View Full Version : Who is the foxiest newscaster?

Bet you don't have one foxier than Karen Borta . . .


Too bad she works for The Eye Of Satan :(

16th Nov 2007, 13:38
There's a few on Naked News, but I don't know what their faces look like......:hmm:

16th Nov 2007, 13:45
Angela Rippon, especially when she showed her legs all the way to the top (now surely there's a pic of that somewhere on the internet?)

I'll concede that point, Flip Flop, though I will say that Google found some rather better pictures... I just didn't think they'd be suitable.:O

16th Nov 2007, 15:23
I came looking for pictures of just one.

Flip Flop Flyer did the needful (and muppetofthenorth tried his damndest). I will depart satisfied.


16th Nov 2007, 15:34
Noone's mentioned Basil Brush (http://www.bbc.co.uk/cult/classic/basilbrush/realmedia/basilbrushjoke.ram) yet?! :confused:

(sorry, couldn't find any newcasting clips online)

16th Nov 2007, 15:45
Look at the topless photos mentioned earlier, and she's just another pretty girl with small tits. The imagination is crucial.

This is without even broaching the subject of why talking heads have to be beautiful to get a job, but that's another topic, isn't it?

16th Nov 2007, 17:22
Natasha Kaplinski (I think thats how you spell it)

Not to those who were breast fed! Or is the other way round?;)

I have checked out the said photo's purely for my own gratif..., sorry I mean research! And I would say she is one very, very, attractive woman who is built in proportion, large breasts would look out of place! Is she smart too? Or only capable of reading an autocue? :rolleyes:

Anyway back to my research...:ok:

PS: I am surprised Bino's hasn't put up a picture of Maxine McKew...:E

Well, if the girls can join in, I'd go for Dermot Murnaghan!


And as a Radio 4 sort of gal, I love Brian's Perkins' voice but I won't post a picture - shatter my illusions.

16th Nov 2007, 23:13
Whilrygig - you really don't want to see a picture of Brian Perkins. Although if we widen the thread to include weather forecasters, then my call goes to one Mr Hammond of the Met Office... cor, tasty!!

16th Nov 2007, 23:17
Nobody mentions Millie Clode? http://www.lazygirls.info/people/millie_clode/millie_clode_0404141141_25_Lf3w2ZW.sized.jpg

Not that I ever liked Kate Silverton, but this morning she earned my eternal enmity for using the word 'invite' as a noun, instead of 'invitation'.


19th Nov 2007, 18:26
Essex girl Silverton is no muppet - Behind her big superficial smile she can be a really aggressive, manipulative monster who always gets what she wants.

Penny is (dare I say?) perhaps not as foxy as she once was, and to be honest most things that come out of GMTV are a disappointment anyway.

Alycia Lane may be a a bit of a stretch!

But she does have an interesting story:

A foxy Philly anchorwoman - who once e-mailed sexy swimsuit snaps to a married TV talking head - became an anger woman today, calling a female cop a "dyke bitch" and slugging her in the face, law-enforcement sources said.

And a good picture:

I had the pleasure of staying in a hotel with Isla Traquair a few years ago. Let me rephrase that. I stayed in the same hotel at the same time as Isla Traquair.
