News and news presenting has come a long way. Gone are definitely the scripted days of news reading with news readers, looking like they might fall asleep 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 in 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 had a huge fan base and enthusiasts are invariably interested in sourcing information regarding their preferred sports. Several media giants went ahead into several alliances to gain greater coverage of sports events that were being kept in areas beyond their network and began broadcasting them on their 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 from the world of sports. Now sports channels have dedicated news channels that cover and provide for 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 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 to the channel, they do everything to remain at the 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 launched as a web based news service that featured a complete 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 sections of this program. She continues to be an integral part of Naked News. Most of its initial success can be credited to the free viewership of the channel, which did become immensely popular even in the absence of a marketing and advertising 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 the crash of the internet boom, just one segment on the program could be viewed for free and eventually by 2004 the complete program was turned into a members only one with no segments available for free access.
The naked sports news presenters have been extremely popular and also have been featured in several television shows and have also been featured in many newspapers and magazines.
