News Anchors

I have found that females have failed to make a mark on the English news anchoring scene. With the exception of Barkha Dutt, nobody else has been able to establish herself like Prannoy Roy or Rajdeep Sardesai or Karan Thapar or Arnab Goswami. Sonia Singh and Sagarika Ghosh have already been kicked out from the prime time, and Nidhi Razdan, who is comparatively younger but has started showing wrinkles on her face, may be kicked out soon in favour of a younger lot like Palki, Kashish, Aanchal, etc.  I have watched English news debates a bit too much over the past 2-3 years on NDTV, CNN-IBN and Times Now, and see what all I can think of: Sexism. What a waste of time it was!
