During the Yahoo interview, Couric and Abramson "will discuss life at The New York Times, challenges facing women in the workplace and the changing media landscape," a Yahoo spokesperson told The Hollywood Reporter.
Couric's interview is currently scheduled to run on the Yahoo homepage on Thursday afternoon, the spokesperson added.
The interviews will not be Abramson's first public comments since she was ousted from the Times. Just days after the newspaper abruptly announced she would be stepping down, Abramson delivered the commencement address at Wake Forest University. On Tuesday, she also participated in a radio interview and Cosmopolitan magazine's website posted an interview it conducted with Abramson for an upcoming issue.
Starting in the fall, she will teach a narrative nonfiction course to undergraduates at Harvard.
