News and news presenting has come a long way. Gone are the scripted days of news reading with news readers, looking like they would fall asleep any moment, would drone on giving the highlights of the days events. The advent of satellite and cable television changed everything and created the business enterprise of news a major 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 started 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 invariably keen on sourcing information regarding their favorite sports. A number of 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 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 required to know from the realm of sports. Now sports channels have dedicated news channels which 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 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 remain on top.
One such news provider that created a huge impact on news viewing was in the year 2000 when Naked News was launched. The program was launched as being 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 this program. She continues to be an integral part of Naked News. Most of its initial success could be credited towards the free viewership on the channel, which did become immensely popular even in the absence of a marketing strategy.
These folks were popularized by the word-of mouth medium and increased in numbers from a single to eight female anchors. The show also brought in a number of guest anchors to help keep the format interesting. Following the crash of the internet boom, only one segment on the program could be viewed free of charge and ultimately by 2004 the complete program was changed into a members only one without any segments accessible for free access.
The naked sports news presenters have been extremely popular and also have been featured in a number of television shows and have been featured in many newspapers and magazines.
