Katie Couric was allegedly paid more than $100,000 to appear in a 2015 Super Bowl ad — and she's not keeping a penny of the paycheck.
According to a new report, Katie, 58, donated all of the money she earned from her BMW i3 commercial to 15 organizations, including The Jay Monahan Center, Planned Parenthood, Michael J. Fox Foundation and Harlem Village Academies.
In the "Newfangled Idea" ad — which spoofs Katie's 1994 'Today Show' question, "Can you explain what the internet is?" — the star appears with Bryant Gumbel to discuss the technology behind BMW's new electric car.

Following the news of the mom-of-two's charitable donation, it was revealed that Katie is allegedly aiming to return to NBC after the network announced her former boss, Andrew Lack — who helped make her a star at 'Today' — is back in charge.

Though it is unclear what capacity the journalist would return to the network, the new announcement sparked speculation that Katie may replace Brian Williams on 'NBC Nightly News' or Savannah Guthrie on 'Today.'
She previously worked as a co-host on the popular daytime talk show from 1991 to 2006.
'Page Six' first reported this news.
