and vice versa, like Marissa wouldn’t necessarily know how to do a great piece on the tiny house movement.
It is a challenging task for everyone who is in the major position in a competitive organization. Particularly, Katie said that “when you are a high-profile woman, I think that it can sometimes be uber-challenging, and I think she is putting her head down and trying to do the work, and I know it must be challenging at a time for her. She is certainly a brilliant engineer and I admire her fortitude and she understands many aspects of this whole industry that I don’t understand, I think she appreciates the things that I can do that she doesn’t necessarily understand and we each appreciate each other skills set.”
Additionally, in 2013, Katie was signed at Yahoo for a $6 million contract as a Global news anchor, after that she renewed her contract at Yahoo for $10 million a year. During her career, she had interviews with world famous peoples like Star Wars actor John Boyega, Ellen Pao, and Dr. Ben Carson.
