Everyone has their own opinion of what is considered sexy. Some people believe that it is all about looks, while others consider personality to be a contributing factor. These are ten news anchors that take sexiness to a whole new level. Some of these people are trend-setters, and while most of them are incredibly smart; they all have that special “je ne sais quoi” when it relates to the public eye. These news anchors are televised nationally, and the majority of them have been on the air for many years, each of them gaining a fairly large fan base, and most are even becoming more popular than their predecessors.
