Well-Dressed Newscasters, Weather Forecasters, TV Hosts and Hostesses...And Some Not So Well-Dressed
I watch WNBC for local news mainly, and I''ve noticed that they have the best-dressed newscasters et al. Janice Huff, the Weather Forecaster, is the best-dressed of the lot. she has a flair for what looks good on her. Raphael Miranda (a new crush) dresses well, too.\
The hosts of the morning shows on the networks look good too...with the exception of Meredith Viera and George Stephanopoulos. she looks frumpy at times. And he looks like a little boy whenever he dresses down.\
How much of a clothing allowance do TV newscasters et al get? I imagine that on the local level not much at all.

Janice Huff has put on a lot of weight over the years, but I agree, she always dresses well. \
There''s a woman who does weather on the FoxNY morning show who dresses horrible. She wears very low cut tops, and occassionally what would be considered a cocktail dress.
Chris Wragge always looks hot, especially when he dresses down on the Sat. show.
Brian Williams on NBC and Harry Smith on CBS Early Show
No longer on, but Reid Lamberty always looked so classy when he was on the FOX morning news.
Lee Goldberg dresses really well - great color coordination, always a pocket square accent. It''s too bad he''s such a little man - he must get his clothes custom-made, ''cause no little boys'' department would carry such stylish duds.
Chris Wragge bugs the shit out of me and I cannot really figure out why.
R6, because he is smug!

Because he''s a hot top fucking Lonnie Quinn?
Lonnie Quinn is another munchkin.\
I stood next to him at an event and thought someone had washed him in hot water without reading the label.
I think TV newscasters (female) should be dressed decently which shows professionalism. Business suits, not party dresses showing their cleavage, short tight skirts, etc. An outfit that commands respect and credibility is more appropriate. Thank you.
Maybe I missed the thread when the story first happened, but was the John Bolaris (Philly weatherman who was scammed by Russian chicks in Miami) story ever covered on DL?
No R12 - we don't care about hetero newspeople here. There are plenty of gay ones to obsess about, and those we think are gay (like Wragge).
Blatant heteros get enough coverage elsewhere.
I also am crushing on Raphael Miranda, a hot papi who's partnered and OUT...

We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
