Women have been making headlines for many years, but it seems that they’re reading the headlines more and more these days too. We’ve decided to take a closer look at some of the top 10 hottest women news anchors.
1 – Jenna Lee
Let’s get things kick-started with the beautiful Jenna Lee, a 37-year-old journalist from New York City. Not just a journalist, Jenna also had a former anchor spot on the Fox News Channel, but it was actually freelance writing for Forbes that got things rolling. Using her experience, she attempted to get in front of the camera, and that’s just what she achieved too, being picked up by the Fox Business Network. It was in 2010 that she left the channel, hopping over to Fox News Channel, and that’s where she stayed, taking on various roles until she announced that she was leaving to do other things in June of 2017.
2 – Robin Meade
A star that has made multiple names for herself, across multiple industries, 48-year-old Robin Meade was born in New London in Ohio, and actually started her career as a model, not a news anchor. It was back in 1992 that she was crowned Miss Ohio, and it was in that state that her broadcasting career was taken to the next level. She was a reporter, and then an anchor, and she even covered the 1996 Olympics with the NBC affiliate, WMAQ-TV. From that came a book, joined HLN, which was known as CNN Headline News at the time, became a host on Oprah Winfrey’s Ask Oprah’s All Stars, and even went on to have a successful country music career. Impressive? We think so!
3 – Alex Wagner

She’s also a political commentator with liberal views, and was even the White House Correspondent for a spell, working with AOL News, and then The Huffington Post (after AOL snapped it up). You will currently see her working on This Morning Saturday on CBS.
4 – Tamron Hall
Tamron Hall is very well known in the news industry, born in Texas and then attending Temple University to get a bachelor’s degree in the field of broadcast journalism. She’s had some pretty impressive specials to sink her teeth into over the years, and recent works include coverage of the University of Texas at Austin shooting, with the 50th-anniversary commemorative show, Guns on Campus: Tamron Hall Investigates. Her work with crime stems from her very personal experiences with domestic violence. Although never accused, it was alleged that her sister’s partner had murdered her sibling, spurring her on.
