Katie Couric has been spotted dining out in New York shortly after revealing that she was diagnosed with breast cancer in June. 

Couric and her husband were out on the town in Midtown Manhattan on Wednesday night, and the former NBC host put on a brave face after sharing her diagnosis in a personal essay.

Husband John Molner was at her side in support, holding Couric's hand as they walked down 54th Street amid the thronging crowds of the Theater District.

Couric had a smile on her face as she was recognized by fans, and wore a yellow coat over a black top and loose pinstriped pants. 

Just hours earlier, Couric, who memorably was tested for colon cancer on the Today show in 2000, announced her diagnosis in an essay on her website, saying she hoped it would encourage other women to be tested.

Couric, 65, was diagnosed in June and wrote that she had her final radiation treatment on Tuesday.

'My left breast does feel like I've been sunbathing topless, but other than that, I've felt fine,' she wrote.

Couric's first husband, Jay Monahan, died of colon cancer in 1998 at age 41 and her sister Emily was 54 when she died of pancreatic cancer in 2001. 

Given her family history, Couric wrote, 'why would I be spared? My reaction went from `why me?´ to `why not me?´'

The former host of Today and the CBS Evening News said she recorded her mammogram and breast biopsy with the intention of sharing it with followers, but her doctor asked her to turn off the cameras when she told her that a biopsy was necessary.

She opened up about her terror at hearing her diagnosis, while detailing the heartbreaking moment she told her children, Ellie, 31, and Caroline, 26, that she had cancer. 

'Finally, four days after I was diagnosed, I FaceTimed each of them,' she said. 'I tried to be as reassuring as Dr. Newman. Their faces froze in disbelief. Then shock. Then they began to cry.'

She added: 'They'd already lost one parent [Couric's first husband Jay]. The idea of losing another was unfathomable.'

Couric wrote that her diagnosis came on June 21 - her eighth wedding anniversary with second husband John - after she underwent a routine mammogram that raised concerns with her doctor. 

According to the former NBC host, her doctor urged her to have a biopsy to 'check out' something that had come up during her screening, with the medical professional noting that 'it could be scar tissue' but that she would 'feel more comfortable' doing further tests. 

'Ugh. I wasn't super stoked about having a needle penetrate my breast to extract several tissue samples, but I was grateful she was being so thorough,' Couric wrote. 

'I left with gauze in my bra and the promise she would be in touch.'

The following day, Couric received a text from her doctor asking her to call the office urgently. She was then delivered the heartwrenching news about her diagnosis.
