Who is Richmond's sexiest news anchor? No, really...

I'm a few days behind this major story, so forgive me. WRVQ listeners have voted WRIC's John Bernier and Dawn Davenport as Richmond's Sexiest News Anchors! Now, aside from the fact that even holding a sexiest news anchor contest should make about as much sense as voting for Funniest State Employee or Richmond Waitress with the Straightest Teeth, the sad fact is that it does make a certain kind of sense, doesn't it? Nobody really wants unattractive people delivering their news, do they? And if they must, they can write for the newspaper or in magazine columns.

And so I find myself caught between loathing the idea and joining in. John Bernier? Really? Now, there is nothing at all particularly unsexy about John Bernier. He's a perfectly nice-looking guy. But out of all the Richmond news anchors, John Bernier is the hottie? Take a little spin around the news channels' Web sites (links below) and let me know who you would vote for* if, you know, you weren't officially offended by the idea to begin with.


WRIC Anchors

WWBT Anchors

WTVR Anchors


*My vote goes to Channel 12's Aaron Gilchrist.

Dawn Davenport's cute in that airbrushed playmate way, but there's a nobody home look in her eyes. Gimme Julie Bragg.

I vote for Ric Young and Tracy Lynn. How about radio DJs too? Definitely Bill Bevins & Kat Simons.
