Good luck to him I can only imagine the pressures to appear younger.

Some broadcast companies require their on air talent to maintain a youthful and appealing appearance. It is built into their contract. If they look old, tired, or boring, they could be terminated.

But some hair dye jobs indeed look better than others. If done right, it is more subtle and can look appropriate.

  • OK, then why keep Debra Morgan's shoulders/upper arms covered for years?
  • Bad ink? Bad tatts. Tetanus booster scaring?

What about Fishel and Crabtree? They're graying and putting on the pounds? I think Bill is hitting the Just For Men hard because he wants to.

Clothing in TV news is all consultant-driven.

That's what I figured . I actually looked up whether anchors buy their own wardrobe or if the station provides it. Supposedly it's not provided,but I'm sure most use a personal stylist of some sort. I was driven to look it up after discussing with my DH once again, some horrible get up Elizabeth Gardner was wearing that day. I've seen her recently and she has a much more attractive figure in real life. Some of the color choices are questionable as well.

I feel for any guy suffering from "Elvis" hair. That's my term for when guys try to dye their hair brown and end up getting it too dark or black. I'm a home dyer myself and it takes experience to choose the right shade of color. My rule is if you want anything lighter then dark brown hair,you use the lightest brown available or a dark blonde dye. Covering gray is where it gets tricky. You almost have to color your hair too dark in order to cover the gray. I warned my DH when I did his, that for a couple weeks it might be a tad obvious but gradually fades after continuous washing.

Trust me fellows, even if you consider your natural hair color to be Black do not use black dye unless you wanna impersonate Elvis or join a Goth+Emo band.

Bill Leslie is 65, and I think David Crabtree is in that vicinity too. Retirement, whether full or partial, is looming for them. (Charlie Gaddy retired at 63.) Greg Fishel is 58 and has some years on air remaining. Debra Morgan and Elizabeth Gardner are in their late 40s and could be on the air for a long time.
