    Were there any female news anchors and reporters - local or network - that appeared in PLAYBOY?

    Female anchors that posed nude in issues of the Hugh Hefner publication - were there any?

    Claudia Shea from WPEC and WFLX in West Palm Beach did when she was a student at the University of Colorado back in 1982 under then maiden name Claudia Grassi. I am searching for that issue at a low price but it's hard to find a copy below 50 bucks.

    I seriously doubt any professional female journalist would risk career suicide just to be in that magazine.

    I don't know. Ask former WFOR-WBFS Anchor/Weatherperson Jennifer Santiago.

    Didn't WPIX traffic babe Jill Nicolini pose in Playboy? I think she did it while she was in college.

    As the other posts suggests, you're probably looking at it backwards. While it's more likely you're right in that, you'll probably find a few who posed before becoming journalists.

    Look at how many TV stations hire former models to become newsreaders.

    And of course there was the Anchorwoman debacle.

    There was one Playmate in the late '90s (I cannot remember her name), that actually posed for Playboy WHILE WORKING for a television station. She was from Oregon, and worked at a rural television station.

    Some of her photos actually were taken on the set of the station's newscast.
