Sue Paterno to Speak to Katie Couric

Sue Paterno gave her first in-depth interview since the Sandusky scandal hit Penn State to ABC’s Katie Couric, who recently visited the widow of Joe Paterno in her State College home.

Details are mostly secret at this point, with Hollywood Reporter publishing the above photo of Couric and SuePa in her McKee Street home earlier today. The segment is scheduled to air on February 11 on Couric’s show Katie.

According to Hollywood Reporter, SuePa is scheduled to be in Couric’s New York studio on that day.

Sue Paterno has remained mostly quiet since her husband was fired from Penn State in November 2011, although she has appeared at multiple campus events in recent months.

SuePa has always been one of Penn State’s most beloved matriarchs and her support for the students of the institution has been unwavering, even after the harsh treatment her husband received from university leadership. It will be interesting to see what she says — or doesn’t say — in Couric’s interview next week.
