The two women above – Mean Dueweke (L) and Deeda Payton (R) – both made the top five of last year’s 20 Hottest Women in the Oklahoma City Media, but they moved away to other markets. Who will step up and replace them? I guess that’s what we’re going to find out, but before we do, let’s review the rest of the list:
20. Courtney Francisco
19. Meg Alexander
18. Abigail Ogle
17. Lisa Monahan
16. Lauren Nelson
15. Danielle Dupuy
14. Bobbie Miller
13. Tiffany Tatro
12. Ashley Kringen
11. Michelle Apon
10. Jessica Schambach
9. Maggie Stokes
8. Kim Passoth
7. Emily Sutton
6. Kisha Henry
Out of all the years we’ve run this feature, this batch of hotties may be the toughest to rank. It kind of reminds me of this year’s NBA Draft. There’s no clear-cut number one, and a player you get at 12 may be just as good as the top pick. I guess it all depends on team needs, upside, and taste.
Anyway, here’s the Top 5:
The girl pictured above is Siera Santos. We learned yesterday that she works for Channel 9. We learned this because she told us.
@TheLostOgle I've been at KWTV for just over a month. I'm the new sports utility girl (reporter/photog/producer/Dean Blevin's handler).

1. In Siera’s defense, I doubt she’s read the Dean Blevins section of the News 9 Employee Handbook. Therefore, she probably had no clue how funny that tweet was.
2. We’re pretty critical of Dean at times, but lets give credit where credit is due. He’s shown remarkable improvement at hiring reporter/photog/producer/ handlers. He’s gone from being handled by Toby Rowland and Mark Rodgers to Miss Central Phoenix. That’s quite remarkable.
3. That sound you just heard was Dean Blevin’s wife picking up the phone.
Since we just learned about Siera this week, she regrettably did not make this year’s list of the 20 Hottest Women in the OKC. If she’s able to tough things out in OKC for another year or two, and go swimming and eat pizza with us, there’s a good chance you’ll see her in our future ratings.
The guy pictured above is KOCO’s Morgan Chesky. Why I am publishing a picture of his handsome man face, Zack Morris hair and super chin in a post about the 20 Hottest Women in the OKC media? Check out this email he sent us in late 2012 before he started work at KOCO:
Patrick, Clark, and Tony,
Greetings from Austin. Stumbled across Lost Ogle and wanted to touch base on an upcoming move to OKC.
Just accepted a weekend anchor role at KOCO where I’ll start January 7th.
Know y’all cover a little bit of everything, but wanted to pass on my contact info should any news/media story arise.
Weekend Anchor, KOCO News
That was professional and swell I guess, but here’s the deal. If you’re a man and have an androgynous name and send an email like that to a bunch of male bloggers, please go out of your way to let them know you’re a dude, otherwise those bloggers are going to think you’re a chick, google your name, and then be tremendously grossed out and disappointed. Seriously, it doesn’t have to be much. Maybe include a reference to “grabbing beers,” “playing golf” or “hitting up a strip club.”
Anyway, here are the 15th, 14th, 13th, 12th, and 11th Hottest Women in the Oklahoma City News Media. You can view 20 – 16 by clicking here.
Welcome to our annual ranking of the 20 Hottest Women in the Oklahoma City News Media. We originally wanted to post this list in May, but then the tornado happened, an Oklahoman reporter was arrested, another tornado happened, and some weatherman told people to flee the storm. I guess you can say it was a busy and terrible month.
Because 90% of the Internet is filled with perverted lonely men or judgemental bitter women, this is one of our most anticipated annual features. When we started the series in 2008, it was done more as a joke and to provide satirical commentary on that vanity and state of TV news. It’s still kind of works that way, but now people seem to care about the list and we have to take it semi-seriously. That means I had to spend four hours of my weekend on Facebook callously judging and scrutinizing the hottest reporters and anchors this town has to offer. And I did it all for you, the TLO reader.
Before we get to the 2013 rankings, let’s take a look at the ladies from 2012 who have either moved away or left the media. This year we went all out and made a creepy “In Memoriam” tribute video for them.
That was sweet.
Today we’re going to review 20 – 16. Overall, there some new names and faces on (and off) this year’s list. We didn’t even know a lot these ladies existed until this past weekend. That probably means we’re either slipping, growing up, or depended too much on an apparent stalker to deliver us updates on hot anchors and reporters. It has to be one of the three.
Here we go:
The Oklahoma Gazette is currently seeking nominations for their annual advertorial “The Best of OKC.” In the past, we’ve encouraged our readers to nominate TLO for categories like “Best Local Blog” or “People I Really Want To Sleep With.”
This year, we’re not diving down to those lowly depths of pathetic pandering. Instead, we would like to encourage you to nominate Sparkle Titsworth as our town’s “Best Community Leader.” Why are we asking you to do this? Because why the hell not.
In case you forget, Sparkle Titsworth is the Oklahoma City woman with an awesome name who won $1,000 in gas from 7-11 a few years ago. A camera phone photo of a poster that included her name went viral, and we’ve loved her ever since. Here’s a pic of Sparkle claiming her prize.
So, there you have it. Go to OklahomaGazette.com and nominate Sparkle Titsworth as OKC’s next great “Community Leader.” Then give yourself a pat on the back for doing something awesome.
But before you do, I have to warn you about one thing.
The Gazette apparently wants to make this process as complicated as possible, and you have to submit a nomination for 27 different categories for your ballot to count. Because of that, I’ve provided some suggestions for other categories, too. Just copy and paste them over when you fill out your ballot. If most of our nominees make the cut, this whole “Best Of OKC” sham will be a lot more fun.
