    Katie Couric may be able to afford a big lavish wedding, but when it comes to her upcoming nuptials to John Molner, the talk-show host is keeping it simple.

    "It will just be a small dinner in New York," she told the Hollywood Reporter.

    What's more, Couric noted that her fiancé is making most of the arrangements, saying, "Actually, he's the wedding planner!"

    Financier Molner proposed to Couric in September in East Hampton, N.Y., after nearly two years of dating. Couric was previously married to Jay Monahan, who died of colon cancer in 1998.

    Soon after getting engaged, 57-year-old Couric admitted she was a bit surprised when her 50-year-old beau popped the question.

    "We had been talking casually about the possibility of getting married," she told Gotham magazine. "We knew we were in a committed relationship, but we had not really discussed it in concrete terms. When John said he was open to it, I thought, 'Great,' but I also didn't want to push it in that direction if that wasn't where he was headed."

    Meanwhile, it was announced in December that Couric's daytime talk show, Katie, will come to an end in June 2014 after two seasons. But she won't be collecting any unemployment checks.

    The former CBS News anchor recently signed a deal with Yahoo to, according to the company's CEO Marissa Mayer, "lead a growing team of correspondents at Yahoo News who will cover the world's most interesting stories and newsmakers."
