My Votes for NBC Newsreader

I am not sure why someone has to have journalist credentials to read from a teleprompter every night for 25 minutes.  I never watch the evening news -- haven't since I was a kid.  Honestly, I think the Huntley-Brinkley Report was the last network news I watched regularly, so that will give you some idea.  But I do hear it sometimes, because my wife still likes to watch and I hear it in the next room, or while I am having a glass of wine with her.

So I vote for a good voice, and since I am male I vote for a sexy female voice.  My two favorites were both Bond girls or one sort or another:

  • Lois Chiles (have no idea how she sounds today, but in Moonraker listening to her was absolutely the only reason to watch that movie)
  • Eva Green

Update:  If he were still alive, I would vote for John Facienda, preferably doing the news in verse

    For NBC its not about the news but about the narrative.

  • Sonar

    I vote for Matt Frewer as Max Headroom.

    I care more about the bias (mostly determined by editorial policy) than the presentation, which is why I'd rather watch The Blaze than any of the lamestream networks. Fox is next best, but not close.

    For best presentation, though, I'd have to give the nod to Cristina Mendonza of Sacramento's channel 10 (news10.net). She doesn't try to overdramatize/sensationalize the news; she just puts it across in plain English. I'd trade two of Katie Couric for her any day.

    LOL, me too, only because my Grandfather watched it regularly. I've NEVER watched TV news shows, far too much "LOOK! TODAY! (Tomorrow: Who cares?)" information....

    Ironically, Lois Chiles played a reporter in Broadcast News. Got sent to Alaska for messing with the producer's crush.

  • Dan Wendlick

    Maria Bamford, specifically the voice she uses for her Therapist in her act.
