    Oh dear, I must be getting too old. Is there really a need for this?

    Naked news hits Kiwi TV
    5:00AM Sunday March 23, 2008

    Current affairs buffs seeking the naked truth will soon be able to tune into New Zealand's first nude news broadcast.

    Scheduled to air on independent channel Alt TV in mid-May, Naked News Flash will consist of nightly wrap-ups of the day's events. It will screen at 10pm and be sponsored by a condom company.

    The concept is the brainchild of actor and director Oliver Driver, who joined Alt as a shareholder and creative director last year.

    He wants male and female presenters who care about the news and says application forms can be downloaded from the Alt website.

    "It will be real news," he says, "just with presenters who are naked."

    There's already a naked news somewhere in the world, cos it was on one of those programs that shows bizarre shows from around the world. So much for your 'concept', Oliver.

    The greatest mistake you can make in life is to be continually fearing you will make one.

    Guess the job wouldn't be any good for immigration purposes as it only lasts for 3 months. Looks like you won't stand a chance Taffy as they appear to only be looking for women despite saying in the previous article they were researching both men and women - but then I think most of us guessed that would be the case .

    Search on for NZ naked news anchor
    Tuesday, 25 March 2008

    Articulate, presentable, comfortable in your own skin? The latter is vital for New Zealand's independent TV channel Alt which plans to screen a naked news bulletin nightly from late April.

    Alt is calling for applications for a news anchor.

    Applicants should have "no inhibitions on reporting on the facts that matter, delivering hard hitting commentary and showing their 'assets' in front of a large news hungry audience," the channel said today.

    It has invited "young women with the ability to speak clearly, articulately and confidently, are well-presented and comfortable in their own skin," to apply for a live audition.

    It's going to be tough for the auditioners. The channel said today it would have a "four week search" to get the right person to front Naked News Flash.

    Applicants aren't asked for a tape of previous newsreading stints, but they are asked to provide a topless photo. They must also prove they are 20 and give details of previous experience.

    Naked fame might be fleeting though. The successful newsreader will have a contract for three months.

    The idea behind the show comes from Alt's creative director Oliver Driver, though it is borrowed from Canada, where the nakednews.com website began in 2000 and at the height of its popularity was receiving six million hits a month.

    Driver said that although there might be critics saying objectification would overshadow news content, "integrity will not be sacrificed for flesh.

    "Naturally there will be a strong sense of newsworthiness on the show with highlights from the daily news. "But there will of course be that little bit of titillation to draw in the viewer's attention."

    The first broadcast of the naked news is due on April 28.

    Bob McCoskrie of lobby group Family First NZ told the Herald on Sunday it seemed like another case "of pushing the envelope" over good taste and decency on television. "Most people would be horrified," he said.
