As the end to her ABC talk show Katie nears, former Today co-host Katie Couric is promoting the launch of her interview series World 3.0, in which the veteran journalist speaks to celebs and newsmakers.

This week’s episode features rapper Lupe Fiasco, who discusses the reaction among his business partners after he called U.S. President Barack Obama a “terrorist.”

Couric, who was the anchor of the CBS Evening News from 2006 to 2011, was hired last year to be “the face” of Yahoo News. She has been doing video interviews and appearing at events as the digital media company’s global news anchor since January.

All of Couric’s work for Yahoo News is produced by Yahoo Studios in New York. World 3.0, which launched last week, will stream weekly and be promoted across the Yahoo ecosystem: on the Yahoo homepage, across Yahoo’s magazines and verticals, and the News Digest and Yahoo apps. Couric and Yahoo are also pushing the show throughout social media.

Next week, Couric will be interviewing U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry.

Couric was hired last year to be “the face” of Yahoo News. She has been doing  video interviews and appearing at events as the digital media company’s global news anchor since January.
