Former Sports Illustrated swimsuit model Kim Alexis has a new gig.

She will host the half-hour "Daily Edition," a syndicated TV show focusing on selected articles from publications such as Rolling Stone, US and Reader's Digest. It's being distributed by MGM, which also produces the new "National Enquirer" tabloid show."What we are trying to do with both shows is bring into the marketplace shows that have information and entertainment value," MGM TV Group President John Symes said.
