By Annie Doge, Thu, June 21, 2018

Update 6/21/18: The Post now reports that Couric’s apartment closed for $7,780,000, according to property records. The buyers are Dana Wallach Jones, general counsel for the Guggenheim Museum, and Michael Jones, the CFO of Lambert Television. The couple is active on the board of the American Museum of Natural History, which is just across the park from their new digs. 

Twenty years ago, celebrated news anchor Katie Couric bought a classic, five-bedroom co-op at 1155 Park Avenue. But after remarrying in 2014 to financier John Molner in 2014, the couple upgraded to a $12 million, full-floor apartment at the Peter Pennover-designed 151 East 78th Street. Couric first listed her longtime Upper East Side home this past October for $8.25 million; she then dropped the price to $7,995,000 at the end of January, and now the Post reports that the home has gone into contract.
