Beauty and brains. That’s what these news reporters stand for. We watch them all the time and we wonder if they know how attractive they are. Some of them might be aware but they figured they had more to offer than their looks. In other cases, they knew that their physical features would give them a small boost in their career field because that’s just how the industry works sometimes.
