First off, this post is done with some guilt, bad taste, political incorrectness, etc. etc. ... but in the face of tragedies, sometimes you just have to look for the silver lining. While his reporting of Katrina was stellar, you have to admit part of the reason Anderson Cooper 'broke out' during that time was because of his good looks... and he broke out the tight-ish t-shirts (and the guns!) again this past year in Haiti (even his CNN comrade, Dr. Sanjay, tried to get in on that one).
So yes, the BP oil spill has had its fair share of hunky reporters, both new and old.
I am an ABC News watcher and the first time Matt Gutman appeared on the TV screen it was a big "And who do we have here?" moment.
... and alas the hunk buzz about him on the gay blogosphere has begun (that link goes to the "you better act quick, before Towleroad beats you to the punch"!)... and I am not sure this picture does him total justice.
But for ABC News long-time regular hotness, there is no substitute (at least for me), for David Muir. He was down at the Gulf this week and ditched the suit-and-tie... and was looking tan and buff and dreamy. This morning he posted some pics on Twitter of his trip/report with the US Coast Guard. And ummm, even with helicopter hair... well, just take a look for yourself...
