    Shawn Johnson to be NBC Olympics Correspondent

    "Johnson was selected as the morning show's first ever Today.com special correspondent for the 2012 London Olympic games. She will engage with "Today's" online audience by providing behind-the-scenes coverage through Twitter, Instagram, and other social media. Johnson will bring the athlete's perspective to Today.com's reporting, and contribute to the website's London blog."

    This would be a pretty fun gig and she can still be involved with the Olympics. Good for her!

    She's probably hoping the added exposure will lead to another Ortega endorsement deal.

    I still think she should have won the award for best sports moment in Iowa's history.

    Can you believe her manager (maybe mom?) would ever let her do that in the first place? Just wow.

    No offense to Shawn Johnson, but her coverage annoys me. I don't even know why, and I really cant explain it.

    Re: Shawn Johnson to be NBC Olympics Correspondent

    She's pretty and all, but from what I've heard about her (and gathered by watching her body language and etc.) she's a *****.

    That said, it's always cool to see famous Iowans getting publicity, exposure, and etc. So I'm happy for her and I hope she does a good job.

    Re: Shawn Johnson to be NBC Olympics Correspondent

    Central Iowans who grow up Hawkeye fans deserve a special ring of Hades...

    Not to say anything too terrible about the U o Iowa, but I'm sure they feel the same way about ISU fans in the eastern part of the state. Transplants I can understand, but a native like her (my aunt was one of her middle school teachers in Johnson) doesn't make any sense.
