News and news presenting has come a long way. Gone are the scripted times of news reading with news readers, appearing like they would fall asleep any moment, would drone on giving the highlights on the days events. The advent of satellite and cable television changed everything and created the business enterprise of news an important money crunching tool. With passing years, news started becoming much more category specific and thus gave rise to more channels that provided entertainment and knowledge in their specific spheres. Sports, entertainment, current affairs, all began to be hosted at their very own specific domains and catered for their selected audience.
Sports have always experienced a huge fan base and enthusiasts are always keen on sourcing information regarding their favorite sports. Several media giants went ahead into several alliances to gain greater coverage of sports events that were being held in areas beyond their network and began broadcasting them on their 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 in the world of sports. Now sports channels have dedicated news channels that cover and provide for their viewers not just games but additionally sports reviews, statistical game analysis, player updates and their performance reviews as well.
Most of these sports channels do compete against one another trying for greater viewerships and take major efforts for making 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 on top.
One particular news provider that made a huge impact on news viewing was in the year 2000 when Naked News was launched. The program was released as being a internet based news service that featured an entire television newscast and ran 25 minute daily shows from Toronto. The highlight of this program was that the presenters stripped when they read the news and presented their segments.
Naked News began with only one anchor, Victoria Sinclair, who presented all the sections of this program. She remains an integral part of Naked News. Some of its initial success can be credited towards the free viewership on the channel, which did become immensely popular even in the lack of a marketing strategy.
They were popularized by the word-of mouth medium and increased in numbers from one to eight female anchors. The show also introduced a number of guest anchors to help keep the format interesting. Following the crash of the internet boom, only one segment of the program could be viewed for free and eventually by 2004 the entire program was changed into a members only one with no segments accessible for free access.
The naked sports news presenters have been extremely popular and also have been featured in several television shows and also have also been featured in many newspapers and magazines.
