Best Performance by a TV Anchor in a Tough Spot (2001)

Jim Benemann, Channel 9

The ratings at Channel 9 have dipped since the departures of longtimers Ed Sardella and Ron Zappolo, but the station's ten o'clock newscast remains the area's most most popular -- and Jim Benemann is a big reason why. Sardella left big shoes to fill, but Benemann slipped into them quite comfortably. He's not flashy, just companionable and extremely watchable.
