Katie Couric has her own YouTube channel - VIDEO

Katie CouricLately, the only Katie Couric most people have been seeing is the one that's depicted in the picture to the right: serious, sober, possessing whatever gravitas she can muster in her role as anchor of the CBS Evening News. But where can you see the goofy Katie, the one that people came to know -- and some got sick of -- for fifteen years on the Today show?

Why, on YouTube, of course! In fact, Katie has her very own page on the leading video sharing site, where she posts extended Evening News interviews and behind-the-scene footage. The behind-the-scenes stuff is where you see Katie at her most impish, doing things like snapping Larry King's suspenders as he leads her to the set of his show, singing with Bette Midler, and meeting with mommy bloggers in her office (check out the huge Warhol-esque portrait of herself she has hanging near her desk!).

The LA Times explains that Couric started filming and posting the videos in response to the clips of her that Harry Shearer posted on his My Damn Channel website; she even says "Harry Shearer, I'm gonna get you" on her introductory video.

The videos aren't bad, though it's alarming how big of a "posse" Katie drags around with her everywhere. But at least she shows some warmth, as the video below shows. Before and after she was on Larry King Live, she chats up some paparazzi on the way in and a family on the way out, all the time plugging the YouTube channel. So, even if she's playing it up for her YT camera, it still shows a side of her we haven't seen in almost two years.

I wonder if she's ever had a single authentic moment in her entire life.
