News and news presenting has come a long way. Gone are definitely 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 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 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 for their selected audience.
Sports have always had a huge fan base and enthusiasts are invariably keen on sourcing more knowledge about their preferred sports. A number of 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 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 realm 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 as well.
Most of these sport shows do compete against one another trying for greater viewerships and take major efforts to make 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 actually do everything to remain at the 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 internet 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 when they read the news and presented their segments.
Naked News began with only one anchor, Victoria Sinclair, who presented all the sections 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 and advertising strategy.
They were popularized through the word-of mouth medium and increased in numbers from a single to eight female anchors. The show also introduced several guest anchors to keep the format interesting. Following the crash in the internet boom, only one segment of the program could be viewed free of charge and ultimately by 2004 the entire 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 television shows and have also been featured in several newspapers and magazines.
