Denver's five best hairdos on TV personalities, just-for-men edition

The 2012 Best of Denver edition gave the much-sought-after prize of "Best Hair on a TV Personality -- Male" to Ron Zappolo, Fox 31 anchor. Zappolo, a longtime sports guy who moved to the anchor's chair years ago, received the award mostly for his mustache, which oozes professionalism and commands your attention and respect. But as it is every year, selecting this award is a grueling process, because so many candidates are worthy! Below are our countdown of the five best hairdos on Denver's male TV personalities. 5. Jeremy Hubbard, KWGN Anchor Jeremy Hubbard -- winner of this year's award for Best TV Anchor -- has hair that's a thick helping of news. 4. Don Champion, reporter for 7 News Don Champion not only has the coolest name of any Denver TV personality, but his hair isn't bad, either It says one thing to the viewer: "I was so busy hustling on a story that I didn't have time to sit in front of my mirror for fifteen minutes fixing my hair. Now here's a story that will blow your mind, Denver. And my hair looks great anyway." 3. Marc Stewart, reporter for 7 News Not a hair out of place for Marc Stewart, reporter for 7 News. Coupled with his thoughtful yet intense gaze, Stewart's hair is a perfect compliment to the scoops he delivers. The top 2 are on Page 2 2. Mark Koebrich, 9 News anchor The well-coiffed hair of Mark Koebrich is a throwbrack to when a man's hair meant something -- luxuriuous yet neat and with just the right amount of gray. You can trust Koebrich. Just look at this haircut. 1. Ron Zappolo, anchor for Fox 31 Ron Zappolo may have his own "People" on his Sunday-night talk show, but the Fox 31 anchor's mustache belongs to all of us. From beneath that lip sweater comes the most important news of the day, and his 'stache/silver tousle-combo gives big stories the appropriate level of gravity. Zappolo has been a fixture on local TV for decades, delivering the news with hair that demands your attention. And respect.
