Local artist Jared Mahone to perform on Katie Couric Show

Abernathy Miller, Columbus Alive

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

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.
