Business Insider must be published in Colorado. They had to be high to have assembled their bootleg list of “Sexiest TV Journalists.” They could have saved themselves some time and ignored the subject altogether, because smokeshow journos is kind of my beat.
BI’s list had some bright spots that I heartily agree with, but don’t waste your time browsing their scrub list. You can find the definitive list right here.
No rankings here folks: all of these journalists are the real deal.
ABC’s Lara Spencer
Lara is my go-to for entertainment news. She should be yours too.

CNBC’s Stock Smoke is one of a kind.
