Laurie Dhue on FBN

Apparently the ratings for FBN are not bad. It helps when you bring in the heavyweights like Laurie Dhue on Happy Hour to help boost the numbers. As usual, Laurie was looking fantastic.


Laurie is still the hottest chick in the room,

Erin Burnett to Lighten up Your Day

Oil cracks 100, DJIA plummets again, as you watch the carnage unfold on Wall Street, at least we have International Superstar, Erin Burnett to soften the blow. I love her eyes, what color are they anyway, looks like blue-green.

Talking bears is mostly somber news, even for Erin...

Erin wonders if the bottom has fallen out of the economy, could it really be a 'Re____', say it ain't so Erin...

Following the Presidential Election with Mika Brzezinski

If you absolutely must follow the latest in the Presidential Election, my pick would be to stay with one of my favorite anchors, Mika Brzezinski of Morning Joe on MSNBC. She's not super-hot, more like semi-hot but Mika isn't just your regular talking head, she knows a thing or 2 about politics. After all, her father was National Security Advisor under Jimmy Carter.

Mika and Joe, enjoying a cup of Joe and talking about the Iowa Caucus...

Diana Swain Lights up Canadian TV

Overall Hotness: 7.5/10
Face: 8/10
Body: 7.5/10
Legs: 7/10
Personality: 7.5/10

Photobucket Perhaps of all the Canadian National TV news babes, my personal favorite is Diana Swain. She used to a regular doing the weekend 1-hour primetime National news broadcast but I see her sparingly now. I believe she still subs in when Carole MacNeil is away though. She holds a regular gig at CBC Toronto as their 6 O'Clock news anchor. There are plenty of hot National TV news babes in Canada to choose from but I just think Diana not only is extremely hot, but she knows a thing or 2 about what she's reporting. She probably has the prettiest face on Canadian TV.

Of all the different ways she styles her hair, I like the short curly look on Diana. She doesn't wow you with her looks, but she's like that quiet girl in class that all of a sudden is really hot because she's done up nice.

I actually saw Diana in person once in Toronto. I was in Lester B. Pearson airport in transit between Montreal and Vancouver. I came out of the secure area to meet a buddy of mine to share a beer for an hour or so. I was waiting there when I saw a bunch of CBC people, I think they were filming a security story or something because there was an RCMP dude. Anyways, Diana was there talking with some airport people. She definitely looked hotter in person than on TV. She's really tall too, and though you can't tell on TV, but she has a wicked body. She was wearing tight white pants and I had a clear view of her butt, very nice.

Anyways, here is what her bio page on CBC says:

Diana Swain is the host of CBC's suppertime news program, CBC News at Six/Toronto and has a number of other network assignments. As host of Face to Face on CBC Newsworld, Swain interviews newsmakers from around the world. She also frequently appears on CBC's The National as substitute host.

After working in private radio and television, Swain arrived at Canada's public broadcaster in 1990. She quickly moved from local news reporter to The National as a correspondent in 1993, covering Manitoba and Saskatchewan. She then anchored the award-winning local news program in Winnipeg until 2001.

Swain became co-host of CBC's investigative news magazine program, Disclosure where her work took her to stories around North America, Europe and Central America. After three seasons with Disclosure, the program's run was completed and Swain moved to her present assignments with CBC.

Swain's work has been recognized at the New York festivals in the News Documentary category and won the annual media award from B'Nai Brith Canada for human rights reporting in 1991. Her work has twice been included in winning submissions for the Michener Award, Canada's award for meritorious public service in journalism.

Swain is a five-time Gemini nominee, recognized for her reporting, writing and hosting on CBC News programs. She won the Gemini for Best News Anchor in 2000.

Diana Swain and her family live in the Greater Toronto area.

Since, I'm short on pictures, I thought I would post 3 clips. This first one is a recent one,

This one is from a conference Diana was speaking at. The lack of eye makeup makes her look a little tired and beatty,

This last one looks to be about 10 years old. But it shows Diana in her formidable years,

Sorry for the lack of pics, but I will definitely post more if I find them,

I like this one just because it's kinda neat,

Michelle Caruso-Cabrera, 2 big reasons to watch Closing Bell

Alexis Glick, Another Reason to Watch FBN

Kirsten O'Brien Cleavage Queen of BBC

Last time I checked, the CBBC stands for Children's BBC in the UK. Kirsten O'Brien who hosts several kiddie shows on CBBC is like a cleavage machine. I knew Europeans are more liberal than we are over here, but man, they take it to a whole new level. You would think that with all that boobage, the kids would grow up subliminally thinking 'boobs' all the time.

Kirsten, can you lean over just a little bit more... just a little more... great, that's perfect. Hold it right there.

Is is cold in here, or are you just happy to see me?

Where there's a limo, there's a party. Satin, velvet, ankle bracelets, lets get it on...

Linda Stouffer Fills In for Robin

One news babe that I would like to see a whole lot more of is Linda Stouffer. She always dresses very conservatively and though she looks very classy and all that jazz, I wanna see what's underneath all that. I bet it's smokin' hot. She's been filling in for various desks the past couple of days which has given us more opps to see the very hot Linda Stouffer doing her thing...

Turtlenecks are kinda cool... for your aunt. Linda leaves a lot for the imagination, but guaranteed it's all good underneath. Linda fills in for Robin Meade today on Morning Express,

Here's Linda from yesterday, showing just a hint of her legs and in a double top,

Giada De Laurentiis on NBC's Today Show

A girlfriend of mine just loves Giada De Laurentiis, she has her book and watches her shows on the Food Channel all the time.

Though she was raised in Connecticut, moving to San Francisco was like coming home, because her entire family has been transplanted to the Bay Area over the last 20 years.

For Folsom, even at a young age there was no other career but journalism. She’d wanted to be a television reporter since she was five years old, when she would interview her little sister on a reel-to-reel tape recorder. If she didn’t spend so much time talking, Folsom might have become a classical musician.

She went on to major in broadcast journalism at the University of Kansas. After spending a year studying art history and political science in London, she graduated with honors from K.U. in 1987.

Folsom believes a TV career is perfect for her, having traveled throughout Europe, Russia, and Israel and being adept at landing in new places and learning the ropes. She started in Lawrence, Kansas as a reporter and quickly moved up the ranks in markets from Palm Springs, California, to Boise, Idaho, to Portland, Maine, to Phoenix, Arizona, where she anchored the evening newscasts at KNXV-TV. After that, Folsom was a morning anchor and investigative reporter at WTTG-TV in Washington, D.C., and finally moved to KRON 4. Folsom’s reporting has taken her 10,000 feet up to sky dive, to Guatemala to expose sweatshops, to Hollywood for the Oscars and to Chicago for the 1996 Democratic National Convention.

Folsom has won many awards, including two Emmy awards for best newscast, in Phoenix; a 2000 Emmy for serious feature reporting; four Emmy nominations for reporting; two Idaho Press Club awards, in 1990 and 1991; and the C. Everett Koop Media Award for health reporting in 1989.

Folsom has always enjoyed being involved her community. She has served on a state panel for people with disabilities and has done work for the Arthritis Foundation. She has been active with the Jewish Historical Society, the National Cancer Society, and the Alzheimer’s Association.
