The University of Georgia cheerleaders have been selected to appear on the NBC Today Show on Monday morning, May 13th. The Bulldogs will send 12 cheerleaders and one mascot to do a one-minute routine on the New York City Plaza, along with several bumpers in and out of commercial breaks, to kick off the Today Show’s “Varsity Week.”
Interesting that NBC is running “Varsity Week” during a time of the year with no college basketball and no college football.
The cheerleaders making the trip will represent UGA, the SEC and national college football.
“For me, I am most looking forward to seeing the excitement of the cheerleaders,” said Georgia cheerleaders coordinator Ben O’Brien. “I don’t think all of them have even been to New York City before, and much less to perform on the NBC Today Show. I am also really excited about being able to positively represent the great state of Georgia, our University and most importantly, the UGA Athletic Association on a live, national stage.”
The Georgia cheerleaders are the only collegiate spirit squad chosen to appear on the show, as the NBC TODAY show made selections based upon videos from the 2012 and 2013 NCA Collegiate National Championships.
Cheerleaders on national television? NBC? Sounds like a recipe for SEO gold.
