The news can be boring. Stuff happens, more stuff happens and the world keeps on spinning. Lucky for us, most news networks are aware of how hard it is to hold people’s attention for more than a few minutes at a time. Hence the healthy abundance of gorgeous news anchors and correspondents roaming the airwaves, some practically becoming current-events sex symbols in the process. Prime example: CNN’s newest host, Erin Burnett (see photo above). Here’s a roundup of television’s hottest news anchors. Enjoy.
