Will Katie Couric Kill ‘General Hospital’?

With her exit at ‘CBS Evening News’ imminent, it looks like Katie Couric may be eyeing a position at rival network ABC.

Sources tell TMZ that Couric is considering a $20 million dollar deal with the network, with plans to launch a syndicated talk show in Sept. 2012. In addition to a talk show, Couric would reportedly do specials for ABC News, ’20/20′ and “a significant amount of fill-in work, including anchoring.” (Somewhere, Diane Sawyer is freaking out.)

As for when Couric’s talk show would air, sources say Couric could take the time slot currently occupied by ‘General Hospital,’ which would bring an end to ABC’s last-standing soap opera. (Last month, ABC announced it will be canceling ‘All My Children’ and ‘One Life to Live’ in Sept. 2011 and Jan. 2012, respectively.)

Couric – who last week confirmed she is leaving ‘CBS Evening News’ – will be replaced by ’60 Minutes’ anchor Scott Pelley beginning June 6.
