Katie Couric is making news of her own on her new talk show.

Couric admitted Monday on "Katie" that she struggled with bulimia while a student at the University of Virginia, the New York Daily News reported.

“I wrestled with bulimia all through college and for two years after that," Couric said. "And I know this rigidity, this feeling that if you eat one thing that’s wrong, you’re full of self-loathing and then you punish yourself, whether it’s one cookie or a stick of gum that isn’t sugarless, that I would sometimes beat myself up for that."

ABC News reported Couric made the comments during an interview with singer Demi Lovato, who also battled eating disorders.
