News channels have undergone plenty of change during the last few years. Some news programs have gone on to changing their formats, look and have brought in more attractive, 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 conjured up the picture 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 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. The program is arranged in Toronto and it is aired daily each episode being of 25 minutes. The highlight in this show is that the 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 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, during those times was the only anchor for the show and presented every one of the segments including weather, sports, entertainment etc. As the show became popular, the numbers of anchors increased and presently consists of eight female presenters and also have guest anchors featuring at the same time. With no marketing gimmick or strategy, this website became popular only through word of mouth marketing, soon becoming a frequented web destination.
This site received almost six million hits in a month during its initial days. An enormous contributor to 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 free of charge.
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 nation. However, the producers hope that they’ll 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 also have been featured in several television shows including 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 such as Playboy and TV Guide.
