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 on the days events. The advent of satellite and cable tv 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 information of their specific spheres. Sports, entertainment, current affairs, all started to be hosted at their very own specific domains and catered to their selected audience.

Sports have always experienced a huge fan base and enthusiasts are always keen on sourcing information regarding their favorite 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 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 needed to know in the world of sports. Now sports channels have dedicated news channels which cover and bring to their viewers not only games but also sports reviews, statistical game analysis, player updates as well as their performance reviews as well.

Most of these sports channels do compete against each other 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 at the top.

One particular news provider that made a huge influence on news viewing was in the year 2000 when Naked News was released. 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 while they read the news and presented their segments.

Naked News began with only one anchor, Victoria Sinclair, who presented all of the parts of this program. She continues to be a part of Naked News. Most of its initial success could be credited towards the free viewership on the channel, which did become immensely popular even in the lack of a marketing and advertising strategy.

These folks were popularized through the word-of mouth medium and increased in numbers from one to eight female anchors. The show also introduced several guest anchors to keep the format interesting. Following a crash of the internet boom, just one segment of the program could possibly be viewed free of charge and eventually by 2004 the complete program was changed into a members only one with no segments accessible for free access.

The naked sports news presenters have been extremely popular and have been featured in a number of television shows and also have also been featured in several newspapers and magazines.
