KATIE COURIC celebrated Labor Day weekend by getting engaged to her boyfriend of nearly two years, banker JOHN MOLNER, 50.

Molner popped the question at sunset on the beach in East Hampton, N.Y., Couric's rep confirmed Tuesday.

Couric has been a widow since her husband JAY MONAHAN died from colon cancer in 1998. The 56-year-old talk show host has two daughters from that marriage, Ellie, 21, and Carrie, 17.
