Best TV News Anchor - 2005
Readers' Choice: Mike Bush, KSDK-TV (Channel 5)
A pinch-hit anchor most frequently found gracing the weekend evening desk, Kay Quinn's utility status means she also must hit the field and report, primarily on matters surrounding health. Quinn's a professional, and when a professional gets her mitts on a story, that's when it really takes off. Moreover, the mark of a competent television personality (it's awfully difficult to call these people reporters) is how well said personality does when the TelePrompTer goes on the fritz. Unlike all too many of her colleagues in the profession who couldn't ad-lib their way past a paraplegic bouncer, Quinn turns lemons into lemonade in a butter-smooth alto.
