News and news presenting has come a long way. Gone are definitely the scripted times of news reading with news readers, appearing like they might fall asleep at any time, would drone on giving the highlights of the days events. The arrival of satellite and cable television changed everything and made the business enterprise of news an important money crunching tool. With passing years, news started becoming much more category specific and thus 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 always keen on sourcing more knowledge about their preferred sports. Several media giants went ahead into several alliances to achieve greater coverage of sports events which 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 required to know in the world of sports. Now sports channels have dedicated news channels which cover and provide to their viewers not only games but additionally sports reviews, statistical game analysis, player updates and their performance reviews as well.
A large number of sports channels do compete against one another trying for greater viewerships and take major efforts to make this agenda a reality. With new interactive show formats, to more engaging, attractive and intelligent presenters to sometimes giving complete makeovers for the channel, they do everything to stay at the top.
One particular news provider that created a huge influence on news viewing was in the year 2000 when Naked News was launched. This program was launched as being 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 when they read the news and presented their segments.
Naked News began with only 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 to the free viewership of 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 several guest anchors to keep the format interesting. Following the crash of the internet boom, only one segment on the program could be viewed for free and ultimately by 2004 the complete program was turned into a members only one without any segments available for free access.
The naked sports news presenters have been extremely popular and also have been featured in several television shows and also have also been featured in many newspapers and magazines.
