Vote For The Hottest News Babe in Seattle

The emerald city, the rainy city, sleepless in Seattle, all that stuff. The Pacific Northwest has been blessed by some real hot anchors. We get all the major Seattle networks here in Vancouver so I see many of the hot news babes all the time. I'll admit, my vote goes to Lisa Gangel, ever since she started at KING5, I always try to catch her on the weekends. I also used to catch Rebecca Stevenson but now that she is off the air, I miss her (she is rumored to be starting at KIRO in April). If you don't see your favorite hottie Seattle news babe, feel free to email me at so I can add it.

Christine Chen (KCTS)

Christine is an eight-time Emmy award nominee and two-time Emmy award winner for excellence as a reporter and anchor, with 16 years of experience in news broadcasting. She was honored, in part, for her local coverage on the morning of 9-11. Previously, Christine anchored Q13 Fox News@10 and was the founding anchor for Q13 Fox News This Morning. She also anchored the final newscast for KSTW's highly-regarded 10 O'clock News in 1998. Christine is also a marketing and communications consultant for various local and national companies.

Jennifer Cabala (Q13)
Jennifer Cabala anchors Q13 FOX News at Ten on Friday and Saturday nights with David Rose.

Jennifer came to Seattle in January 2007 from Denver, where she worked as a reporter and backup anchor for KCNC-TV. During her time there, her breaking-news coverage of the murder of a Denver police officer helped the station win an Emmy Award for "Best Newscast". She also regularly appeared on the "CBS Early Show," The Weather Channel, and on CBS Radio, reporting on Colorado's blizzards.

Before moving to Denver, Jennifer worked as an anchor and reporter in Madison, Wisconsin, and Cheyenne, Wyoming, where she received awards including Best Anchor, Best Newscast, and Community Hero.

Jennifer has covered major stories across the country including the Bailey High School shooting, the bizarre case of onetime JonBenet Ramsey suspect John Mark Karr, and the faked kidnapping of Audrey Seiler. Still, Jennifer's favorite stories are about regular people doing something for their community. One of her most well-received stories here at Q13 FOX News, so far, has been her report on the "living memorial" for Julie Becker, an Eastside woman who gathered family and friends together for a celebration before losing her fight with cancer, rather than waiting to have them gather for a memorial after she was gone.

Jennifer loves the outdoors, and is enjoying discovering all Western Washington has to offer. In her spare time, she likes to ski, hike, bike, and go camping with her husband.

Rebecca Stevenson (Soon to be KIRO)
Meteorologist Rebecca Stevenson began working in the Northwest First Alert Weather Center in May of 2000. She is the evening meteorologist on KING 5 News at 10pm on KONG 6/16 alongside Dennis Bounds and Lori Matsukawa and on NorthWest News Evening Edition on NorthWest Cable News with Meg Coyle and Dean Staley.

Rebecca grew up in Florida where she acquired first-hand experience with hurricanes, heavy rain and flooding. She earned her first bachelor's degree from Tarkio College in Tarkio, Mo., and the four years of living in the Midwest gave her experience with heavy snow, strong winds and very cold temperatures in the winter.

But, the move to the Northwest in 1992 brought the best weather experience. Fog, sun breaks, mountain snow and sunny summers all allow a thousand activities to do outside and she says forecasting them is even more enjoyable. "I like tracking storms, seeing how they develop and staying three steps ahead of them," she said.

Rebecca completed the three-year Meteorology program at Mississippi State University, is working on a second bachelor's degree in the geosciences and is continuing to explore the Northwest back roads.
