Watching daily-news, without fail, has become a ritual to us. However, if we may dare to be a little honest to ourselves, we’d notice that most of this eagerness to spend a couple of hours watching news comes not from the intense craving to know the happenings around the world, than from the desire to watch the cute but equally intelligent faces of news readers. If guys watch it for fun, girls watch it for fashion. Let’s us make an attempt to know a few faces who’ve made the boring news channels lively—
