Katie's Take premieres May 1 and comes from her employers at ABC News and Yahoo, with a dedicated page living on the latter's website. 

"Today there is so much information available to us that it can be overwhelming to sift through it all," Couric said. "I am happy to have found a place in the digital world where I can cut through fads and trends. I want to introduce people to serious experts who can hopefully help provide real solutions."

Each episode will feature interviews with experts and Couric's personal perspective on the topics.

Poland Spring Natural Spring Water has signed on as the exclusive sponsor of the launch.
