EAST HAMPTON, N.Y. (AP) – Katie Couric has married a New York financier in a small ceremony at her East Hampton home.

People magazine reports the former “Today” host and John Molner took the vows on Saturday in front of 50 guests.

The 51-year-old Molner is a partner at investment firm Brown Brothers Harriman overseeing mergers and acquisitions for the firm’s corporate clients.
