It may be the best unpaid summer internship ever found through nepotism, and it’s going to Kathie Lee Gifford’s son, Cody, reports the New York Post.
The 20-year-old has secured a summer job reviewing movies on-air during the "Today" show’s fourth hour, which happens to the 10 a.m. segment co-hosted by his mother.
"I love nepotism," exclaimed Kathie Lee Gifford, before she introduced Cody on the program, the article says. "Is he getting an opportunity here? Yeah, but so be it. We like him and he’s a smart kid and a good kid," said "Today" show executive producer Jim Bell.
Cody Gifford, who is studying film at University of Southern California, said his age helps him with his reviews, the report adds. "As you get older you get a little out of touch with contemporary films — maybe not out of touch, you can be knowledgeable, but it’s not your generation anymore," he says.
