Jenna Wolfe is a correspondent for NBC Today and a news anchor for Weekend Today who is also a certified personal trainer and a role model for lesbian and gays in the United States. This intelligent, attractive news anchor has recently been seen doing segments about helping people maintain their New Years resolutions but many entertainment insiders wonder if NBC missed a huge opportunity to make a statement for lesbian and gays worldwide by sending her to the 2014 Winter Olympics.
Jenna Wolfe is a sports aficionado as early in her television career she worked in Philadelphia for WPHL-TV as their first female sportscaster and she is a fitness fanatic as any viewer can see from her fit body and her recent New Years resolution segment which focused on tips about how to maintain the commitment to fitness in 2014. Her presence in Russia would have been a great sign of support to those in the lesbian and gay community who were made to feel unwelcome by the Russian stance toward lesbians and gays being at the Olympics.
What is very interesting about Jenna Wolfe is that while she is proud to be lesbian it does not define her. She considers herself a reporter who just happens to be a lesbian. Jenna Wolfe is a reporter who is unafraid of anything as she recently demonstrated when she decided to breastfeed in public as part of what she considered a social experiment and thus many entertainment insiders feel she would have been one of the ideal news correspondents to be in Russia.
Jenna Wolfe is one of the few news correspondents who by doing her job in Sochi, Russia at the 2014 Winter Olympics, could have sent a message to the Russian president and in the process a show of support to the lesbian and gay community in Russia.
