What can Jenn Brown do for GNC? Give ESPN another reason for the supple reporter to supplement her income


How healthy is it for ESPN to approved an endorsement deal for pretend reporter Jenn Brown to work as a spokesperson for GNC nutritional products?

The company has apparently given her muscle to do so after setting down new guidelines for on-air personalities who have promotional deals with companies, particularity trying to avoid a conflict of interest if they provide goods and services to teams or athletes that are “regularly covered” by ESPN.

“Having been a student athlete throughout my life, participating as an honor student in diving, volleyball, basketball, softball and track and field in high school and as a NCAA softball player at the University of Florida, I know and understand the value of education, health and nutrition,” Brown said in a statement. “Being part of the GNC team, I am looking forward to continuing my efforts to inform, educate and inspire fellow fitness enthusiasts on living a healthy and balanced lifestyle.”

Maybe she can get some folks at ESPN deals on creatine next time she stops into the local mall? Or at least some FDA-approved diet pills?

The GNC press release (linked here) also refers to Brown as a “two-time Emmy Award winning sports journalists” who is an L.A.-based reporter. So maybe we’re thinking of someone else then.
