Vote For The Hottest News Babe in Philadelphia

Next up, the city of brotherly love, Philly. There was already a poll done by the Illadeph blog in which Jessica Borg won. But I wanted to add a couple of worthy candidates and plus I don't think Jessica is even the hottest news babe on her station 6ABC. My vote goes to Kerri-Lee Halkett, what a beauty she is, and she's from Victoria, BC to boot. But I was amazed at all the fine women you have to watch in Philly, some very hot and sexy broads. There is the very sexy Alycia Lane who was caught up in that whole Rich Eisen affair where Alycia emailed some racy photos of herself to Rich (you know, the annoying geeky sounding guy that anchors for the NFL Network). Anyways, I guess we should just get down to voting. If you don't see your favorite hottie Philadelphia news babe, feel free to email me at anchorbabes@gmail.com so I can add it.

Anchor Babes?
So where does CBS3's Mary Stoker-Smith fit in this mix? Black or white you'll not find a more beautiful woman on TV. You need to expand your criteria to include a bit more diversity.
