News and news presenting has come a long way. Gone are the scripted times of news reading with news readers, appearing like they would go to sleep at any time, would drone on giving the highlights of the days events. The advent of satellite and cable tv changed everything and created the business enterprise 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 knowledge of 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 information regarding their preferred sports. A number of 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 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 provide to their viewers not only games but additionally sports reviews, statistical game analysis, player updates as well as their performance reviews too.
A large number of sports channels do compete against each other 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 actually do everything to stay on top.
One particular news provider that made a huge influence on news viewing was in the year 2000 when Naked News was launched. This program was released as a web based news service that featured a complete 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 merely one anchor, Victoria Sinclair, who presented all the sections of this program. She remains a part of Naked News. Most of its initial success could be credited to the free viewership of the channel, which did become immensely popular even in the absence of a marketing strategy.
They were popularized through the word-of mouth medium and increased in numbers from one to eight female anchors. The show also brought in several guest anchors to help keep the format interesting. Following a 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 turned 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 been featured in several newspapers and magazines.
