Laurie Dhue Shows Off those Fantastic Legs

Mmmmm, yummy.... One of the reasons to watch Laurie Dhue is to watch her damn fine sexy legs and choice of footwear. These screen caps were from yesterday I believe, she is not afraid to show them damn fine sexy legs with those tight leather boots. Not a big fan of her face, but who's looking up there anyways...

Catfight at FOX, Courtney Friel Steals the Spotlight

There is a posting on TVNewser about a rumor that at least some of the ladies on FOX are getting all worked up over the increased airtime that the Barbie lookalike Courtney Friel has been getting lately. Definitely some "hot girl envy" going on at FOX. But I guess you have to expect that when you hire all the hottest news babes to read your news. Now, the picture that comes to my mind is the mildly hot Gretchen Carlson, pulling the hair of Courtney Friel, while Alisyn Camerota is jumping on top of both. There's nothing that drives men hornier than a catfight between hot babes. As explained on Seinfeld, it's the possibility in between all the scratching and clawing that something sexual might happen between the women. Oooohhh, aahhhhh, catfight!!

E.D. Hill Exposes her Garter and Stockings

I used to think E.D. Hill was really hot, but of course she's much older now so not so much. She's still hot, but in a GILF sort of way. I'm not sure if she was doing this on purpose but E.D. has exposed her stockings and garter for the world to see. There was a woman in the office I used to work at that would wear short skirts with stockings and whenever we'd have meetings, I would sit beside her and her stockings would show. I think she was doing it on purpose, it made a lot of men in the office horny as heck.

She probably had the chance to go to one of the big box networks a long time ago, but Cheryl is Chicago, through and through.

Allison Payne (WGN)
Allison Payne is the co-anchor of WGN News at Nine in Chicago, a position she's held since she started with the station in 1990. During her tenure with WGN, Payne has won numerous awards including seven emmys for reporting. When asked about the hilights of her career Payne always points to the international reporting she's done. Payne was the first Chicago broadcaster to travel to Kenya to report on the African roots of Senator Barack Obama. In 2006, she travelled to the Middle East with the Reverend Jesse Jackson to report on tensions between Lebanon, Israel, and Syria. Payne paid her own fare for these journies because she believes strongly that "getting from behind the desk and out into the world" makes her a better anchor. "To me travel is the best education," says Payne. "I feel much better reading stories on Africa and the Middle East now that I have been there."

Payne was born in Richmond, Virginia to Dana and Kathryn Payne. At age five, her parents moved north to Detroit, Michigan where Payne attended Catholic grade school. She is a graduate of Renaissance High School in Detroit and holds a B.A. in Liberal Arts from the University of Detroit Mercy. Payne attended Bowling Green State University in Ohio for her Masters Degree in Radio/TV/Film.

Payne's first job in tv news was at WNWO TV in Toledo, Ohio where she started as an intern and within months was the main anchor of the station's late news. From there Payne moved to WNEM-TV in Saginaw, Michigan as the co-anchor of the 6 and 11 o'clock newscast. Within two years, Payne got word that Chicago was calling.

"Growing up in Detroit, I knew Chicago was the mecca of the Midwest. I couldn't believe WGN was interested in me. I was so young and still so inexperienced." But without even a tryout, then news director, Paul Davis, offered Payne the job. "I figured if I lasted three months here I would consider myself a success. And here I am seventeen years later!" Payne says she couldn't have done it without her professionally unselfish and supportive co-anchor, Steve Sanders. "He's a real delight and a true Southern gentleman."

Payne also credits Gloria Brown, producer of the station's weekly community affairs program, People to People. ""Gloria has been a rock for me at 'GN. Whenever I get tired, Gloria is there to inspire me." Payne credits Brown for helping her land an interview with former president Bill Clinton on his last trip to Chicago as president. Together, Payne and Brown have covered several special events including the funeral of Coretta Scott King in Atlanta.

Payne's goal now is to reach back and help as many young people as she can achieve their goals. "I love working with interns. They become like my own kids to me." Payne recently teamed up with Jaqueline Jackson, Jr on a state program that helps teenage parents get their GED. This is where the blessing is for me. If I can help or inspire just one of these young people, I will feel blessed.

Kim Vatis (NBC5)
Kim Vatis joined NBC5 News as a general assignment reporter in November 1997.

Prior to joining NBC5, Vatis was a weekend morning anchor and fill-in weekday evening anchor for WCPX-TV in Orlando, Fla.

From 1990-1995, Vatis anchored the top-rated weekday 6 p.m. and 11 p.m. newscasts at WJXT-TV in Jacksonville, Fla.

Since Vatis' broadcasting debut in 1985, she has spent time anchoring and reporting at WABI-TV in Bangor, Maine and at WCJB-TV and WUFT-TV in Gainesville, Fla.

Alisyn Camerota, Looking Smoking Hot

I'll eventually do a profile on Alisyn Camerota because she is smoking hot. But I was going through screencaps from yesterday and couldn't resist posting these pics of Alisyn. Those 2 fat old chicks definitely have the hot girl envy going on, they're rolling their eyes at Alisyn, but Alisyn knows she's got it going on, she's got a beautiful smile and very sexy hair. Alisyn definitely looked ready to go, if you know what I mean...

Robin Meade, again in Sexy Leather Boots

Robin Meade was looking especially hot today, especially in her shiny black knee-high leather stilletos. I'm not a huge fan of the sweater she has on as it doesn't show off her magnificent breasts, though you can see her large chest in the second photo below. I was in the grocery store the other day and I saw this hot woman that had similar black leather stilleto boots, I almost rammed my shopping cart into the some fat guy in front of me, damn she was hot...

Contessa Brewer, MSNBC's Hot and Charismatic News Babe

Overall Hotness: 7.5/10
Face: 7.5/10
Body: 7.5/10
Legs: 7.5/10
Personality: 8/10

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket One of the hotter anchors on MSNBC is Contessa Brewer. First off, I love her name, Contessa, that's just an extremely sexy name, her parents did good with that one. It's one of those names where if someone introduced their wife as "Contessa", you'd immediately have a visual of a hot babe, then you actually see her and you are floored. I like the way she talks too, the Wisconsin/Chicago accent is really cool. A friend of mine is from Wisconsin and he talks the same way.

As for Contessa's visuals, she is very hot overall. She has a pretty face that doesn't require makeup to make her look hot. In a way, she's sort of looks like Courtney Cox. The only thing I don't like about her face is that it's kind of boxy, round is better. Her body isn't great, but good overall, very slim and tight. She doesn't show off her legs much but when she does, they look good, she appears to be pretty tall.

One of the best things I like about Contessa is her personality. Whenever I see her on MSNBC she's always punchy and intelligent. She's feisty and isn't afraid of the more controversial topics. She definitely doesn't appear diva-like and could have an intelligent conversation with. As far as the whole Don Imus feud she had going on, I don't know who Don was talking about, but Contessa is definitely not "fat".

This is her bio from the MSNBC website:

Contessa Brewer joined MSNBC in September 2003. She serves as an anchor for MSNBC.

Brewer previously anchored weekend evening newscasts for WTMJ-TV in Milwaukee, Wis. She also served as an anchor and reporter for Palm Springs, Calif. and at KRNV-TV in Reno.

Brewer is a magna cum laude graduate of the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications at Syracuse University, where she holds a bachelor of science in broadcast journalism.

Brewer currently resides in New York City.

This is a recent clip with Contessa discussing the difficulties of watching her Packers against the Cowboys (video launches a separate window),
Many won't see Pack, 'Boys game
Many won't see Pack, 'Boys game

This is a funny clip with Contessa caught in an awkward teleprompt where she doesn't want to read "I'm not gay",

Here are some nice pics of Contessa, the last one is an informal one where she was at a charity event,

Jenna Lee on Cover of Young Money Mag

One news hottie that seems to be everywhere these days is Jenna Lee of Fox Business Network. She was featured by Extra as one of the most eligible hotties and now TVNewser is reporting that she will grace the cover of Young Money Mag. I'm not enamored with Jenna, but she is extremely cute. She has the really young thing going on, the barely legal look. I think that especially appeals to the financial types, you know, the 60 and over white males that have the schoolgirl fetish going on. Anyways, I leave you with her Extra segment...

Wanna hook up with other hot young professionals? What are you waiting for, find your hot new friend online today.

Megan Henderson (FOX4)
It's the question I'm asked most often: How early do I have to get up to host Good Day?

The answer? 2:15am. Cue the violins...

No, the truth is I absolutely love what I do and getting the chance to do it everyday makes it all worth it (although I fully admit to cursing my alarm clock quite often!).

My broadcast career started in Wichita Falls where I did a little bit of everything - from reporting and producing and editing.

From there, I took a job at the FOX station in Salt Lake City as a general assignment reporter and eventually worked my way up to co-anchor of "Good Day Utah" and FOX 13 News at Noon. I joined FOX 4 as co-anchor of "Good Day" in August of 2003.

I grew up in sunny San Clemente, California, and graduated from Arizona State University with a degree in Broadcast Journalism.

When I'm not working, you'll find me traveling, volunteering, enjoying great food, napping, spending time with friends and family, going to the gym, watching sports, and (most importantly) sleeping in!

Karen is deeply devoted to the cause of finding a cure for breast cancer. Her mother and both grandmothers had breast cancer, and one of her grandmothers died from the disease. Because Karen has two daughters of her own, finding a cure is especially important to her. Karen was an Honorary Co-Chair for the 2000 Komen Dallas Race for the Cure and that same year she received a Macy's "Heart and Soul Award" for her work in the fight against breast cancer. In 2005, she received the inaugural "Commitment to the Cure" award.

Karen has also supported, since their inception, the survivors luncheon sponsored by the Joanie Hatcher Memorial Survivors Endowment Fund and the Celebrating Women luncheon presented by the Baylor Sammons Breast Center.

Karen is a member of the UTA Alumni Association, the National Association of Hispanic Journalists, and she is on the Board of Community Advisors for the Junior League of Arlington, as well as the executive board of the Home and School Association for her childrens' school.

She and her husband Jim have three children, Jake, Katie and Kylie.

Macie Jepson (WFAA)
Thanks for checking out my corner of the world. It's important for you to know a little bit about the people you invite into your home every evening.

I came to WFAA in 2000 after six years in Cleveland, Ohio. It was like coming home; my husband is from Beaumont, and I'm from Shreveport, Louisiana. Not only is Dallas a nice place between our two families, but the news operation is respected across the nation. Working for WFAA was always my professional goal.

I anchor the 5:00 News with Jeff Brady and report on family issues. But I've covered just about every beat... education, medical and police- in my years as a reporter. I went to Cleveland for the challenge of a talk show and morning news cast. It was great fun, but I'm glad to be closer to family.

I juggle my work time with being a wife and mom. My husband and I have two daughters. It's important for us to teach them civic responsibility; my community involvement revolves around charities for children. I am currently a Trustee on the board of The Family Place in Dallas, an advisory board member for Forrest Outreach Foundation and a Gala advisory member for the Collin County Children's Advocacy Center.

I also volunteer for my church and support events of The Classics of Plano.

That said, it's also important to spend quality "down" time with my family. We like to travel and be outdoors together. I also like to ski, read and help my husband in remodeling projects.

I've received a few awards and Emmy nominations along the way, but the most recent award is something I'm proud of. American Women in Radio and Television's Broadcast News Personality of the Year. It's nice to be appreciated for a smile every now and again- especially when the news is particularly harsh.

By the way, my co-anchor Jeff Brady and I are OLD friends. We worked together at KTBS in Shreveport, Louisiana in the early 90's. Working together now is truly a highlight of my job.

Kristine Kahanek (CBS11)
A Dallas/Fort Worth market veteran, Kristine Kahanek was most recently a meteorologist with ABC affiliate WFAA-TV before joining CBS 11 News.

Kristine grew up on a horse farm near Columbus, Ohio and lived there until she was 12. Her mother, an equestrian, stayed home with Kristine and her younger brother, Brian. Her father, then a lieutenant colonel in the Air Force, was the person who sparked Kristine's interest in weather. Once he retired, the family moved to Boerne, Texas.

Previously, Kristine worked at KVUE-TV in Austin and KXXV-TV in Waco. With a degree in atmospheric science, she began her career at the National Weather Service in Austin. She is certified by both the American Meteorological Society and the National Weather Association. She was also named "Best Meteorologist" by D Magazine in 2005.

Natalie Solis (FOX4)
It's true what they say, understanding others helps us understand ourselves.

Well, in my quest for understanding (OK, let's be honest, a little excitement!) this girl from San Antonio didn't exactly follow a straight and narrow path.

Along the way, I traversed the jungles of Costa Rica, saw first-hand the weathered faces of Guatemalan farmers, talked politics with locals over un cafecito in Cuba, cozied up to a camel in Morocco, dined in the Eiffel Tower, rattled castanets in Spain, and the list goes on.

Sometimes I was gainfully employed, other times I was stretching each penny as far as possible.

It's no secret I LOVE to travel, but even more thrilling to me than experiencing a new place, is meeting new people, learning their history, absorbing their culture.

I started in TV news because I had an uncle in the business and what he did seemed like the best possible job a person could have: tell people's stories, simple as that.

I was a sophomore at Brown University when it became clear to me I wanted to be a journalist.

My mother -- a hard-working, single parent -- had hoped I'd continue on the pre-med track I had started on, but that wasn't in the cards.

I graduated and went to work at NBC News in New York. It was an amazing first job, but it was far more commitment than I was ready for at the ripe old age of 22. When else was I going to be young, unattached and virtually care free?!

So I sold my car, packed my bags and decided to see the places I'd only read about. During my travels, I didn't always know where I'd end up, but I knew I'd learn something.

I eventually settled down again, landed a reporting gig at a small station in New Jersey and from there moved to Miami, where there is no shortage of news, ranging from hurricanes and the devastation that follows to what seemed like weekly police standoffs and hostage situations to immigration and cultural issues to high- profile court cases, and then of course, celebrity drama.

Yes, I covered it all.

Now here I am, years after I left, back in my home state, close to my family.

But this isn't where my story ends.

Each day is still an adventure, only now I feel a greater responsibility as a journalist to the people nearest and dearest to my heart. When I cover a story, I'm allowed a glimpse into someone's life, and I get to walk in their shoes, if only for a moment.

My hope is that by telling people's stories we all get to embark on a journey and we all get to keep the souvenir -- a better understanding of ourselves and the world around us.

Ironically, her show is a 10-minute news tele-cast geared towards children ages 6-12. I wouldn't be surprised if the male 18-24 demo showed up prominently in the ratings. Ellie has started to make some appearances on CBBC's regular newscast 24 though. Still, I think it's probably better if she stays on Newsround as she probably has more freedom to wear whatever clothes she wants.

Anyways, Ellie is extremely cute, I wouldn't necessarily call her super-hot. She's got the former college girl look, as in the girl you used to go to school with that was semi-hot and slept with once after a drunken night of partying, but of course now that she's on TV she seems so much hotter than before. When you watch and listen to Ellie, there's something about her that makes you think that she's really kinky, she's definitely into the dirty stuff. I guess that's the appeal of Ellie.

Ellie definitely has the pretty face, it's her best feature. But I didn't rate her very high for her body as it seems she is slightly flat-chested and she doesn't show much of her legs. Though I love her accent. The British accent is so neat, you could be cursing and it would still sound so sophisticated. I once dated an older Australian woman and I could listen to her talk for hours.

Here is Ellie's website, and here is her bio from wikipedia:

Ellie Crisell (born 1976 in County Durham, UK), is an English journalist and television presenter. Crisell currently works on the BBC's children's news bulletin program Newsround on CBBC, Newsround Extra; and as an occasional presenter on BBC News 24.

Crisell attended Dame Allan's Girls School, Newcastle upon Tyne, then going on to the University of Birmingham, to achieve an MA in Broadcast Journalism at City University of London.

Crisell worked for the Mail on Sunday for a year, and a year on radio. She then worked for her local regional broadcaster Tyne Tees Television as a newsreader.

Ellie Crisell started as a Newsround presenter in February 2003 after Becky Jago, the previous leading presenter, decided to leave. Notable stories which Ellie was personally involved in reporting included the 2004 Indian Ocean earthquake in which she travelled to Indonesia to see in person the effects of the disaster. She also travelled to Athens in Greece to give daily reports on the 2004 Summer Olympics.

Away from children's news, on 12 September 2006 Crisell appeared on Newsnight, her first non-sports based appearance on BBC News adult oriented output. She has also appeared on BBC One's breakfast news output, BBC Breakfast, presenting news and updates from the Olympics in Athens. In November 2006 Crisell started occasional presentation for BBC News 24

It was hard to find video clips of Ellie but I found a couple. None really show much of Ellie, but at least you can hear her sexy British accent.

The creator of this video is having fun with Ellie's co-host,

I grabbed a bunch of pictures of Ellie, enjoy...

Julie Banderas Looking Hot Yesterday

I'm not a huge Julie Banderas fan, but in browsing screen caps the other day, I found these pictures with Julie looking very hot and sexy in her white/black outfit and leather stilleto boots. There is nothing sexier than a woman in leather stilleto boots (I think I've said that before). An ex-girlfriend of mine used to call them "f** me boots". I love Julie's outfit here, the white/black is very sexy and shows off her nice size boosom, she looks like a hot chick working cosmetics.
