The Top 20 Fittest Austin News Anchors


We watch them on local news everyday and can even feel like they are part of our daily routine… News Anchors can be a great example for us, especially if they lead healthy lifestyles. This is why we feel that those in the media have a responsibility to be good examples to their viewers- because they are literally in our homes everyday, being watched by our spouses, our kids, our friends. That’s why we’ve ranked the fittest austin news anchors!

We first researched all the available data on the news anchors online and narrowed it down. We used a combination of interviews, internet, industry literature, and Samir Becic’s knowledge of over 33 years in athletics coupled with his experience as 4 times Number 1 Fitness Trainer in the World to narrow the field down to 20.

The anchors on this list not only lead healthy lifestyles themselves, but also promote within their public roles on their news stations and in the greater Austin area.

The following was all taken into consideration: fitness level, nutritional habits, age, their own medical issues and how they coped with them, and involvement and promotion of healthy lifestyle. Because Austin had many fit and active news anchors, we decided to give 20 of them the credit they deserve rather than just 10!
