News channels have undergone plenty of change during the last number of 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 conventional weather girl of the news channels has always created the picture of a very beautiful, attractive and sensual woman delivering the weather report. Naked News has gotten this aspect of sensuality one step further and it has naked women doling out the weather report!
Naked News calls itself a program that has “nothing to hide”. This web subscription program features 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 in 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, including weather, sports, entertainment, current affairs etc. It has been noted that regardless of this news presenters gender, the viewership of Naked News remains predominantly male.
Naked News made its debut in 2000 as being a subscription based web news service that boasted of an all female cast. The first anchor of Naked News was Victoria Sinclair who, at that time was the sole anchor for that show and presented every one of the segments including weather, sports, entertainment etc. Since the show gained popularity, the numbers of anchors increased and presently includes eight female presenters and also have guest anchors featuring as well. Devoid of marketing gimmick or strategy, this website became popular only through word of mouth, soon becoming a frequented web destination.
This website received almost six million hits within a month during its initial days. An enormous 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 web. 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 down the road. The Naked News expansion mode continued together with the launch of Naked News Italia in 2008.
Naked news presenters happen to be very popular and have been featured in several tv shows such as The Today Show, CBS Sunday Morning, as well as the View etc. They have also made several appearances on Entertainment Tonight and ET Insider. These presenters have also been featured in several newspapers and magazines including Playboy and TV Guide.
To become a member of Naked News one has to be above eighteen years of age and get access to a daily feed of features, news and reports that are gathered all around the globe.
