Vote For The Hottest News Babe in Boston

Lets take a look at the nation's fifth largest media market in Boston. There are plenty of really beautiful women anchoring and reporting news in Boston so I filled up the survey box. I took some of the candidates from Irregahdless.com but also added some more candidates that I felt were worthy. I added Joyce Kulhawik because I used to love watching her on the show "Hot Ticket" and her cameos with Roger Ebert. I know she's probably old enough to be a grandma, but I still think she's really hot, especially for her age. Anyways if you don't see your favorite hottie Boston news babe, feel free to email me at anchorbabes@gmail.com so I can add it.

Cindy Fitzgibbon is the FOX25 Morning News meteorologist. She joined FOX25 news as weekend meteorologist in February 2002. A native New Englander, Cindy loves forecasting the weather where she grew up.

One on One with Cindy Fitzgibbon

How did you get started in TV news? I got my start in Bismarck North Dakota -- a long, long way from home! I decided on a career in meteorology in the 6th grade although not TV, because I was too shy. I did not decide to go the TV route until high school.

Best advice given to me: For a career in TV: ‘Be yourself!’ For a career in meteorology:

'You are only as good as your last forecast.’ Very humbling when the forecast is (as it can be occasionally) a bust!

Most embarrassing moment on TV: There have been so many on the morning show. I would have to say having old college video of me trying to do the weather back in the day (big, bad hair and purple tights!) appeared on our show much to my surprise. People still comment about that!

My free time is spent: I spend most of my free time with 'my boys.' I also enjoy home improvement projects and gardening when I have the time. There is something about digging in the dirt that I find therapeutic.

Favorite food: Love my mother's apple pie and my mother in-law’s eggplant parmesan. Since I'm Armenian I've known how to make a rice pilaf since I was about 6 years old. My husband loves it!

Favorite vacation place: Our best vacation was in Maui a few years ago before we had children -- so beautiful. I would love to go back someday with the kids when they are older.

Worst vacation experience: Returning from Cancun, Mexico with several (glass) bottles of vanilla as gifts the plane actually managed to somehow run over my suitcase! Needless to say, the bottles were shattered. My suitcase and EVERYTHING in it was ruined. I had to buy a whole new summer wardrobe.

Mish Michaels (WBZ4)
Mish Michaels joined the WBZ-TV Weather Team in September 2001, contributing to the station's weather coverage in new Emmy Award winning weather programming featuring two prime-time specials each year.

Before joining the WBZ-TV Weather Team, Michaels worked for The Weather Channel (TWC) as co-host of Atmospheres, a prime-time weather magazine show. Prior to that, she worked as weekend meteorologist for WHDH (NBC) in Boston from 1992-2000. During that time, she was twice named "Boston's Best Meteorologist" by the Improper Bostonian magazine and nominated for a New England Emmy on three occasions (1996,1998,2000).

I don't understand...Joyce Kuhlhawick?? WTF?? Who thinks she's hot?? And where's Ann Allred & Dylan Dreyer?? And what about that terrible picture of Bianca De La Garza-? If you go to www.cameroncole.net you'll find some better pictures of Bianca, and then she'll be getting the respect she deserves. Bianca is a total uber-babe. But really...a list of Boston hot news babes with no Ann Allred and no Dylan Dreyer is just absolutely asinine. They're both on WHDH (channel 7)in the morning...check 'em out. When you do, you'll be making some adjustments to this list...I guarantee it.

Wizard Cat would love to take both Bianca and Maria to bed at the same time, but Maria would have to bring those high-heeled boots to bed with her. We'd have a great time, the three of us, exploring each others bodies. Wizard Cat would give that experience five stars.
