"Hey, I'm part of the Geritol generation now," Katie Couric, 55, says with a laugh. "I understand the issues Americans my age and up are facing every day." Boy, does she ever. Listen to Couric rattle through topics she'll be covering on her new syndicated daytime talk show, Katie, premiering Sept. 10: Staying healthy at any age, empty-nest syndrome, dating after 50 ("which I'm doing"), prescription drug abuse among the elderly, smarter retirement finances, menopause ("Hello! I'm going through it") and why everybody is getting a knee replacement. "One of my big concerns about aging is that we're too obsessed with staying young," she says.
