Short Hairstyle Icon Katie Couric

Short hairstye icon and famous TV journalist Katie Couric was quoted in Life & Style Magazine in the November 27th, 2006 issue as saying "lets face it, I'm not Pamela Anderson.  I'm not so attractive it gets in the way of being taken seriously.  But I do what I can with what I've got."

Indeed, no one would ever confuse the mostly short hairstyle coiffed blonde with the blonde Pamela.  Does Katie wear her hair short because of her desired to be taken seriously?  It's possible but will we ever know for sure?

Katie did cause quite a controversy in April of 2009 when she unveiled a short hairstyle that was a much shorter chop then her normal chin length bob short hairstyles.

Indeed, critics felt Katie went with the severe short hairstyle to help draw attention to her sagging news show.  Did it help?  Maybe, Katie is still in the anchor chair as we approach 2010.

More About Katie Couric

Katie (Katherine Anne Couric) who was born January 7, 1957 became almost as well-known for her range of chic and edgy short hairstyles as she did for her work as co-host of NBC's Today.

In 2006, she made a highly publicized move from NBC to CBS, and on September 5, 2006 she became the first solo female anchor of the weekday evening news on one of the three traditional U.S. broadcast networks.

Katie has taken her short hairstyle variations from super short to chin length and longer as her career has ebbed and flowed.

The widowed mother currently serves as the anchor and managing editor of the CBS Evening News, host of's weekly chat show @katiecouric and part-time contributor to 60 Minutes as well as anchor for prime time news specials for CBS News.

The short hairstyled journalistic recently appeared on Ellen Degeneres for a friendly chat.  Katie and Ellen were in perfect sync since both famous blondes are currently wearing super short hairstyles.

Do you love Katie's super short hairstyle or prefer her with a longer chin length bob hairstyle?  Do you think going shorter helped or hurt her ratings and reputation as a serious news anchor?
