Katie Couric made her debut Monday as Yahoo!'s global anchor, interviewing Robert Gates the day before publication of his memoir, Duty. Couric traveled to Iraq and Afghanistan with Gates for CBS' 60 Minutes when he was defense secretary.

Couric will also continue to host her syndicated daytime show, Katie, which will end after its second season.

Yahoo! said Couric's responsibilities as global anchor will include "groundbreaking interviews" to be featured on the website's homepage, while Couric said that what most excites her about the new venture is that "there are no rules right now." The Gates interview gives viewers a first look into what Couric's online journalism career will look like.
