Of course it's not about looks, or how would you explain Candy Crowley?
A couple days ago, a commenter asked out of the blue, "Who is the hottest local newsbabe?"
Not feeling qualified to venture an opinion (I couldn't even name more than one or two anyway), I thought maybe I'd put the admittedly somewhat sexist question to you, the loving public.
I thought maybe I'd put up a poll, but in trying to find the names of these fine professional women, I discovered that between the four local stations, there are TWENTY-THREE females working as anchors or reporters. (WHBF could field a baseball team with theirs.) So much for that idea.
So pick your three favorites from all the contestants and list them in comments (order is not important).
Once the field is narrowed to the three top vote getters, we can vote on your favorite from that group for the soon to be coveted Inside Dope Quad City Female News Personality of the Year Award. A traveling trophy will likely asume a prominent spot on the mantle of the grateful winner.
Here's a list of the women bringers of news (and in one case, sports) of the Quad Cities. You can see their pictures and bios by clicking on their names. Their bios reveal some impressive credentials and insight into the gypsy life of these news creatures.

After your careful consideration, list your three favorites in comments. Don't let these fine women down by not voting. This is no time for voter apathy!
Note: These are all I could find on the station's websites. If I've omitted any, please let me know.
