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 go to sleep any moment, would drone on giving the highlights on the days events. The arrival 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 information of their specific spheres. Sports, entertainment, current affairs, all began to be hosted at their very 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. A number of 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 required to know in the world of sports. Now sports channels have dedicated news channels that cover and bring to their viewers not only games but also 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 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 created a huge impact on news viewing was in the year 2000 when Naked News was launched. The program was launched 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 of the sections of the program. She continues to be a part of Naked News. Some of its initial success could be credited towards the free viewership of the channel, which did become immensely popular even in the lack 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 introduced a number of guest anchors to help keep the format interesting. Following the crash of the internet boom, just one segment of the program could be viewed free of charge and eventually by 2004 the entire 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 a number of television shows and also have also been featured in many newspapers and magazines.
