Why are news anchors always pregnant?

Seems everytime I tune into the local news, I find yet another pregnant news anchor. I've lived in numerous American cities over the years, and this is one fact that never changes. News anchors love being pregnant. Or, at least, it seems that way. I'm convinced that it's come sort of CBS conspiracy to repopulate the earth with instant cub news reporters. Seriously though, have you noticed this too? Why are female news reporters always pregnant?

You know, I have never actually noticed that or paid that close attention. I guess maybe I could pay more attention but I never really considered it or really gave it much thought.

My guess is that it is because most news anchors are of child bearing age! Very rarely do you see a female news anchor that is too old to have kids. Usually the networks have deemed the more experienced women too old to be in front of the camera! What a sad thing!

You aren't alone in thinking this ... our female news anchors seem to always be pregnant. Maybe it's something to do with all that artificial light and air they are exposed to. We have one female lead anchor that has seven kids ... but she still manages to look like a Stepford wife when she is on the air.
