5 Best And Smart Female News Anchors In India

It’s crazy how we can all name at least 5 male news anchors off the hat but we struggle with the female news anchors names.
As I was researching, I typed “5 Best female news anchors in India”. The top few searches were, ‘Top 10 hot, cute and sexy news anchors’, ’ 5 hottest news anchors’. Just because they are women doesn’t give anyone the right to ‘label’them news anchors they get that tag. It was quite disappointing to realize that the news anchors are selected according to their ‘hotness’.

Here are a few of news anchors you should know about because "They Are Smart, Enterprising Women Who Have Something Intelligent To Say, Apart From Their Looks".
