Southern Living magazine’s staff box is adding a familiar name --- former presidential daughter Jenna Bush Hager, notes Grumpy Editor.
While continuing as a correspondent for NBC’s “Today” show, the daughter of former President George W. Bush joins the magazine as an editor at large.
In a monthly column, Paper Napkin Interview, she will cover influential Southerners and noteworthy places in the region.
The addition of Bush Hager, 30, a Texan living in New York, is considered a move to attract some younger readers.
With almost 3 million in circulation, median age of the magazine’s readers is 51.2 years.
She mentions that she grew up reading Southern Living and that her mother had a subscription.
Grumpy Editor hastens to point out that one of the features in the monthly is the Grumpy Gardener (no relation) who, in his latest column, covers “Give a Grow Box This Christmas.”
