Local artist Jared Mahone to play The Katie Couric show today at 3 p.m. on NBC4.

We've always known local singer-songwriter Jared Mahone is awesome, but now, Katie Couric knows too.

This afternoon The Katie Couric Show house band (joined by Mahone and band mate Matt Holley) will be performing some of Mahone original songs on the show.

If you remember, Mahone recently took the top prize at Verizon's Indie Icon Competition. Ohio against the world, indeed!

Tune in this afternoon (Nov.1) on NBC4 at 3 p.m.
