Katie Couric is still "Katie"--what's the big deal? I remember when the network tried introducing her as "Katherine" to make her sound more professional I suppose, but that went over like a lead balloon, so they went back to calling her "Katie." :D

Regarding Katie as opposed to Kate or Katherine (Kathleen) whatever. It's just a matter of opinion.
Personally, I don't like a childish name like Katie or even Timmy. To me it equates with calling someone "Bunny or Pookie".
As far as Katie Couric goes......well doesn't the name fit? Just my opinion....can't stand her.
