'Inside Edition' adds Gabby Douglas for Super Bowl

AP - Sports

NEW YORK (AP) -- Olympic gymnastics champion Gabby Douglas will work as a special correspondent for ''Inside Edition'' at the Super Bowl.

The 18-year-old Douglas won all-around and team gold medals at the 2012 London Olympics. The show said Tuesday she will report on the NFL championship from Jan. 28 through game day on Feb. 2.

''Inside Edition'' executive producer Charles Lachman calls Douglas ''full of energy, charming, smart and likable.''

Douglas says she's a big football fan, though her favorite team, the New England Patriots, lost in the AFC title game Sunday. She'll work with correspondent Megan Alexander on interviews and behind-the-scenes pieces.

Douglas has said she plans to try to defend her title at the 2016 Olympics, but she's been busy with plenty of TV appearances since London.
