News channels have undergone a huge amount of change during the last number of years. Some news programs have gone on to changing their formats, look and have introduced more appealing, intelligent and witty news presenters to acheive more viewership and garner more revenues. The conventional weather girl from the news channels has always conjured up the image of a very beautiful, attractive and sensual woman delivering the weather report. Naked News has taken this aspect of sensuality one step further and it has naked women doling out the weather report!
Naked News calls itself a program which has “nothing to hide”. This web subscription program features a complete and full television newscast. This program is arranged in Toronto and it is aired daily each episode being of twenty five minutes. The highlight in this show is that the male or female anchors either read the news completely naked or they strip while they read their specified segments, such as weather, sports, entertainment, current affairs etc. It’s been noted that regardless of this news presenters gender, the viewership of Naked News remains predominantly male.
Naked News made its debut in 2000 as a subscription based web news service that boasted of an all female cast. The very first anchor of Naked News was Victoria Sinclair who, during those times was the sole anchor for that show and presented all the segments including weather, sports, entertainment etc. Since the show became popular, the numbers of anchors increased and presently includes eight female presenters and additionally have guest anchors featuring at the same time. Devoid of marketing gimmick or strategy, this web site shot to popularity only through word of mouth, soon becoming a frequented web destination.
This website received almost six million hits in a month during its initial days. An enormous contributor to its popularity was its free viewership since the site was supported entirely by advertising. Post 2002, only one of the news segments could be seen totally free and after 2004, the site became a paid one. Again in 2008 two segments of the show can be viewed for free.
Naked News launched Naked New Japan in 2006, in association with eGalaxy and Sunrise Corp. eGalaxy was the owner of Naked News and Sunrise Corp was a seller of services and goods over the internet. Naked News Japans presenters do not strip completely, because of the stringent broadcasting norms of the nation. However, the producers hope that they’ll be able to show more down the road. The Naked News expansion mode continued with the launch of Naked News Italia in 2008.
