Former "American Idol" contestant Ayla Brown has a new job even before she graduates from Boston College.

The daughter of Massachusetts Republican Sen. Scott Brown is serving as CBS "Early Show" contributor. She's producing pieces focused on the youth audience.

Executive Producer David Friedman said Tuesday he became interested in Brown when she sang on the morning show. She had previously been an "American Idol" semifinalist.

He says, "You can't create the next Katie Couric; you just have to find talent that you think can develop into something."

The senator famously embarrassed his elder daughter on election night in January, when he told a nationwide audience she was single.

Her mother, Gail Huff, is already in television as a reporter for Boston's ABC affiliate, WCVB-TV.
