FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

January 28, 2016

Every February marks the fun and youthful nationally recognized, Spunky Old Broad’s Month! Dr. Gayle Carson, founder of the SOB Clubs and original Spunky Old Broad, announces an honorary Spunky Old Broad each year that personifies youthful grace while pushing the envelope and creating positive change in the arts & entertainment world, media & broadcasting, or government & philanthropic arenas.

Dr. Gayle proudly announces her special 2016 Spunky Old Broad for the Year:

Katie Couric

Ever youthful, the 59 year old newscaster, cancer champion, talk show host, journalist and author stands for everything the S.O.B. movement is about. She is an innovative, bright, creative, passionate, & articulate woman- who has been a television host on the Big Three TV networks and currently serves as Yahoo! Global News anchor. After her husband’s passing in 1998 from a brave battle with colon cancer, Katie dedicated her life to keep the memory of her husband’s life alive through her tireless support for cancer research.

As a 3 time cancer survivor, Dr. Gayle Carson understands fighting the cancer battle is never over until all cancers are wiped clean from this earth. Ms. Couric, you are an inspiration and we applaud your efforts. We know you will continue to have the spunk you need to keep the open and brave conversations going to eradicate cancer.
