The 20 Hottest Women in the OKC News Media (15 – 11)

MORGAN-CHESKY-jpg

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.

Best,

Morgan Chesky
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.

Oklahoma has officially jumped on the e-cig vaping craze…

Oklahoma is one of the most unhealthy states in our gravy gobbling nation.We’re always listed towards the end of “healthiest states” lists. We are fat, not very active, and smoke tons of cigarettes (and other things). Now, thanks to liberal scientists with agendas, we might finally be able to cut into the smoking section of our unhealthy lifestyle.

Yes, it looks like the e-cigarette craze has finally reached Oklahoma. We know this because NewsOK said so…

An electronic cigarette, or e-cigarette, is a device some Oklahomans are using to try to quit smoking. And some e-cigarette researchers say within 10 years, e-cigarette users will surpass the number of smokers in the U.S.

E-cigarettes come in a variety of shapes and sizes. Essentially, they’re a smokeless way to ingest nicotine, although some e-cigarette users choose products that don’t have any nicotine.

The term “vaping” comes from the vapor that comes out when e-cigarette users use the device.

Nationwide, about 21 percent of adults who smoke traditional cigarettes had used electronic cigarettes, also known as e-cigarettes, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. That’s up from about 10 percent in 2010.

They’re becoming an increasingly more common choice for smokers trying to quit, but public health officials have not added e-cigarettes to their list of viable ways to kick the habit.

Rather, Jennifer Lepard, of the Oklahoma State Department of Health, said the research that’s been performed on e-cigarettes isn’t solid enough at this point to warrant an endorsement.

“We don’t want to discourage anybody who is looking to quit smoking cigarettes,” Lepard said. “We do, however, believe that there are more scientifically proven ways to quit.”…

Before I make fun of e-cigs, e-cig users and Abigail Ogle, I should tell you that I use tobacco products. I have been dipping since college. It’s a disgusting habit, but at least I don’t look as stupid as the dude sucking on an L.E.D attached to a vaporizer at a library. Plus, I always have a spit-cup near… ladies.

Why being a grown up is really, really hard…

grown_up

If you’ve read The Lost Ogle over the last two years, you know two irrefutable, irrevocable facts about me: A) I’d sell my soul for a chance with Nick Collison, and B) I freakin’ loved college. I still wear Fiji Island tank tops to the gym. I haven’t missed an OU home game since 2006. I’m always quietly on the lookout for $1 drafts and $2 red-headed sluts. Rollerblading in my Tri Delt shirt is still one of my favorite pastimes. I spent four really good years walking laps at Seven47 and dodging the IFC at frat parties. I made good grades without studying, and I comfortably lived off a monthly allowance from my parents. Overall, I’d call that period in my life nothing short of idyllic.

When I graduated in May of 2007, I was bummed that my friends were dispersing across the country, but I was also excited about the road ahead. I was backpacking Europe for a month before I started my new job, I had a pretty sweet apartment to live in, and I was lined up to write weekly posts for some obscure, local, social blog my friends were all obsessed with. I knew there’d be some sort of an adjustment period, but the “grown ups” on Friends, How I Met Your Mother, and St. Elmo’s Fire made it seem like I’d have a close, co-ed group I’d hang out with every day at the local watering hole. Becoming an adult would be easy like Sunday morning. Or, so I thought.

If you’re rolling your eyes and thinking “oh great, another entitled, lazy, spoiled, millennial’s manifesto about how tough life is,” well, you’re sort of correct. I’ve had two full years in the “real world” now, and I’ve reasoned that I—and everyone who owned their first cell phone in their teenage years—pretty much suck at it. Of course, the reasons why are all completely our own fault. I’ll give you a detailed breakdown of a typical twentysomething’s hardships after the jump.

20 Hottest Women in the OKC News Media (20 – 16)

veronica corningstone

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:

Monday Morning Tweets: Kelly Ogle was a handsome groom

I would like to start my first MMT off by saying that on the inside, I’m the meanest girl in school. Sure, I’m a nerd and nobody wants to invite me to parties and I’m socially awkward and I’m always two inches from having the popular kids pour pigs blood on me at prom (metaphorically). But much like Carrie, I’ve learned how to get revenge. Unfortunately, my malicious telekinesis, much like my boobs, is underdeveloped at best. So, I like to make fun of popular kids. I know, it’s gross. I should just get over it. but I can’t. And I won’t. So, just so we’re clear: Henceforth, MMT will kind of be me making fun of people who are prettier, smarter, richer, and happier than me. I will not stop until I’m the Joan Rivers of Oklahoma.

Check out this week’s tweets after the jump!
