Cody Gifford Reviewing Movies for ‘Today’

Cody Gifford, son of Kathie Lee Gifford, is “interning” at NBC’s “Today” show this summer while he’s home from college. He’ll be reviewing movies for his mother’s 4th hour.

Asked in a NBC Q&A what he could bring to the broadcast as a young critic, he explains: “I think that as you get older, you know, you kinda — no one’s fault — but you get a little out of touch with contemporary issues, films, and whatnot. Maybe not out of touch, you can be knowledgeable about it, but you’re not really — it’s not your generation anymore. And that’s no fault of anyone’s, but I think I can bring, maybe, a little more awareness and, kind of, a relevancy, that maybe isn’t there with older people.”

Classic.
