Best TV Anchor - 2001
Theresa Marchetta, Channel 4
Readers' Choice: Adele Arakawa, Channel 9
Less than two years since she arrived in Denver from a TV stint in Miami, KCNC anchor Theresa Marchetta has established herself as a take-no-crap news reader with a straightforward style and an aversion to the usual lowest-common-denominator approach. Even a series of reports on her own treatment for thyroid cancer -- the sort of story that could easily have been played as melodrama -- were clear-eyed and watchable. Television needs more anchors like her.
