Around the time of Katie Couric’s departure from The Today Show, a disc jockey at NYC’s 92.3 FM spoke about the famous co-host, making repeated mention of Couric’s “fat arms.”
I’d imagine that as broadcast journalists, DJs would admire Couric’s assent to the pinnacle of her field. For the first time in American history, a woman is poised to become the solo anchor of a primetime news program, and we’re talking about her body, or rather, the one thing that’s (arguably) wrong with her body.
Maybe you don’t like her interviewing style. Maybe you disagree with her politics. Maybe you think she’s just not that entertaining. Feel free to comment on any of these. But, please, leave her arms alone.
