ayla brown getty 'American Idol': Ayla Brown gets 'Early Show' gig    the next Katie Couric?Ayla Brown, semi-finalist from “American Idol” and daughter of the newly-elected Republican Senator from Massachusetts Scott Brown, has landed herself a TV gig just weeks before she graduates from Boston College.

The Associated Press is reporting that Brown will be a producer, focusing on producing pieces for a youth audience. The show became interested in her after she appeared on “The Early Show” back in January. Executive Producer David Friedman says, “You can’t create the next Katie Couric, you just have to find the talent that you think can develop into something.”

Interesting that he cites Katie Couric, the long-time “Today” host. We know she’s not on the CBS Evening News, but her morning show roots were at the Peacock and not the Eye. Perhaps Friedman should’ve said the next Julie Chen?

Ayla will be following in her mother Gail Huff’s television footsteps, as Gail is currently a reporter for Boston’s ABC affiliate. Maybe next Ayla will follow in her father’s foosteps and pose nude in a magazine run for Congress.
