(WVVA) - Two new programs with familiar faces are making their debut on WVVA Monday.

At 11 a.m., Emmy-award winning 'Survivor' host Jeff Probst enters the daytime talk realm with 'The Jeff Probst Show.'

The new show promises provocative conversation, compelling real life drama, unexpected adventures, candid celebrity revelations and audience participation.

"I've long been a believer in the philosophy that says -- 'the adventure you're ready for is the one you get,' Probst said.

"I'm excited at the opportunity to bring that same spirit of adventure into the lives of our viewers. SAY YES and be a part of launching this show!"

At 2 p.m., former host of NBC's 'Today,' Katie Couric launches her own show, 'Katie.'

'Katie' will be timely and topical – blending entertainment, information and the stories of each day in a way that is engaging and compelling. Katie will tackle a wide range of issues – some of them important, some of them just plain fun. She is excited to interact with her audience, to shed some light on the things that matter most to them, and hopefully provide useful advice and solutions. All while having some fun along the way.

Katie is joining forces with former 'Today' show Executive Producer Jeff Zucker, reuniting one of television's most successful partnerships in a new venture, CZ Productions LLC. Jeff will serve as the show's executive producer, returning to his producing roots and tapping into his vast live television experience.
