Jenna Lee, anchor of Happening Now, lightened up the news load by giving her two cents on the NBC late night lineup changes. Later, she weighed in on Brian’s great debate on whether or not NCAA basketball players should get paid. Lee explained that although her father was in the NFL, her brother, who played college football, has not been able to make any NFL team.
She said that more options are needed for individuals such as her brother who want to continue to play their sport of choice after college but can’t make it into the pros. “I wish he would have the opportunity,” Lee said, “[My brother] works really hard and is a good kid… He has all the things in place, but sometimes luck’s not necessarily in your favor, and you see that and it’s tough.”
