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
