Former First Daughter Joins “Today”

jenna.jpgIf you’ve been wondering what former President George W. Bush‘s daughters have been up to, look no further than morning TV.

Jenna Bush Hager will soon be starting a gig as a correspondent for NBC‘s “Today” show. Although the 27-year-old is currently a teacher in Baltimore, she will be working part time at her school while working part time out of NBC’s Washington, D.C. bureau to produce once monthly stories for the morning show.

Hager was sought out by “Today” executive producer Jim Bell, who told the Associated Press that she had a “natural presence” on air during previous “Today” show appearances.

In fact, during an appearance in April 2008 — the video’s below — she seems very comfortable being interviewed and being on camera. But will that translate into being a good reporter?

We’ll find out when Hager files her first report, which will most likely focus on education, next month.
