Houston's Top Ten Female TV Reporters, Based On A Highly Scientific And Professional System

Categories: Spaced City

Our own Miss Pop Rocks wrote an entry some time ago about the Secret Lives of Houston's Hottest Male Newscasters, which seemed...incomplete to me somehow.

I wasn't sure of the exact problem until she followed it up with the admission of her crush on KPRC's Jennifer Reyna, then I realized that by not putting out a list of Houston's hottest female news personalities, Hair Balls has been horribly remiss in its service to the community.

Here then, mostly in no particular order, are the ten lovely network lasses who do their best to distract us from endless tales of child abuse, jack-knifed 18-wheelers, and drug-related murder. (They are all, of course, hard-working professional women who should not be sexualized, just as Hottest Male Newscasters shouldn't.)

AndreaNguyen1-thumb-185x259.jpg
10. Andrea Nguyen -- Reporter/Anchor, KIAH (CW 39)
Nguyen's story (she arrived in Houston a five-year-old Vietnamese boat refugee and learned English from country music) is such a quintessential example of the American Dream that it makes you feel guilty for squandering the benefits of your own relatively privileged upbringing by writing snotty blog entries. Then again, she is on that network that airs Gossip Girl and endless Two And a Half Men reruns. Guess that Horatio Alger spirit only gets you so far.

JenniferReyna2-thumb-200x300.jpg
9. Jennifer Reyna -- Reporter, KPRC (NBC 2)
Whether doing the traffic on KPRC can be considered a step up from KLOL's "Outlaw Dave Show" for the former "Miss Rockwear" is a question only she can answer.

All we know is that by throwing Reyna in to do the morning traffic with anchor Lauren Freeman, KPRC is doing its best to...stack the deck against their competitors.

8. Gina Gaston -- Anchor, KTRK (ABC 13)
When Dave Ward, Ed Brandon, and Bob Allen were all still together on Channel 13's evening newscasts, Gaston was a refreshing addition to a studio swimming in high blood pressure meds and Grecian Formula. The age and gender balance has evened out a bit, but Gaston still holds her on alongside the well-preserved Ward.

And she's married to former Rocket Mario Elie. I don't know what that has to do with anything, but I love "Super Mario."

LucyNoland1-thumb-200x300.jpg
7. Lucy Noland -- Anchor, KHOU (CBS 11)
I'm not sure how she does it (though I have my suspicions), but KHOU's evening new anchor looks better than most news personalities half her age, male or female.

She and strapping co-anchor Greg Hurst are like the Brad and Angelina of Houston's airwaves, only with fewer tattoos and babies, and slightly more simmering sexual intensity.

CaseyCurry1-thumb-200x249.jpg
6. Casey Curry -- Weather, KTRK (ABC 13)
Forecasting the weather in Houston is a thankless job; we're either bitching about the lack of rain (as we have for the last few weeks) or freaking out because a hurricane is lurking offshore.

Curry hasn't completely relaxed in her role as the sole female meteorologist among Houston's TV affiliates, but the phrase "dangerous drought conditions" sounded even less appetizing when Ed Brandon was saying it.

MelindaSpaulding1-thumb-200x240.jpg
5. Melinda Spaulding -- Anchor, KRIV (Fox 26)
Fox News' strategy of using a pretty face to disguise the fact that its "fair and balanced" news coverage is actually neoconservative bilge is a tactic as old as the network itself, as anyone familiar with the names Courtney Friel and Megyn Kelly will tell you. We may never know whether the anchors delivering the BS posess great intestinal fortitude or are willing participants in the charade, so we'll just have to give Spaulding the benefit of the doubt.

4. Cynthia Cisneros -- Reporter, KTRK (ABC 13)
You heard me. Unlike many stations, KTRK isn't shy about holding on to their female on-air talent even after they start sprouting a few gray hairs or wrinkles (hey there, Deborah Wrigley). And unlike many on this list, Cisneros is a native Houstonian (and former Houston Press Best of Houston winner to boot) whose local roots serve her well as reporter. And as a fellow silver fox, I can say she's totally hot with gray hair.

MelanieWilson1-thumb-200x300.jpg
3. Melissa Wilson -- Anchor, KRIV (Fox 26)
On her KRIV bio page, Wilson says she enjoys skydiving and reading, and that her favorite activity is doing everything with her husband and two children. Hopefully she leaves the kids at home when jumping out of planes.

She hails from the DFW area, but we don't hold it against her (much) since she looks a lot like Law and Order: SVU's Mariska Hargitay.

Thumbnail image for JessicaWilley1.jpg
2. Jessica Willey -- Reporter/Anchor, KTRK (ABC 13)
I first became aware of the Channel 13 reporter several years back when the network, in its wisdom, decided to send Willey to Galveston to cover the arrival of a tropical storm. On a pier. In a white blouse. It was a bold strategy, and one that I imagine raised more than flash flood warnings around town. Since then, Willey has proven herself a capable reporter and part-time anchor, though one can still see the looming dread in her eyes whenever mention is made of another system brewing in the Gulf.

DaniellaGuzman1.jpg
1. Daniella Guzmán -- Reporter, KPRC (NBC 2) You may prefer the icy Nordic exterior of a Lauren Freeman, or the amazing reverse-aging Dominique Sachse, but both pale (you'll pardon the expression) next to Houston's own Guzmán.

I understand she's busy, what with reporting on the Gallery Furniture fire and updating us on the status of Galveston's Tremont Hotel, so it's perfectly understandable that she hasn't gotten around to cracking the JFK assassination yet.

Skip all the other channels and just do KPRC.  Your list is stupid.

Are you crazy?  What about Sharron Melton who knows how to deliver the news? When it's a tragedy she shows empathy.  However, she is smart, intelligent, yet funny.  It's a pleasure watching her with the crew.  News is always boring and stressful.  I always encourage those who stop watching the news to watch Channel 13 morning news starting at 5:30.

watched channel 2 and saw Jennifer Reyna and haven't stopped watching. She is smokin hot, the need to replace that dull blonde in the morning and make Mrs. Reyna yhe regular everyday anchor for the show.

So if FOX NEWS is actually neoconservative bilge where would that put the likes of ABC/NBC/CBS/PBS? Neoliberal bilge, of course. But then no-one here has the courage to "tell it like it is."

Cynthia Cisneros is awful easy on the eyes.  But I watch the news just to see Lisa Hernandez, Chita Johnson, and Casey Curry.

Casey Curry is divine.  I live her curves.  But Chita Johnson is the one who really gets me going.  Is she all natural?

This is pure nonsense. All of these ladies are great and some nof the best are obviously missing. Why would a gentlemen or Gentlewomen would pass judgments on another person like this anyway? It is mean and condescending. I love all of you beautiful ladies including the ones that are not on this list.. I say all judgment is with God.

Casey Curry needs a makeover very badly. Her clothes are out of date and her hair is a greasy looking stringy mess. In other words, she is an eyesore.

I get so tired of the men in this city that are too dumb to realize that all these women look like shit without makeup!!!

I get so tired of hearing the women of this city blast the good looks of the Channel 2 bombshells because they're not "en mode" according to the Euro beauty standards pushed by all the fashion magazines. Here in Texas curves and big hair are the provincial preference of the men in this fair city, not all of whom are uneducated petrochemical workers pitching tents in their flame retardant coveralls.

That being said, I've been trying to lobby the station to organize a reverse gangbang with Jennifer Reyna, Mariza Reyes, Dominique and Daniella Guzman for my b-day. Still awaiting the reply.

Oh yow,....it was so relaxing one weekday morning when Casey Curry put a large pickle in her mouth and sucked on it while slowly pulling it out!! This is one hot babe! Case closed!!

My only questions,.....Who are the lucky so-and-sos in Lucy Noland & Casey Curry's lives? I assume Lucy is single,....when Casey hired on with KTRK, she had a ring on, then it vanished quite a while ago!?!/

You people are confused,...age(40's) & experience are '#1'!.

I am so glad you put Danielle Guzman as #1, because I agree with ya.

Although here are some things I don't agree, why isn't Ilona Carson on your list, and why isn't Casey Curry in the top 3? Plus Lucy Noland doesn't deserve her spot, she should be #2.

Greg

OMFG! You must be blind! The only one that even matters (Dominique Sachse) is not even on the list... What's up with that? Not only is she not on the list, but if you had a good pair of eyes, you would know she should top the list at #1. How could you have missed that? Bad form.

Gina Gaston .. Mia Gradney .. Sharron Melton. Tom Koch (KTRK-13) likes his coffee like he likes his co-anchors.

Channel 13 is blessed. They have the greatest concentration of beautiful news babes in the city of Houston.

Mia Gradney is visually and intellectually the most pleasing news person on the air here in Houston (in the Lucy Nolan genre).

Go Houston

WHAT!?!?! WHY ON EARTH IS LUCY NOLAND NOT #1ON YOUR STUPID LIST!?!??!!

that's ok. the Houston Press has always beena bit of a college...no no...a high school rag consisting of writers who don't now how to spell properly....know*...anyway...you guys need to learn that beauty is not exclusive to the outside, she is the most beautiful woman inside & out...and your paper will soon be going out of business due to your inaccurate list.

by the way, i'm hoping you guys give me a good review for 'worst debut album ever'...when i submit it to ya.
