That's PBS? Yeah, I'd assume PBS goes very light on stylist and wardrobe services, due to lack of resources. The PBS hosts I have watched looked dressed blandly acceptably, no effort to look fashionable.

I wish some of the men would get better tailors. I see some stylish suits but many are ill-fitting. Lester Holt is a good example. He had on a great navy blue suit not long ago but it was a tad small for him.
Lester Holt always looks well put together. The tighter fit on suits is in style now.

True, but I haven't seen that particular suit again. The gray one last night looked good.

Al Roker always looks very sharp too, but I think he is probably represented by some clothing stores in NYC.

I'm not talking about guest commentators like Cokie Roberts or other women who work outside of the networks, and just appear on panels.

Who I'm specifically talking about are the women on the Fox morning shows, and then a few others during the day, like Outnumbered, etc.
They seem to dress all the same, in bright colored, skin tight sleeveless dresses, yet they never seem to repeat. They all seem to be about the same size, so maybe they rotate.

They have a sort of uniform style there. Dresses or suits no pattern. Solid color. You can tell they often buy the same in various colors (or provide it). I think I even read that years ago.

Except the color commentators like Judge Janine LOL. She's wild.

Sometimes a dress looks a little short in the waist or something. Like on Abby Huntsman.

Aynsley wore some patterns lately and it's horrible watching IMO - especially with the super bright background in the studio. Like loud plaid, flowers or geometric color blocked red, white, black. NO! LOL

Kelly Rippa from Live with Kelly said her clothes are borrowed from stores or designers and she sends them back.

Apparently when Roger Ailes was in charge of FNC, he had rules against female anchors wearing pants. Recently one of their anchor-women wore a pair of slacks on-air, and people were shocked--but it was something of a tempest in a teapot, since Ailes is no longer in charge, and I don't think it was a violation of contract or anything--just a strong request.

I'm 99% sure the personalities working out of major network hubs (NYC, DC, LA) would have some kind of agreement with clothing companies. Those in local news or smaller markets would likely get a clothing allowance as part of their job (to supplement their own shopping for wardrobe) or maybe some local store would do a 'clothes provided by..." credit. A while back there was this almost comical story about a certain dress design (sold online) that seemed to be worn by female meteorologists all over the country, worn not for its high style or anything, but because the color would not clash with the green-screen, and local stations also have clothing restrictions for women (length of hem, no cleavage, etc.). Unfortunately the newly-hired reporters rarely have any sort of allowance for clothing, so they have to blow a lot of their (low) pay on "presentable" on-air wardrobe paid for out of their own pocket.

In a different area, I recall Rue McClanahan saying that the producers of The Golden Girls allowed her to buy clothing that "Blanche" had worn on-screen earlier in the season. The clothing (much of it altered to fit her) went home with her after a season ended, so you will often see McClanahan in "Blanche" outfits at off-screen events, like a dress she wore to the Emmys one year. From one season to another, Blanche had different 'looks' while some of the outfits worn by the other three ladies could be seen across multiple seasons.

When I hear "on air personality," I think of radio (and not televised radio), like my husband's job. He wears his own (nasty) clothes, but no one ever sees him LOL I don't watch newscasters, so I've no idea what goes on with them.
