News and news presenting has come a long way. Gone are the scripted days of news reading with news readers, appearing like they might fall asleep at any time, would drone on giving the highlights on the days events. The arrival of satellite and cable tv changed everything and created the business of news an important money crunching tool. With passing years, news started becoming even more category specific and so gave rise to more channels that provided entertainment and information in their specific spheres. Sports, entertainment, current affairs, all began to be hosted at their own specific domains and catered to their selected audience.
Sports have always experienced a huge fan base and enthusiasts are invariably interested in sourcing more knowledge about their preferred sports. Several media giants went ahead into several alliances to gain greater coverage of sports events which were being held in areas beyond their network and began broadcasting them on their own networks.
This gave them a larger viewership that translated into higher revenues. Gradually from being broadcasters of live or recorded games, these sports channels developed programs that covered everything and anything that one needed to know from the world of sports. Now sports channels have dedicated news channels that cover and bring for their viewers not only games but additionally sports reviews, statistical game analysis, player updates as well as their performance reviews as well.
Most of these sports channels do compete against one another trying for greater viewerships and take major efforts to make this agenda a real possibility. With new interactive show formats, to more engaging, attractive and intelligent presenters to sometimes giving complete makeovers for the channel, they do everything to stay at the top.
One such news provider that made a huge impact on news viewing was in the year 2000 when Naked News was launched. This program was launched as a internet based news service that featured an entire television newscast and ran 25 minute daily shows from Toronto. The highlight in this program was that the presenters stripped when they read the news and presented their segments.
Naked News began with merely one anchor, Victoria Sinclair, who presented all of the sections of the program. She continues to be an integral part of Naked News. Some of its initial success can be credited to the free viewership of the channel, which did become immensely popular even in the lack of a marketing and advertising strategy.
These folks were popularized through the word-of mouth medium and increased in numbers from a single to eight female anchors. The show also introduced several guest anchors to help keep the format interesting. Following a crash in the internet boom, only one segment on the program could possibly be viewed for free and eventually by 2004 the complete program was turned into a members only one without any segments available for free access.
The naked sports news presenters have been extremely popular and have been featured in a number of television shows and also have also been featured in several newspapers and magazines.
