Former “Today” co-host Katie Couric is keeping a new man under wraps, says The Huffington Post.

“Katie told a friend she was dating again a couple of months ago but has not revealed many details—except that he is in finance and that she is very happy,” a source close to Couric told the online newspaper.

Although her mystery man has yet to be identified, the new couple was recently spotted out on the town in Couric’s Upper East Side neighborhood, talking and exchanging a kiss.

“This is a great time in Katie’s life,” said a longtime industry friend of Couric’s. “Early buzz on her talk show looks like it’s going to be a massive hit, plus, she’s getting great exclusives for ABC. She is enjoying spending time with her daughters, Ellie and Carrie…and now she has a handsome man in her life. Who could ask for anything more?”

Couric, 55, lost her husband Jay Monahan to colon cancer in 1998, and split with Brooks Perlin, her boyfriend of five years, last December.

Her upcoming daytime talk show “Katie” premiers in September on ABC.
