News and news presenting has come a long way. Gone are 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 a major money crunching tool. With passing years, news started becoming much more category specific and so gave rise to more channels that provided entertainment and information 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 experienced a huge fan base and enthusiasts are always interested in 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 held in areas beyond their network and began broadcasting them on their own 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 from the realm of sports. Now sports channels have dedicated news channels which cover and provide for their viewers not just games but also sports reviews, statistical game analysis, player updates as well as their performance reviews too.
Most of these sport shows 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 actually do everything to remain at the top.
One particular news provider that made a huge impact on news viewing was in the year 2000 when Naked News was released. The program was released as being a internet 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 merely one anchor, Victoria Sinclair, who presented all the parts of the program. She continues to be an integral part of Naked News. Some 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.
They were popularized by the word-of mouth medium and increased in numbers from one to eight female anchors. The show also introduced several guest anchors to help keep the format interesting. Following the crash in the internet boom, just one segment of the program could be viewed for free and ultimately by 2004 the entire program was turned into a members only one without any segments accessible for free access.
The naked sports news presenters have also been extremely popular and have been featured in a number of tv programs and also have also been featured in several newspapers and magazines.
