The “Anchor Bob” Is Signing Off — Meet The Women Redefining Newscaster Hair
News anchors around the country are rejecting the old rules of broadcast journalism — and wearing their hair on their own terms.
"We were told to stay away from natural hair — that it just was not accepted and it wasn't seen as professional in television news.”
"There are still so many girls who've been told by their news directors they can't wear their hair a certain way. At the same rate, you don’t want to be forced to meet someone else’s diversity requirement.”
"I still remember the first message I got from this woman on Twitter. Her little girl was watching TV that morning and was like, ‘Oh my god, her hair is fluffy like mine!’"
