Katie Couric Works to Free Media Tycoon's Maserati From Snow
A photo has surfaced showing CBS News anchor Katie Couric working to free a Maserati owned by Barry Diller, chairman of IAC, the company that owns websites including Ask.com and The Daily Beast.
Diller's sports car had gotten stuck in the snow in Central Park as he was driving to work, Gawker.com said.
"She was on her way to work," the spokeswoman said. "It was definitely random."
Couric is the anchor and managing editor of the "CBS Evening News" and a correspondent with "60 Minutes." Her 2008 interviews with Republican vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin were among the most important pieces of coverage of the presidential election.
Unfortunately, the award-winning journalist's best efforts weren't enough to free Diller's Maserti from the snow.
In the end, Diller caught a ride to work with Couric. She arrived at work on time, the spokeswoman said.
It's "an only-in-New-York moment," the spokeswoman said.
