Breaking News: ‘NewsBabes’ in Fight for Cure Against Cancer
Well, these babes ain’t no blushing types. Washington’s on-air glam reporters and anchors put on a rubicund show -- it gets bigger and better every year -- to support the fight against breast cancer. The fourth annual D.C. NewsBabes Bash for Breast Cancer pinked it out June 19 at the Howard Theatre to gather $18,000 in donations for George Washington University’s Mammovan. Some of the boys in the TV and radio newsrooms were allowed to attend as “Men in Pink” for the first time. A few hundred others joined the fun.
TV media personalities included cancer survivor Jennifer Griffin, Pamela Brown, Alison Starling, Angie Goff, Rebecca Cooper, Brianna Keilar, Eun Yang, Britt McHenry, Anita Brikman, Lesli Foster, Doreen Gentzler, Andrea Roane and Sue Palka. Some of the guys included Bob Madigan, Leon Harris, Derek McGinty and Ed Henry. NBC News’s Andrea Mitchell was the night’s honoree.
