Jenna Bush Joins Southern Living as Editor

Jenna Bush Hager, the Today show correspondent and daughter of George W. Bush, is joining Southern Living as an editor-at-large. The New York Times reports that she will pen articles about how to deal with being a daughter of one of the worst presidents of all time. Kidding!

Bush Hager is going to write a monthly column for Southern Living and contribute to the magazine’s The Daily South blog. Lindsay Bierman, Southern Living’s editor-in-chief, said he brought Bush Hager aboard because of her passion for the South.

“I did get the sense that her heart is still very much in the South,” Bierman told the Times. “I felt her passion for the South was going to translate into what she would do for Southern Living.”
