Start spreading the news! Newscast veteran Katie Couric gets engaged to her longtime boyfriend, John Molner on a beach in East Hampton, New York. According to the Huffington Post, John Molner proposed to Katie Couric over Labor Day weekend with an amazing diamond ring right as the sun was setting – could there be a more perfect set up for this happy couple? We don’t think so!
After Katie Couric’s first husband died of colon cancer in 1998, she was left a widow but was always open to remarry. Over the years, Katie Couric had had various boyfriends but never thought of them as being “the one” – says People. Then in early 2012, Katie Couric and John Molner made their relationship public and everyone was thrilled! Once the wedding bells ring Molner will become step-father to Katie Couric’s two daughters, Ellie, 21, and Carrie, 17.
Katie Couric is such a loving and charitable person. With her amazing spirit, Katie Couric took part of the National Breast Cancer Awareness month and broadcasted her own mammogram on the Today show in the hopes of recreating the “Couric Effect” around the issue of breast cancer! If she can do it, so can you! She has also been doing voiceovers for cancer campaigns – from pancreatic cancer, to myeloma research foundations, Katie Couric was there with a smile on her face ready to battle the cancer for everyone. This popular newscaster has helped raise awareness all over the country and who could possibly be better for her than the one who loves her most? John Molner!
John Molner gave Katie Couric the perfect end to her summer with his proposal – he was very successful with her astounding, “Yes!” but did you know that he’s also successful in his own right?? He’s an executive at the Chicago-based investment firm, Brown Brothers Harriman and Co. according to E Online where he is the head of Merges and Acquisitions. This graduate with honors from both Trinity College and the University of Chicago Booth School of Business is six years younger than Katie Couric. This lovebird always accompanies his girl to all sorts of events such as basketball and galas. What a charmer!
This flawless couple will tie the knot on a day that has not yet been released but we will keep you updated; it will be a wonderful wedding and a new beautiful start for this successful power couple. Congratulations to both Katie Couric and John Molner on their lovely engagement!
