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 have introduced more attractive, 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 aspect of sensuality a step further and it has naked women dishing 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 it is aired daily each episode being of twenty five minutes. The highlight of this show is the fact that female or male 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 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 very first anchor of Naked News was Victoria Sinclair who, during those times was the only anchor for that show and presented every one of the segments including weather, sports, entertainment etc. As 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 web site became popular only through word of mouth, soon becoming a frequented web destination.
This site 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, only one of the news segments could possibly be seen totally free and after 2004, the site became a paid one. Again in 2008 two segments of the show could be viewed for free.
Naked News launched Naked New Japan in 2006, in colaboration 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, because of the stringent broadcasting norms of the country. However, the producers hope that they will have the ability to show more in the future. The Naked News expansion mode continued with the launch of Naked News Italia in 2008.
Naked news presenters have been extremely popular and have been featured in several television shows including the Today Show, CBS Sunday Morning, and The View etc. They have also made several appearances on Entertainment Tonight and ET Insider. These presenters have been featured in numerous newspapers and magazines including Playboy and TV Guide.
