The news anchor married fiancee John in the Hampton’s this past weekend.
Congratulations are in order for news anchor Katie Couric who married fiancee John Molner in a intimate, romantic Hamptons ceremony over the weekend. The couple, who have been engaged for 10 months married in front of friends and family, including Couric's two daughters, Ellie and Carrie. Of course thanks to her lengthily broadcasting career, Katie’s one of the most famous women in America, but her new husband John may have to start getting used to the limelight. Come to think of it, what do we actually know about John Molner?
Katie Couric, now Mrs John Molner
He may have made headline news this weekend after marrying ‘America’s sweetheart’, but little is known about the new Mr Katie Couric. The 50 year financier may not be a household name like his wife, but that doesn’t mean he’s not also very successful in his own right. We can imagine that some men might have found themselves intimidated by a woman as successful as Couric, but for Molner it didn't seem to pose a problem. A high flyer in the financial world, Molner is currently head of mergers and acquisitions at Brown Brothers Harriman, a New York-based investment bank and securities firm. Yes it might not sound as glamorous as delivering the news to millions all over the world everyday, but Molner himself is actually quite a catch.
