With a new logo, email interface and company acquisitions, Yahoo has been on a roll in its quest to revamp the site, and shows no plans of stopping.

On Yahoo's Tumblr, CEO Marissa Mayer announced Katie Couric will join the company as a Global Anchor "shooting features" for Yahoo's homepage.

Formerly a news anchor for CBS and a Today Show host, Couric is definitely a household name that Yahoo probably plans to capitalize on to get more users.

On top of this, the purple yodeler has poached several other notable journalists, and apparently has plenty more to reveal soon - possibly at the upcoming 2014 CES show where Mayer will be giving a keynote speech.
