The daughter of a former president of the United States is reportedly in the running for a talk show from NBCUniversal. The New York Post reports that Jenna Bush Hager is being eyed for a daytime panel show that might end up taking the place of “The Meredith Vieira Show.”
Hager, the daughter of George W. Bush, is already a part of the NBC family, working as a special correspondent to the network’s “Today” show and serving as a contributor to “NBC Nightly News.” She is also an editor-at-large for Southern Living magazine.
“Hager, 33, was spotted out in Los Angeles last week testing for the potential pilot, which we hear would include both male and female hosts,” the Post reports. “We hear that ‘The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air’ actress Tatyana Ali was also among those testing for a host seat.”
Hager began working on “Today” in 2009, and has filled in for a number of co-anchors in the 9 a.m. and 10 a.m. hours.
