News channels have undergone plenty of change over the past few years. Some news programs have gone on to changing their formats, look and also have introduced more appealing, intelligent and witty news presenters in order to get more viewership and garner more revenues. The traditional weather girl from the news channels has always created the image of a very beautiful, attractive and sensual woman delivering the weather report. Naked News has taken this element of sensuality a step further and has naked women doling out the weather report!
Naked News calls itself a program which has “nothing to hide”. This web subscription program carries a complete and full television newscast. This program is arranged in Toronto and is aired daily each episode being of twenty five minutes. The highlight of this show is the fact that male or female anchors either read the news completely naked or they strip while they read their specified segments, such as weather, sports, entertainment, current affairs etc. It’s been noted that irrespective of the news presenters gender, the viewership of Naked News remains predominantly male.
Naked News made its debut in 2000 as a subscription based web news service that boasted of an all female cast. The very first anchor of Naked News was Victoria Sinclair who, at that time was the sole anchor for that show and presented all the segments including weather, sports, entertainment etc. Since the show gained popularity, the numbers of anchors increased and presently consists of eight female presenters and also have guest anchors featuring as well. With no marketing gimmick or strategy, this web site became popular only through word of mouth marketing, soon transforming into a frequented web destination.
This website received almost six million hits in a month during its initial days. A huge cause of its popularity was its free viewership as the site was supported entirely by advertising. Post 2002, just one of the news segments could possibly be seen for free and after 2004, the website became a paid one. Again in 2008 two segments of the show can be viewed for free.
Naked News launched Naked New Japan in 2006, in association with eGalaxy and Sunrise Corp. eGalaxy was the owner of Naked News and Sunrise Corp was a seller of services and goods over the internet. Naked News Japans presenters don’t strip completely, owing to the stringent broadcasting norms of the country. However, the producers hope that they’ll have the ability to show more in the future. The Naked News expansion mode continued together with the launch of Naked News Italia in 2008.
Naked news presenters have been extremely popular and have been featured in a number of television shows including the Today Show, CBS Sunday Morning, and The View etc. They’ve also made several appearances on Entertainment Tonight and ET Insider. These presenters have also been featured in numerous newspapers and magazines such as Playboy and TV Guide.
