The Bay Area's Hottest Women TV News Anchors


Jessica Aguirre KNTV

Justine Waldman KRON

Julie Haener KTVU



Dana King KPIX











Carolyn Johnson KGO-TV



These are very talented newswomen anchors who happen to be striking hot. Ask anybody out there on the streets of San Francisco.

My 1 and 1A are Dana King of KPIX and Carolyn Johnson of KGO-TV. Both give a very heady, solid, straight, no-nonsense delivery with just the right amount of flair, humor, and emotion.

Most especially King, who at 50, bucks the trend of modern local TV anchorwomen who seem to look as if they just graduated college. King is getting better with time.

I like Waldman's confident presentation and professional demeanor; ditto the very capable and visually-adept, Johnson. No need for chatty discourse, just good old-fashioned delivery.

Jessica Aguirre has always impressed me since her days at KGO--she's now just as splendid as ever at NBC Bay Area. And Julie Haener is just too darn perfect at KTVU.

There's no doubt some women, (and men too), might be offended at this post. Why? TV is a visual medium. Pretty women anchors, (and capable too) are not grounds for a crime. We look for looks sake. I do. So do you.

Who do you like?

    Dana King looks like Underdog's girlfriend, Aguirre messed up her face with plastic surgery-Do Not Want

    1. Without a doubt, the totally HOTTEST REPORTER out there, is a comparatively new one. She started a few weeks ago at KPIX and her name is Cate Cauguiran. She is like, TOTALLY HOT, but besides that, she is an EXCELLENT news reader who is very smooth in her delivery, as well as her skin. Yumm!

    2. Agree about Aguirre. The plastic surgery is bad. She was so pretty before the joker lips. I just don't understand women who do this to themselves. The weather women is where the real beauty resides. Orozco on Ktvu, Bennett on Kron...that's just for starters...

  3. Julie Haener is HOT, Jessica - what's wrong with those lips...eeew.

    ReplyDelete
  4. Ladies, please!! No botox, no lip injections, no plastic surgeries, no boob jobs. Just some light makeup and a nice suit and you're good to go for 40 years or more. Natural, confident, and healthy looking beauty trumps all.

  5. Carolyn Johnson - Brains AND beauty!

  6. I agree, Aguirre face is messed up. Seen her a few times in person, not so great. Very good anchor though.
    I like Darya. She does it for me. Her face can look weird sometimes but her body is bangin' for her age.

    ReplyDelete
  7. Dana King is hot in so many ways as to be uncountable. Smart as a whip, rapier wit, professional artist... What a woman...

  8. My personal favorite isn't on the friggin' list, Rich. I think Gary Radnich, with his cherry cheeks, is so hot that I can hardly sit on my couch and not do something like throw a football through my TV screen.

    ReplyDelete
  9. One wonders if Darya Folsom will send one of the $10/hr flunkies to bang out something to you asking why she's not on the list. Do you notice that she doesn't even recognize Justine Waldman in the AM. There's a bit of animosity there, eh? Just a tad. Come on flunkies, do your duty...

  10. Gasia Mikaelian does a good job of reading the news and looks very nice doing it. Very exotic looking and I like the fact that she stuck with what I presume is her actual name as opposed to changing it to something easier to pronounce...like Gasia Michaels.

    1. Big fan of Gasia's as well. One of the prettiest women on TV around here,and does a good job reading the news as far as I'm concerned.

    2. Gasia Mikaelian on KTVU has it all: the hair, the face, the fashion sense, the voice, and the diction.

    1. You're absolutely correct. Ann Notorangelo is attractive in a certain way. Let's put her in The Best Of The Rest.

  12. Tara Moriarty on KTVU, with all that gorgeous red hair . . . Elizabeth Cook on KPIX . . . Karina Rusk on KGO . . . mmmmmmmmm . . .

    ReplyDelete
  13. I don't get the aesthetic appreciation for Aguirre or King. Nothing going on there for me. Someone mentioned Heather Holmes; I don't get the like there, she's got kind of a clown thing going on too.

    I agree with the post about Gasia, she's very easy on the eyes, and reads the news well too. I also enjoy Julie Haener.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Michelle Greigco on KPIX..big luscious lips. She speaks a little slow..like a hippy dippy anchor woman. She and ch3's Laura Garcia Cannon like to flirt with the camera. Teases-I like that. Marla Tellez..and of course Sophia Loren..oops I mean Christina Loren. The same Italian hotness. KNTV has more then its share..
    Erica Kato..and blond bombshell Jacqueline Bennet.
    You could lock me in a room with Darya..and if she tears my clothes off ,she tears my clothes off. I can't help her urges.
    Heather Holmes is the perfect Aryan blond trophy..cool as ice. High maintenance I bet.
    Grace Lee is Asian hot sauce..but you better be a Surgeon or Lawyer to get within arms length!
    And you know what? The odds alone say so many highly attractive woman-ONE has to be a kinky nympho. WHICH ONE????

    Replies
    1. Nice that Erica Kato is getting some exposure. She's definitely grown on me. And it appears Darya Folsom has been taking Erica shopping, with all those tight outfits she wears now.

      Delete
  15. And I notice...the lack of busty black woman. I read long ago some news director saying that large breasted black woman were "Too sexual" for mid America types. KRON's anchors favor plunging necklines..but I bet if Caroline Tyler were there...that buttoned up to the neck would be her look still.
    I cant remember EVER seeing black woman with large breasts and cleavage doing local news...I can name..plenty of woman though who do or did.

  16. The only local news anchor who's got the "it" factor and looks better than most gals half her age is KRON's Vicki Liviakis.

    1. I agree 100 percent. Vicki Liviakis is truly the total package.

  17. Well, she's not an anchor, but what about Jade Hernandez.

    1. Hottest Latina in the market... Hands down!

  18. I can see how some people find Liviakus hot but her nose is a deal breaker for me. I did get hot under the collar a couple of years ago when she was reporting during a KRON New Years eve special. She had a couple of glasses of sparkling wine, she was relaxed and having a blast. Definitely made me look past the nose

    1. There is nothing wrong with her nose except some sun damage like many women her age. She’s a babe. She looks great in that Mercedes commercial.

  20. The list of hot females can not be complete without the name of Claudine Wong. She has the 100% combination. She looks good, plus she is intelligent.

    1. I agree, but she seems way more of an ice queen that H. Holmes of the same station, who someone mentioned. (though I'd rather be with Claudine than Heather.

    2. True but she has to smile.

    3. @ True but she has to smile.

      Claudine has a very pretty smile. When she reads the news, you can believe her. No one smiles when they are giving bad news. When there is happy time, there is not another female who can beat her smile.

    4. Good point.

  21. I used to like Jessica Aguirre when she first started at KGO TV. She seemed so easy and natural. Then after awhile, her voice got very nasally and I couldn't stand listening to her. Maybe the plastic surgery ruined her voice???

    ReplyDelete
  22. Hello All:
    First thing I'd like to say is that the term "hot" is a term that is somewhat demeaning and certainly too subjective. I prefer to use the term "attactive" because it brings in more qualities than "big hair" and youthfulness.
    Second we're talking anchors here, not reporters, weather persons production assistants, etc. So let's keep on point. As Allen Iverson would say "we're talkin anchors"

    I'd like to offer my suggestions:

    The Most Attractive - Vicki Liviakis is the total package!

  24. I argue not or contend with any of the comments here. But since we're all friends here (am I right? huh?) here's my two cents's worth:

    KRON's Terry Lowry was the one who had me hot and bothered when I was a teenager.

    KPIX's Marilee Beck ran a very distant second.

  26. Never understand the Darya lusting...she has the voice of a hungover Axl Rose with the physique of beef jerky with a cocaine problem.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Thank you, Rich, for the Aguirre opinion correction. I always found her solid, too, to tell you the truth. Gotta catch up on Waldman. I highly admire the rest of your list. Johnson also very likable.

    And sorry, 9:23, that Folsom sounds like a hungover version of the worst singer ever inducted into the Rock Hall. Very glad that the Rock Hall honored the GnR-ers that made that band happen, especially Slash, and didn't miss the space helmet-sounding ugly Rose. Hope Folsom never dawns a helmet.

  31. Hello Everyone:
    Why are there so many Darya Folsom "haters" our there? I'm wondering if there is a vvery strong sense of jealousy out there.
    Let's face it no one has a body like hers. Tell me who on
    any channel has ever belted out a few bars from the "Lion King"?
    Bold and spontaneous in other words not scripted. The nasal voice is unique and quite sultry.
    Come on haters you know you love her.

  34. Justine? I still laugh-outloud- thinking of that newscast where she read off a prompter that Sen." X" had sent photos of "his package" to woman..LOL. You KNOW the next commercial break she took her shoe off and beat the tar out of the intern writer who wrote that copy!
    Oh man,That was 100times funnier than any fire alarm going off while the newscast is on blooper.

  35. Forgot about Marla Tellez. I remember the remote she did when that fellow went wacko and killed his coworkers down in Sunnyvale. She looked totally hot, in the field with no makeup and a hat on; she is mesmerizing in the mornings on NBC Bay Area.

    And Claudine Wong is a cutie, but she needs to smile more and sometimes sounds bored when she's doing a remote. "Good morning, Dave . . ."

    1. Claudine is like a throw back to the 60's..when anchors never smiled. Only,back then Asians could never do TV news as anchors.
      And..she has a Chinese name..but her nose with flared nostrils and her dark complexion says something else.

  45. Robin Winston! Black is beautiful, and not found much in news anchors or weather casters.

    She's beautiful, smart, and classy.

    Actually, she is too classy for KRON.

    Replies
    1. I like Robin too- but she simply HAS to stop saying, "allow some extra time" for every incident on which she reports. It's stupid, of no value and irritating once you hear it every single time. Better she gave alternate routes- not that would be helpful and show she has a clue about the bay area...
