Katie Couric is making history this week.

The veteran journalist will make her debut on Monday as the first female guest host of Jeopardy!. Couric is the latest person to fill in at the podium following longtime host Alex Trebek's death in November.

On Sunday, the competition show released the first images of Couric as host, which showed her at the podium and reviewing files behind the scenes. She will appear in the nightly episodes from March 8 through 19.

"New episodes of Jeopardy! continue this week with guest host #KatieCouric!" the caption said.

Couric also posted on Instagram on Sunday, sharing a Jeopardy! clue about her upcoming appearance.

"In 2021, this groundbreaking journalist & co-founder of Stand Up to Cancer Became the First Woman to Guest host 'Jeopardy!'" the clue read, with the answer "Who is Katie Couric?" below.

"This happened," she captioned the screenshot, adding the hashtags #whoiskatiecouric, #jeopardy and #seeyoutomorrownight.

Couric's hosting gig will also include a charity aspect - a donation equal to the contestants' cumulative winnings will go to Stand Up To Cancer, an organization she co-founded in 2008 that "funds and develops the newest and most promising cancer treatments to help patients today," according to its website.

The first guest host to take over after Trebek's final episode aired in December was Jeopardy! champion Ken Jennings, followed by executive producer Mike Richards.

In addition to Couric, Anderson Cooper, Savannah Guthrie, Dr. Mehmet Oz, Dr. Sanjay Gupta, Katie Couric, Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers, actress Mayim Bialik and journalist Bill Whitaker have all been tapped to host the quiz show.

"Alex was a legend, revered by all of us," Richards said in a January statement announcing some of the guest hosts. "I want to thank our guest hosts, who will not only help all of us celebrate his great legacy, but also bring their own touch to the show."
