In an interview with Howard Stern on SiriusXM Satellite Radio Tuesday, Couric and Stern chatted about her former co-host Matt Lauer -- and the crush she nursed on him back when he had more hair -- and "low-level" discussions about a possible return to the show.
"There were some cautious overtures to me to possibly come back to the 'Today' show, but then they sort of evaporated," she said. "For me, ['Today'] was the best job."
Couric was at the desk of "Today" from 1991 to 2006. She has been the host of the talk show "Katie" on ABC since 2012.
