News and news presenting has come a long way. Gone are the scripted days of news reading with news readers, looking like they would go to sleep any moment, would drone on giving the highlights of the days events. The arrival of satellite and cable tv changed everything and made 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 information of their specific spheres. Sports, entertainment, current affairs, all started to be hosted at their own specific domains and catered for their selected audience.
Sports have always had a huge fan base and enthusiasts are always keen on 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 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 realm of sports. Now sports channels have dedicated news channels that cover and bring for their viewers not only games but also sports reviews, statistical game analysis, player updates as well as their performance reviews as well.
A large number of sport shows 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 stay on top.
One such news provider that made a huge influence 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 while they read the news and presented their segments.
Naked News began with merely one anchor, Victoria Sinclair, who presented all the parts of the program. She continues to be an integral part of Naked News. Most of its initial success can be credited towards the free viewership of the channel, which did become immensely popular even in the lack 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 brought in a number of guest anchors to keep the format interesting. Following the crash in the internet boom, just one segment on the program could possibly be viewed free of charge and eventually by 2004 the complete program was changed into a members only one without any segments available for free access.
The naked sports news presenters have been very popular and also have been featured in several tv programs and also have been featured in many newspapers and magazines.
