Vote for the Hottest Reporter in Jackson

It's that time of year.  Vote in the Hottest Reporter Poll.  Pretend you live in Ward 3. Vote early and often. No qualifications or ID are required to vote here.   Seriously, all of these reporters are underpaid and overworked. They work long hours, take alot of abuse from those they cover, especially from politicians. Most of them are fresh out of school, scrapping and learning their trade, hoping they can improve enough to move on to a bigger market. It's a tough job and if anything, they are under appreciated.  They get hate mail, cussed out by politicians, and go to areas that most people would avoid all while doing it with a smile.   All images were culled from  their employer's websites, Google images, and public Facebook pages. Oh, and be nice in the comments.  That includes Johnny Weir.

Note: Two reporters were accidentally omitted so the poll was reset with their names included.

[And] yet the prudes read and comment. Run along now killjoys or you'll be late for MamaDonner's bedtime story about her halycon days once young but not influential.

Y'all be nice to Marsha. While she may not be the hottest in this group, she holds her own against those that are more than half her age. I can tell you that when she was the age of others in this poll she was HOT! Not only that, but she could tear up the foosball tables at The Recovery Room.

Why are we judging reporters by their physical appearance rather than the quality of their reporting? Having just suffered through an election where the media chased flash over susbstance while the public consumed fake news, you feel it is appropriate to judge local reporting as one would judge a swimsuit contest?

I spent a ton of money at The Recovery Room. Never could figure out why it went out of business. It was always packed. There was another place in the Quarter on Lakeland 2 floor nite club. Can't think of the name. Someone help me here. It wasn't TGIF Friday. To get back on tread.

Megan West is the best. She is a wonderful broadcaster.
She can talk really insanely fast & you can still understand her.

MARIE EDINGER FROM WLBT. UP AND COMING GREAT REPORTER AND "HOT"

This is absurd. Why single out women? Are you planning a similar contest for male stud-muffin reporters?

@Johnny Weir

Adrian's, a disco club, was in the Quarter and was two story. It was on the front west corner. It had a fantastic sound system for the time. Caribbean Queen sounded great blasting out of it.

@Johnny Weir, my dad bar tended there when he retired from the railroad. it was such a cool hole in the wall bar!

There's a woman doing the news on Supertalk who has the deepest voice but I've not seen a photo of her.

Anyway Anyhow Allie Ware The News.

You may have forgotten that Larita's first election to the City Council was tainted by voter fraud. Case went to court and another election was conducted.

Anonymous said...

10:18, maybe you are remembering before TV. No one cared what a person looked like when there was only radio. Since the invention of the TV looks count.

Anonymous said...

Ashley ShahAhmadi no contest

Anonymous said...

Could we please add Julia Weiden and Cheryl Lasseter? Otherwise I will vote for Anna Wolfe; she's not only attractive, she's the best journalist in the group.

I still vividly remember first seeing Marsha Halford in person, standing near the bar at POETS in the mid-seventies. She was a show stopper in the highest.

Remember the day when you could complement a woman's appearance and not offend anyone?

No on is discrediting their professional skills by commenting on how they may appear. Quite the opposite. It's a testament to these woman that they can maintain a solid career WHILE still caring about themselves outwardly. Let's not forget, a well kept physical appearance is also a sign of good health.

These women wake up every day, and put effort into how they look. Kudos to them for that and to anyone who wants to give them a friendly pat on the back for it. Most of them probably work out, watch what they eat, they make sacrifices that I'm sure they wouldn't mind people admiring.

If anyone has a problem with the word "hot" being used, then you and your PC attitude are a huge part of why no one can say anything anymore. Even if it's meant in harmless pleasantry.

Anonymous said...

I really don't think these gals mind one bit that the public views them as hot, sexy, or super attractive. They work hard (as 11:36 indicates) to be a product of their industry. Then again, I suppose they could wear aprons and cut up chickens over in Forest?

With about a combined 69%, I think it's fair to say that WAPT is really proving their slogan true: "The One to Watch"

Must say this is the BEST group to choose from in a long time

You knew it had to happen with a thread like this: all the people show up with their feigned outrage. It's now popular to become offended at every possible opportunity.....you know, it endears them to the "crowd" with which they hang (in much the same way college students wear their North Face jackets so they will be seen as being "in."

Some goob gets sidetracked and KingFish takes the bait. What the hell has this got to do with Larita?

Anonymous said...

Anne Parker needs to take Allie Ware's place. Ware is too nasally talking. and like 11:36, I'm glad they take care of their appearance. I'm glad my wife takes care of hers to look good for me also.

Anonymous said...

Content like "hottest reporter" contests are why many female reporters don't use their real names as on-air talent and such "contests" encourage stalking. But hey, if you want a bunch of Ashley Madison grandpas/refugees spanking it with their browsers open to your culture blog, keep up the good work.

Because Parker's voice isn't high and nasally at all

Because Keegan Fox is the hottest woman on Jackson TV by a long shot!

Anna Wolfe is pretty hot, too.

DWF said...

There have been hottest male reporter polls, also. There are not that many guys on air right now to warrant a poll.

Also, how is a fun "hottest reporter" poll anything other than a fun way to give the women some love?

Anonymous said...

11:36 You can still compliment a woman's appearance. Of course, telling her " Wow , you have a great rack" is not the same as saying" Wow, you are beautiful".
Unfortunately, I can't slap men who are rude and crude anymore without fear of assault charges.
All of these women are beautiful but it should be irrelevant to their chosen profession and that's the category. If you want to call it a beauty contest and not mention their profession, fine.
When we do " Who's the hottest male reporter or CEO or legislator" or when males are publicly critiqued by profession on their six pack abs or dick size, I'll have no complaints.
Hmmm, maybe next time I'm on Bourbon St , I'll stand on a balcony with beads and shout " Show me your dick" to every man who passes. I'm sure all of you guys would be thrilled to show off or at least , you'll all pretend so.

Kingfish said...

I don' think in this town, any judge would convict you of assault in the example provided.

Nothing stopping you from emailing me, creating your own poll, and allowing me to post it.

Why no men reporters? Have we lost our political correctness?

Lighten up folks, this poll was obviously not designed to be taken seriously or it would have included Barbie Bassett, who is not only the hottest reporter in Mississippi but one of the most beautiful women who ever lived. There are plenty of attractive - and talented - candidates, however, and I'm sure none of them would complain about winning.

Barbie Bassett, who is...one of the most beautiful women who ever lived.

Lay off the eggnog, Otis. She's cute, but there are ten girls up there that put her to shame.

9:13 p.m., they BOTH talk nasally. And they have a healthy dose of Southern accent, too. But Anne Parker's reporting quality wins over Ware, hands down.

Who is the Hottest Reporter in Jackson?

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).


Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.


In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.

Trollfest '07

Jackson Jambalaya is the home of Trollfest '07. Catch this great event which promises to leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Sonjay Poontang and his band headline the night with a special steel cage, no time limit "loser must leave town" bout between Alan Lange and "Big Cat"Donna Ladd following afterwards. Kamikaze will perform his new song F*** Bush, he's still a _____. Did I mention there was no referee? Dr. Heddy Matthias and Lori Gregory will face off in the undercard dueling with dangling participles and other um, devices. Robbie Bell will perform Her two latest songs: My Best Friends are in the Media and Mama's, Don't Let Your Babies Grow up to be George Bell. Sid Salter of The Clarion-Ledger will host "Pin the Tail on the Trial Lawyer", sponsored by State Farm.

There will be a hugging booth where in exchange for your young son, Frank Melton will give you a loooong hug. Trollfest will have a dunking booth where Muhammed the terrorist will curse you to Allah as you try to hit a target that will drop him into a vat of pig grease. However, in the true spirit of Separate But Equal, Don Imus and someone from NE Jackson will also sit in the dunking booth for an equal amount of time. Tom Head will give a reading for two hours on why he can't figure out who the hell he is. Cliff Cargill will give lessons with his .80 caliber desert eagle, using Frank Melton photos as targets. Tackleberry will be on hand for an autograph session. KIM Waaaaaade will be passing out free titles and deeds to crackhouses formerly owned by The Wood Street Players.

If you get tired come relax at the Fox News Tent. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both will entitle you to free drinks.Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required, just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '07 is for EVERYONE!!!
