  3. Gotta give "honorable mention" to Jon Kelley over at NBC Bay Area. I haven't been able to stand the guy since he was fledgling sports yahoo in Chicago, but I've seen him jogging shirtless along Chicago's lakefront. The guy is smokin'!

    Just sayin'.

    1. Check out the Marina after 2pm. He's still jogging. I agree, he's in shape.

  4. Rich! I know you don't care too much for Allen Martin but...come on! He wins as the Bay Area's hottest anchor. Good looking and quite charming.

    1. Dan is polished -- except for his hair-dying escapades. Really, Dan, either let it go gray or have it professionally done and maintained. As it is, it becomes entertainment, as in: What shade is it today?

  8. Ron Burgundy wipes the floor with all of them. Also, I think I threw up a little bit when i saw Raj on the list. We don't have to be politically correct here too do we?

  9. I am not gay but why are Mibach and Sasaki missing from the list? They seem hottish...The contest should be hottest Male tv newsman to broaden the possibilities. Hair plugs should count against a contestant: Ashley and Sommerville

    1. The only decent choice! I've seen him a couple of times around town. He's even better looking in person.

  11. None of the above.

    I vote for Marty Gonzales on KRON 4 weekend am news. The only great local program on KRON.
    Not only is he handsome, he is gracious and one of the good guys around town.

  12. Looks like most of these posts are dudes, I thought the ladies were supposed to be picking. man

  13. Rich, Rich, Rich. I think you might be talkin' to the wrong women folks here. At least ME. I don't look at professional guys doing their jobs as "hotties."

    Well, ok. George Clooney. Can I have lunch with HIM?

    ReplyDelete
  14. Hmmm, both winner and loser get to have lunch with you. Who's paying?

  15. My first choice was Bastida until he shaved his groovy stache and stopped perming his hair. Please put Raj in last place. Pretty slim pickings in the Bay Area. Thanks for giving us ladies an opportunity to be sexist, I was feeling a little left out during the hottest weather chick debate.

  16. Where are all the hot black & latino anchors? Oh wait...

    ReplyDelete
  17. How about none of the above?

  18. Think I'll pass on that group. How about Dennis Richmond in his heyday?

    1. Rumors are Dennis has the complete and total PACKAGE. He'd win if the contestants modeled in briefs

    2. WOW! Sexist AND Homophobic! Another 415 Media EXCLUSIVE! Pathetic.

  20. Rich, why not include your male readers in on the poll?

    ReplyDelete
  21. How about KRON's Jan Wahl, he's hot!

    ReplyDelete
  22. Jon Kelley, he hands down better looking than these guys, but if I had to choose one - Raj Mathai

    ReplyDelete
  23. My vote is for John Kelley.

  24. Hello Rich:
    Now that you've offered the "hottest" male anchors why
    haven't you given the audience one man's view of the the
    "most attractive" female anchors. You know, the list I
    sent you.
    Vicki Liviakis was crowned the "most attractive" with an
    interesting list in alphabetical order of many others. The
    list also named a "hall of fame" which included Sydney
    Kohara.
    Come on Rich let's provide the audience what they want. I bet
    you'll see a hissy fight from those anchors left off.
