Since hardly a day goes by here that we don't talk about jounalism and network and cable TV news, I would be remiss if I didn't open the floor for discussion of Jenna Bush being named a contributing correspondent to NBC's "Today" show.

It has been been announced that she will be reporting on education, but her duties will range beyond that beat as well. As an NBC News spokeswoman said in an answer to an email from me Monday morning, "She will be reporting on education nationally, but she'll also be covering other subjects -- humanitarian reporting, women and children's issues, and features and profiles."

This is a part-time arrangement with no regular schedule of when her reports will run. According to NBC News, she will contrinue her job in the Baltimore City School system as a reading resources teacher. She will work for NBC News out of its Washington bureau.

Here's a link that provides more particulars of her new position at NBC News.

What do you think about this 27-year-old teacher joining NBC News?

I am going to hold my thoughts on this for now. I really am interested in seeing what news-savvy readers of this blog think.
