News and news presenting has come a long way. Gone are the scripted times of news reading with news readers, looking like they might go to sleep any moment, would drone on giving the highlights on the days events. The advent of satellite and cable tv 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 thus gave rise to more channels that provided entertainment and knowledge of their specific spheres. Sports, entertainment, current affairs, all started 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 favorite sports. Several media giants went ahead into several alliances to achieve greater coverage of sports events that were being kept in areas beyond their network and began broadcasting them on their own networks.
This gave them an increased 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 in the realm of sports. Now sports channels have dedicated news channels which cover and provide for their viewers not just games but also sports reviews, statistical game analysis, player updates as well as their performance reviews too.
Most of these sports channels do compete against one another trying for greater viewerships and take major efforts for making this agenda a reality. With new interactive show formats, to more engaging, attractive and intelligent presenters to sometimes giving complete makeovers to the channel, they do everything to remain on top.
One particular news provider that created a huge influence on news viewing was in the year 2000 when Naked News was released. This 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 while 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 continues to be a part of Naked News. Most of its initial success can 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 one to eight female anchors. The show also introduced several guest anchors to keep the format interesting. Following a crash in the internet boom, just one segment on the program could be viewed free of charge and ultimately 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 tv programs and also have also been featured in many newspapers and magazines.
