News channels have undergone plenty of change over the past few years. Some news programs have gone on to changing their formats, look and have introduced more attractive, intelligent and witty news presenters to acheive more viewership and garner more revenues. The traditional weather girl of the news channels has always created the picture of a very beautiful, attractive and sensual woman delivering the weather report. Naked News has gotten this element of sensuality one step further and it has naked women doling out the weather report!
Naked News calls itself a program that has “nothing to hide”. This web subscription program features a complete and full television newscast. This program is arranged in Toronto and it is aired daily each episode being of 25 minutes. The highlight of this show is that the male or female anchors either read the news completely naked or they strip while they read their specified segments, including weather, sports, entertainment, current affairs etc. It has been noted that regardless of this news presenters gender, the viewership of Naked News remains predominantly male.
Naked News made its debut in 2000 as being a subscription based web news service that boasted of an all female cast. The very first anchor of Naked News was Victoria Sinclair who, at that time was the sole anchor for the show and presented every one of the segments including weather, sports, entertainment etc. As the show gained popularity, the numbers of anchors increased and presently includes eight female presenters and also have guest anchors featuring at the same time. Devoid of marketing gimmick or strategy, this web site shot to popularity only through word of mouth marketing, soon transforming into a frequented web destination.
This site received almost six million hits within a month during its initial days. A huge contributor to its popularity was its free viewership since the site was supported entirely by advertising. Post 2002, only one of the news segments could be seen totally free and after 2004, the website became a paid one. Again in 2008 two segments on the show can be viewed free of charge.
Naked News launched Naked New Japan in 2006, in association with eGalaxy and Sunrise Corp. eGalaxy was the owner of Naked News and Sunrise Corp was a seller of services and goods over the web. Naked News Japans presenters don’t strip completely, because of the stringent broadcasting norms of the country. However, the producers hope that they’ll be able to show more in the future. The Naked News expansion mode continued with the launch of Naked News Italia in 2008.
Naked news presenters have been extremely popular and have been featured in several television shows including the Today Show, CBS Sunday Morning, and The View etc. They’ve also made several appearances on Entertainment Tonight and ET Insider. These presenters have also been featured in numerous newspapers and magazines including Playboy and TV Guide.
To turn into a member of Naked News one has to be above eighteen years old and gain access to an every day feed of features, news and reports that are gathered from all around the globe.
