For all those naysayers who were admonishing Brent Musburger for publicly fawning over Alabama QB A.J. McCarron’s attractive girlfriend Katherine Webb during the BCS National Championship Game, be prepared to eat some crow, as Webb announced via Twitter that she has been tabbed by the entertainment news program Inside Edition to cover Super Bowl XLVII this coming February 3. I’m positive this opportunity wouldn’t have presented itself to Webb had Musburger not gone gaga over her during the broadcast, despite her obvious “talents.”
This seems like a no brainer for Inside Edition—not only is Webb gorgeous and well spoken, she’s probably fairly knowledgeable when it comes to football, thanks to boyfriend McCarron. Add to the fact that she’s been tearing up the Internet the last month following the Musburger incident, so her popularity (as evidenced by her 271,000 Twitter followers) is peaking, which means it’s a good time to cash in on her sudden fame before the former Miss Alabama USA becomes yesterday’s news.
So excited to be chosen to cover the Super Bowl XLVII for @insideedition in New Orleans!

Will she do well? It’s probably safe to assume yes. But if she somehow screws up terribly on-air, I doubt it will matter much. Guaranteed that 99% of the guys tuning in to see Webb’s coverage of the Super Bowl for Inside Edition won’t be watching for her insight and analysis.
