The former "Today" show host and "CBS Evening News" anchor will be concentrating on production work for the time being. A representative for Couric said Friday she turned down an opportunity for a short-term contract extension at Oath.

Couric is working on a documentary with National Geographic, where she did a project on gender revolution recently. She's producing a scripted series for Netflix, hosts a podcast where she interviews figures in news and pop culture, and produces "Scraps," a cooking and travel series for the FYI network.

The 60-year-old Couric also hosts an online cooking series with her husband John Molner.
