My vote goes to Channel 2: Susan Carlson and Dana Kozlov are cute. Oh, and that Antonio Mora, so dreamy!

Cinnamon / April 30, 2004 5:22 PM

This guy is the most annoying, but none of them really turn my crank. If Carol Moran was a guy, maybe. I like my anchors smart!

Craig / April 30, 2004 5:28 PM

Tonya Francisco on CLTV. Woo.

Eamon / April 30, 2004 5:52 PM

Dan Jiggetts. I don't swing that way, but dammit, he was a Bear. Represent!

Femme-wise, I like that Nancy Pender. Every time she says her name, my wife and I immediately correct her: "Nancy Pendulous".

The women, definitely Tamron Hall. The guys are all scary and mannequinesque! But if I had to choose locally, it would be either Don Lemon or Steve Dolinsky (who is much better looking in person.)

Nationally, Stone Phillips without a doubt . GRRRRR!

Anna Davlantes. I once saw her walking down Michigan Ave. and if you think she looks good on TV you should see her in person. YeeeOWtch!!!

NBC 5, for having the cojones to hire a guy with the name Dick Johnson.

I've always had a thing for Tom Brokaw. One time they showed him, not during the newscast, as a spectator at a basketball game, and I was like, who is that hottie!?! Sarah Schulte with all her different hats when she's broadcasting outside is kinda nice. We'll also give a shout out to Diann Burns, Kathy Brock, Linda Yu in the old days before she dyed her hair, and Tamron Hall.

Don't know if she's a bona fide meteorologist, but WFLD's MICHELLE LEIGH is a fox thing in the morning.

Don't get me started about early/mid-'90s ALISON ROSATI on WMAQ's First Thing in the Morning...

Andrew / May 1, 2004 8:37 AM

WBEZ of course. Just because you can't see them doesn't mean they're not hot...

Benjy / May 1, 2004 2:01 PM

Nationally, nobody compares to Rudi Bahktier on CNN Headline. Locally, I'd have to go with Stacia Dubin.

Jerry / May 1, 2004 2:10 PM

Locally, Tamron Hall on Fox. My favorite are on Univision, they have some gorgeous anchors.

pmac / May 2, 2004 9:45 AM

Hands down, financial analyst Maria Bartiroma. She's so fine!

Vinnie / May 2, 2004 10:51 AM

Her name is Jackie BANG.

jennifer / May 3, 2004 10:00 AM

Mark Suppelsa! Mark Suppelsa! (FOX)

Mike Barz! Mike Barz! (WGN Morning Show)

Anne / May 3, 2004 11:05 AM

I have a crush on Tony the Fresh Grocer (WGN morning news). Such a cutie . . . AND he knows his produce. Watch him handle those tomatoes sometime.

Ian / May 3, 2004 12:40 PM

NBC, care of Anna Davlantes

Jake / May 3, 2004 1:21 PM

Jim, there's grafitti in the men's room at the Long Room that says, "With a name like DICK JOHNSON, it's got to be huge."

'That Ian' / May 4, 2004 8:38 AM

News anchors aren't that hot -- they are more wierd-looking than anything. But if I had to choose I'd pick Kent Brockman I suppose.

Scott Knitter / May 20, 2004 11:39 AM

Anyone ever seen Steve Shadley of WBEZ? Just wondering...I have a mental image that goes with the voice but am probably way off.

Mark / May 21, 2004 10:59 PM

I can't believe nobody else has mentioned my number one pick for years - LAUREN COHN. Formerly on fox news, she is now on NBC in Philly. She arguably rivals Catherine Zeta-Jones in the looks department!

Gina / May 27, 2004 7:46 AM

Mike Barz on WGN is hot! Everytime I look at him, he gives me an orgasm. Rob Elgas on NBC does the same thing to me too!

Fastballer / May 27, 2004 6:16 PM

Tamron Hall is the hottest by far. And Lauren Cohn is very hot indeed, I wish she didn't leave Chicago, her and Tamron together made my morning

John Cordell / June 6, 2004 6:16 AM

TAMRON HALL (WFLD-TV Chicago) is my reason for getting up in the morning. Her personality can get anybody going. I would like to see her and Bruce Wolf (sports announcer) together more. Together they are funnier then Muhammad Ali and Howard Cosell.

Bridget / June 14, 2004 11:19 PM

I agree with Gina, everytime I see Mike Barz, he makes me have an orgasm...He drives me crazy!! I am a professional stripper, he can come over to the club anytime..Lap dances all night for nothing...In fact I would pay him, just to be with him!!

Jimi / June 17, 2004 5:30 PM

Stacia Dubin is hot.

Kim Vatis too, in that MILF sorta way...
