The Best TV News Anchor --- Who Do You Think?

Sat Jun 02, 2001 7:10 am

Who is the best?

Who do you watch most?

I'd vote for ANY of the excellent CNN Headline News anchors. All are very good.

One of CNN's best just left them.....Lynne Russell. Good luck, Lynne!!

While all of them are leftist scum, of the big three I'd say Tom Brokaw is the best. I just see the whole NBC operation as more professional than the others. I will only watch NBC (of ABC, NBC, & CBS)... I don't watch the CNN crap.

Dan Rather, he puts everything so simply:

"Hillary Clinton's brother, Former President Bill Clinton's brother in-law..."

That right there saved me about 3 hours of research, thanks Dan!

Kronkite = Cronkite!!  Smile/happy/getting dizzy  Big thumbs up

I agree....Cronkite was the best of ALL TIME!!

"And that's the way it is.....Friday, March 6th, 1981.....Walter Cronkite, CBS News, Good Night...."

That was Walter's last day as anchor......  Crying

I like Bill O'Reilly, if he can be considered a news anchor. Otherwise I like the whole Fox News Channel team.

The fox news tean isn't com-plete witout Bill O' Reilly, and Paula Zahn, I like Tom Brokaw and Walter Kronkite I've been watching Brokaw since I was 5. World News wouldn't be the same without him. Brian Williams is catching up.

I gotta go with Peter Jennings or Matt Lauer. In my mind, the most energetic would be Katie Couric.

Best Anchor: Peter Jennings.

Best Political interviewer: Sam Donaldson, and that NBC Sunday Morning guy  Confused

Best field reporter: Christiane Amanpour. Finest field reporting since the good-old-days of the BBC.

Best investigative reporter: 60 Minutes' Wallace. He will be missed.

Worst 'investigative' reporter: that guy that thought he was opening Al Capone's secret vault.  Confused

Most overrated TV news personality: Barbra Walters. HANG IT UP LADY. SPARE US THE AGONY.  Pissed

I like the woman that does the "ITN World News for Public Television", she's got a real indian sounding name, but a british accent.

I like FoxNews too, they seem to resist the "leftist crap" (as one friend here calls it).

For Local TV in Detroit,

Fmr. NBC White House Correspondent, now working for Local 4 (WDIV - www.clickondetroit.com)


Or,
The first woman in the US to anchor a local newscast for a network affiliate, now at Channel 7 (WXYZ - www.detnow.com) Robbie Timmons.

Jon Stewart...does he count? The regular news programs suck, I end up reading that stuff in the paper the next day, and I like Comedy Central, thus the perfect fit..."The Daily Show"

God, i cannot stand Barbara Walters' voice. John Stossel is pretty good also. I like his stories on 20/20. Also, when I meant that Katie Couric was the most energetic, in no was I trying to insult her. She is a pretty good anchor also.

Errr....think you're all forgetting My Two Cent's Kent Brockman.

For the UK people.......How about Huw 'I love Wales' Edwards.

But for all out suave coolness, you can't beat ITV's John Suchet.

How about big Trev, I reckon he should stick to the news, and none of his investigative journo stuff. You're big, but not that big, mate....

And finally.........

What about Hugh Downs? Maybe the man with the bad toupee, Ted Koppel.

Blink 182 hit it on the head; I can't stand Barbara Walter's voice; the self-importance air about her.

When I watch an interview, I wanna see and hear the interviewee and less of the interviewer.

I don't get that on Walters' interviews. Now, I just switch channels when she's on.

Canadian Peter Jennings of ABC news. Best Anchor

Christiane Amantour (sp?) Best field reporter

Jessica Savage. Who could have had it all...

Lynn Russell. Another best anchor...who had the best sence of humor on camera....who had the best smile...who was probably the best party girl anchor...who I loved almost as much as my little Egyptian wife. I wish Lynn the very, very Best.

Joe Moore of KHON (Fox 2) in Honolulu, Hawaii. I like his simple, straightforward delivery style, and his occasional side comments and jokes are something to look forward to.

In DFW, Dale Hansen, sports guy for WFAA TV (ABC's DFW affiliate). Actually, the entire WFAA team, with the exception of Macey Jepson is pretty damn good.

I think that the best news magazine anchor is Charles Osgood of 'Sunday Morning' on CBS News.



For political and debate related television shows, I always have to go with John McLaughlin of the PBS programme 'McLaughlin Group.' How that guy got his job totally escapes me, but I enjoy watching.

Christian Amanpour (a reporter for CNN ) is very good.

Best TV news anchor would be Tom Brokaw.

I have two. One is a news anchor, and the other is a weatherman. Bill Martin is my favorite news anchor. And Dick Goddard is my favorite weatherman. They are both on Fox 8 here in Cleveland.
