`Welcome aboard, Katie. Anchors aweigh!` Yahoo! Chief Executive Officer Marissa Mayerv said in a statement.

Today, I am incredibly excited to announce that Katie Couric is joining Yahoo! as our global anchor."

Katie Couric is the most annoying, cloying and overhyped anchor is the history of broadcast journalism. Couric has the gravitas of a buttermilk pancake that has been run over by a Mack truck.

The only thing Couric had going for her was her perky attitude, but when she turned thirty 26 years ago she lost her perkiness.

Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayerv in a stupefying and stunning display of solidarity and sisterhood has hired Couric as Yahoo global anchor. Anchors aweigh indeed, Couric is dead weight and she will drag Yahoo to the bottom.

Mayerv is putting symbolism ahead of good business sense, Lord only knows how many millions she wasted hiring Couric.

Couric has zero appeal for the young people, male and female, who glean their news from the Internet. Hiring Couric is the worst business decision of all time.
