Naked News

The Naked News logo.

Naked News, billing itself as "the program with nothing to hide", is a subscription website featuring a real television newscast prepared in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The male and female anchors read the news fully nude or strip as they present their news segments. Naked News TV is its offshoot pay-per-view or subscription service. Regardless of the gender of the anchor, the male demographic is particularly high for the show.

History

Naked News was conceived in 1998 and debuted in 1999 as a web-based news service and featuring an all-female cast. The website was popularized entirely by word of mouth, and quickly became an internet meme. During the height of its popularity, the website was promoted as receiving over 6 million hits per month. This number did not refer to the number of actual subscribers of the site, which was believed to be vastly lower. Part of the large amounts of web traffic in the site's early days was because the entire newscast could be viewed for free, though subscribers got access to a higher bandwidth feed and other extras. By 2002, only one news segment could be viewed freely, and by 2004, no free content remained on the website.

A male version of the show was created in 2001 to parallel the female version. It does not however enjoy the same popularity and fame, and there are currently more female than male anchors. Although it was originally targeted towards female viewers (at one point said to be 30% of the website's audience), the male show now openly promotes itself as news from a gay perspective.

Its offshoot Naked News TV aired as a late-night television series on the Toronto television station Citytv, and (until February 2005) on British satellite channel Get Lucky TV. The show is or has been available on pay-per-view or by subscription in various markets in the U.S., Australia, Canada, the UK, Ireland, and even France (dubbed into French).

Opinions of Naked News

Naked News has earned some praise from established journalists for its coverage of international news items not often covered in mainstream news media. Victoria Sinclair, the first NN announcer and one of only two with journalism experience, has also received some praise for her newsreading ability.

Naked News has generated some controversy among the media, and even within its own staff. Critics charge that the nudity is little more than a gimmick that trivializes important news events, while proponents argue that such gimmicks exist on most television news already; nudity is just a particularly successful one. Sinclair herself has questioned the appropriateness of disrobing while reading of tragic events. She did not undress when she read the news of the death of former Canadian Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau, nor for the September 11, 2001 program (which was not aired). The anchors have all since continued the tradition of reading tragic events fully clothed. This too has proven to be controversial as observers have complained that stories that warranted "fully-clothed" coverage were, in fact, Western or "Eurocentric" tragedies, while disasters happening elsewhere in the world were deemed "less important." In actuality, the producers of Naked News have instituted a basic rule in this area: No disrobing during any news coverage of a major tragedy anywhere in the world. It was said that events like the 2005 Indian Ocean Earthquake were reported in the nude, while news of the London bombings as well as all follow-up reports and interviews done in the following days, were done fully clothed both in studio and in London.

The show features occasional on-the-street interviews by topless newscasters, which are made possible by Ontario's Topfree equality laws. Since the show's inception in 1999, there has been much turnover among the newscasters, and many guest anchors.

. The company's loftiest efforts have been in the supercar market. Among the imitators on the internet:. The later Testarossa remains one of the most famous Ferraris. The initial success of the show's concept spawned several imitators, mostly on the websites, but also including "The Daily Flash", a news program on Playboy TV. Ferrari entered the mid-engined 12-cylinder fray with the Berlinetta Boxer in 1971. Past male anchors are:. The company has also produced front-engined 2+2 cars, culminating in the current 612 Scaglietti.

The current male anchors are:. Although they looked quite different from their 2-seat counterparts, both the GT4 and Mondial were very closely-related to the 308 GTB. Past female anchors are:. For a time, Ferrari built 2+2 versions of its mid-engined V8 cars. The current female anchors are:. Ferrari quickly moved into the Gran Turismo market, and the bulk of the company's sales remain in this area. The female announcers have been featured in almost every media including television (CBS Sunday Morning, The Today Show, The View, Sally Jesse Raphaël, and numerous appearances on Entertainment Tonight and ET Insider) newspapers and magazines, (TV Guide, Playboy) and as guests on multiple radio shows including Howard Stern. V6 and V8 Ferrari models make up well over half of the marque's total production.

Since the show's inception in 1999, there has been much turnover among the newscasters, and many guest anchors. This layout would go on to be used in most Ferraris of the 1980s and 1990s. The show features occasional on-the-street interviews by topless newscasters, which are made possible by Ontario's Topfree equality laws. The Dino was the first mid-engined Ferrari. As such, most of the show's crew comes from the Toronto area. Ferrari's earliest models were pure sports cars, not the exotics we know today. Most of the show's announcers have been recruited through classified ads in alternative newspapers in Toronto.

It was said that events like the 2005 Indian Ocean Earthquake were reported in the nude, while news of the London bombings as well as all follow-up reports and interviews done in the following days, were done fully clothed both in studio and in London.

This too has proven to be controversial as observers have complained that stories that warranted "fully-clothed" coverage were, in fact, Western or "Eurocentric" tragedies, while disasters happening elsewhere in the world were deemed "less important."

. She did not undress when she read the news of the death of former Canadian Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau, nor for the September 11, 2001 program (which was not aired). In the mid 1990s, Ferrari added the letter "F" to the beginning of all models (a practice quickly abandoned after the F512M and F355, but recently picked up again with the F430).

Sinclair herself has questioned the appropriateness of disrobing while reading of tragic events. The various Dino models were named for Enzo's son. Critics charge that the nudity is little more than a gimmick that trivializes important news events, while proponents argue that such gimmicks exist on most television news already; nudity is just a particularly successful one. This was probably to avoid confusion with the multiple 250 models produced before the GTO. Naked News has generated some controversy among the media, and even within its own staff. As well, the 250 GTO's famous acronym, which means Gran Turismo Omologato, was simply a name the Italian press gave the car which referred to the way Ferrari had, in a sense, avoided the rules and successfully homologated the car for racing purposes (Somehow, Ferrari had convinced the FIA, the 250 GTO was the same car as previous 250's). Victoria Sinclair, the first NN announcer and one of only two with journalism experience, has also received some praise for her newsreading ability. (North American Racing Team, who raced Ferrari's in America) won the famous 24 hour race of the same name.

Naked News has earned some praise from established journalists for its coverage of international news items not often covered in mainstream news media. The 365 GTB4 model only became known as a Daytona after racing variants run by N.A.R.T. The show is or has been available on pay-per-view or by subscription in various markets in the U.S., Australia, Canada, the UK, Ireland, and even France (dubbed into French). Many such names are actually not official factory names. Its offshoot Naked News TV aired as a late-night television series on the Toronto television station Citytv, and (until February 2005) on British satellite channel Get Lucky TV. Many Ferraris also had other names affixed (like Daytona) to identify them further. Although it was originally targeted towards female viewers (at one point said to be 30% of the website's audience), the male show now openly promotes itself as news from a gay perspective. This naming system can be confusing, as some entirely different vehicles used the same engine type and body style.

It does not however enjoy the same popularity and fame, and there are currently more female than male anchors. In general, the following conventions were used:. A male version of the show was created in 2001 to parallel the female version. Most Ferraris were also given designations referring to their body style. By 2002, only one news segment could be viewed freely, and by 2004, no free content remained on the website. Until the mid-1990s, Ferrari followed a three-number naming scheme based on engine displacement:. Part of the large amounts of web traffic in the site's early days was because the entire newscast could be viewed for free, though subscribers got access to a higher bandwidth feed and other extras. This was done as a protest concerning arguments between Ferrari and the Italian Racing Authorities regarding the homologation of a new mid-engined Ferrari race car.

This number did not refer to the number of actual subscribers of the site, which was believed to be vastly lower. Curiosly, Ferrari won the 1964 World championship with John Surtees by competing the last two races in cars painted white&blue, as these were not entered by the Italian factory themselves, but the US-based NART team. During the height of its popularity, the website was promoted as receiving over 6 million hits per month. When BMW re-entered F1 in 2000, they also made sure that the cars of WilliamsF1 were painted white and blue. The website was popularized entirely by word of mouth, and quickly became an internet meme. the green Jaguar Racing in F1 as well as the blue on current Renault F1 cars, which was originally contributed by a tobacco sponsor. Naked News was conceived in 1998 and debuted in 1999 as a web-based news service and featuring an all-female cast. In recent years, these traditional colors have resurfaced in some cases, eg.

. Since 1996, the Ferrari F1 cars are said to be painted in a brighter, nearly orange red, in order to fit better to their tobacco sponsor. Regardless of the gender of the anchor, the male demographic is particularly high for the show. The shade of the color varies, though. Naked News TV is its offshoot pay-per-view or subscription service. These national colors were mostly replaced by sponsor liveries since 1968, but unlike most other teams, Ferrari always kept the traditional red. The male and female anchors read the news fully nude or strip as they present their news segments. For example, a yellow Ferrari 156 was entered and driven in the 1961 Belgian Grand Prix by Olivier Gendebien from Belgium, scoring 4th behind 3 other Ferrari 156 painted in red, as they were entered by the Scuderia Ferrari itself, but driven by Americans Phil Hill&Richie Ginther as well as German Wolfgang von Trips.

Naked News, billing itself as "the program with nothing to hide", is a subscription website featuring a real television newscast prepared in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The color was not determined by the country the car was made in, nor by the nationality of the driver(s), but by the nationality of the team that entered the vehicle. Radio Tango - Oslo, Norway radio station once featured stripping female weather readers on their website. In that scheme, French cars like Bugatti were blue, German like BMW and Porsche white (since 1934 also Silver Arrows), British racing green etc. Comedie - This program on a French cable TV network ran a series promos featuring males and females casually undressing as they read jokes. This was the customary national racing color of Italy, as recommended between the World Wars by the organisations that later would become the FIA. www.strip-news.de, a now-defunct German language webcast with both male and female announcers. Since the 1920s, Italian race cars of Alfa Romeo, Maserati and later Ferrari and Abarth were (and often still are) painted in "race red" (Rosso Corsa).

Robert Milan. One example is quite prominent next to roads in Austria and Eastern European countries, as an Austrian company, named "avanti" (http://www.avanti.at) since 1972, operates over 100 filling stations marked with a prancing horse logo which is nearly identical to Ferrari's. Warren Michaels. Yet, other companies use similar logos. Brock Stern. The prancing horse is now a trademark of Ferrari. Brendan Tanner. But, as Ferrari's fame grew, Ducati abandoned the horse; this may have been the result of a private agreement between the two brands.

Joshua Holt - Recently announced he was gay in the pages of The Advocate magazine. Taglioni's father was, in fact, a companion of Baracca's and fought with him in the 91st Air Squad. Cole McQuade. The prancing horse has not always been uniquely identified with the Ferrari brand: Fabio Taglioni used it on his Ducati motorbikes. Derek Shaw. Ever since, the cavallino was shown on the Alfas that were competing against the Silver Arrows of Mercedes-Benz and Auto Union, among others. Malcolm Matisse. The first race at which Alfa Romeo would let Ferrari use the horse on the Alfas entered by his Scuderia Ferrari was eleven years later at Spa 24 Hours in 1932, which the Ferrari-led Alfa team won.

Jack Lange. Baracca using the Stuttgart horse from a shot-down plane ties in with the fact that his family owned many horses. Jeremy Chase. This is supported by the evidence Barraca's horse looks more similar to the one of Stuttgart (not changed since 1938) than the current Ferrari design, especially as the legs of the horses are concerned. Raoul Santos. Another theory suggests Baracca copied the rampant horse design from a shot-down German pilot who had the emblem of the city of Stuttgart on his plane. Lucas Tyler - The first male anchor of the show, now also producer and director, said to bear a strong resemblance to NBC newsman Matt Lauer. It has been supposed the choice of a horse was perhaps partly because his noble family was known for having many horses on their estates at Lugo di Romagna.

Sarah Winters. Ferrari left the horse black as it had been on Baracca's plane; however, he added a canary yellow background as this is the color of the city of Modena, his birthplace. Kelli Graham. The Countess asked Enzo to use this horse on his cars, suggesting that it would grant him good luck. Kaye Grant. On June 17, 1923, Enzo Ferrari won a race at the Savio track in Ravenna where he met the Countess Paolina, mother of Count Francesco Baracca, a legendary asso (ace) of the Italian air force and national hero during World War I, who used to paint a horse on the side of his planes. Gretchen Frazier. Enzo Ferrari met these competitors many times since the 1920s while competing for Alfa.

Allyson Jones. Stuttgart, called Stoccarda by the Italians, is the home of Mercedes-Benz and Ferrari's rival Porsche, which also uses the Stuttgart sign in its corporate logo, centered in the emblem of the state of Württemberg just like the city is placed within the state. Erin Sherwood. This name is derived from Stutengarten, an ancient form of the modern German word Gestüt, which translates into English as stud farm and into Italian as scuderia. Devon Calwell - At age 19, she is the youngest cast member. Curiously, a similar black horse on a yellow shield is the Coat of Arms of the German city of Stuttgart. She is unrelated to the Italian model of the same name. The road cars have a rectangular badge on the front hood (see picture above).

Carmen Russo - At age 42, she is the oldest cast member. The famous symbol of the Ferrari race team is a black prancing horse on yellow shield-shaped background, usually with the letters S F for Scuderia Ferrari, and with three stripes of the Italian national colors green-white-red on top. Holly Weston - She continued on the show throughout her pregnancy. Famous drivers include Tazio Nuvolari, Juan Manuel Fangio, Alberto Ascari, Phil Hill, Mike Hawthorn, John Surtees, Niki Lauda, Jody Scheckter, Gilles Villeneuve, Nigel Mansell, Alain Prost and Michael Schumacher. Brooke Roberts. As of 2004, the team's records include fourteen World Drivers Championship titles (1952, 1953, 1956, 1958, 1961, 1964, 1975, 1977, 1979, 2000, 2001, 2002, 2003 and 2004), fourteen World Constructors Championship titles (1961, 1964, 1975, 1976, 1977, 1979, 1982, 1983, 1999, 2000, 2001, 2002, 2003 and 2004), 179 grand prix victories, 3445 and a half points, 544 podium finishes, 174 pole positions, 11,182 laps led, and 180 fastest laps in 1622 grands prix contested. Diane Foster. Ferrari is the oldest team left in the championship, not to mention the most successful: the team holds nearly every Formula One record.

Erica Stevens. Alberto Ascari gave Ferrari its first World Championship a year later. Samantha Page. José Froilán González gave the team its first victory at the 1951 British Grand Prix. Ashley Jenning. The Scuderia joined the Formula One World Championship in the first year of its existence, 1950. Yukiko Kimura. After Ferrari's departure from Alfa, he began to design and produce cars of his own; the Ferrari team first appeared on the European grand prix scene after the end of World War II.

Cameron Shore. His Scuderia started as an independent sponsor for drivers in various cars, but soon became the Alfa Romeo in-house racing team. Gia Gomez. Enzo Ferrari's true passion, despite his extensive road car business, was always auto racing. Christine Kerr. Main article: Scuderia Ferrari. Michelle Pantoliano - Former radio & TV broadcaster from New York City. As of 2004, FIAT owns 56% of Ferrari, Mediobanca 15%, Commerzbank 10%, Lehman Brothers 7%, and Enzo's son Piero Ferrari 10%.

Lily Kwan. Other design houses that have done work for Ferrari over the years include Scaglietti, Bertone, Touring, Ghia, and Vignale. Sandrine Renard. Ferrari road cars, noted for nice styling by design houses like Pininfarina, have long been one of the ultimate accessories for the rich. Roxanne West. While his beautiful and blazingly fast cars quickly gained a reputation for excellence, Enzo maintained a famous distaste for his customers, most of whom he felt were buying his cars for the prestige and not the performance. "Athena the Greek". Image:Ferrarimascot.jpg The first Ferrari road car was the 1947 125 S, powered by a 1.5 L V12 engine; Enzo reluctantly built and sold his automobiles to fund the Scuderia.

Athena King - a.k.a. "Scuderia Ferrari" literally means "Ferrari Stable" in keeping with the prancing horse emblem; the name is figuratively translated as "Team Ferrari." (It is correctly pronounced "skoo dee ry ah".). April Torres. Right up to Il Commendatore's death, this would remain little more than a source of funding for his first love, racing. 2002. The factory was bombed in 1944 and rebuilt in 1946 to include a works for road car production. 2001, and returned in Nov. In 1943 the Ferrari factory moved to Maranello, where it has remained ever since.

Sinclair left the show in Sept. Because he was prohibited by contract from racing for several years, the Scuderia briefly became Auto Avio Costruzioni Ferrari, which ostensibly produced machine tools and aircraft accessories.Also known as SEFAC Ferrari did in fact produce one racecar, the Tipo 815, in the non-competition period; it was thus the first actual Ferrari car (it debuted at the 1940 Mille Miglia), but due to World War II it saw little competition. Victoria Sinclair - The first NN reporter, she originally performed solo before additional news anchors were added. In 1940, upon learning of the company's plan to absorb his beloved Scuderia and take control of his racing efforts, he quit Alfa. Ferrari prepared and successfully raced various drivers in Alfa Romeo cars until 1938, when he was officially hired by Alfa as head of their racing department. Enzo Ferrari never intended to produce road cars when he formed Scuderia Ferrari in 1929 as a sponsor for amateur drivers headquartered in Modena.

. The company is based in Maranello, near Modena, Italy. At first, Scuderia Ferrari sponsored drivers and manufactured racecars; the company went into independent car production in 1946, eventually became Ferrari S.p.A., and is now controlled by the Fiat group. Ferrari is an Italian manufacturer of high-end race cars and high-performance sports cars formed by Enzo Ferrari in 1929.

                                                    GTS models, in older models, are convertibles (see 365 GTS4); however, in late models, this suffix is used for targa top models (see 348 GTS, and F355 GTS; exception being the 348 TS, which is the only targa named differently). GTB models are closed Berlinettas, or coupes. M standing for "Modificata," this suffix is placed to the end of a model's number designation to denote that it is a modified version of its predecessor and not a complete evolution (see F512M and 575M Maranello). Therefore, the 512BB was five liter flat 12 (a Berlinetta Boxer, in this case).

                                                    Flat twelve (boxer) models used the displacement in liters. Therefore, the famed 365 Daytona had a 4380 cc V12. V12 models used the displacement (in cubic centimeters) of one cylinder. Thus, the 206 was a 2.0 L V6-powered vehicle, while the 348 used a 3.4 L V8.

                                                    V6 and V8 models used the total displacement (in deciliters) for the first two digits and the number of cylinders as the third.
