We had so much fun doing our Top 10 Cutest Newsmen list last year that we decided to give it another go. To make things more challenging, we’ve decided to temporarily disqualify the newsmen on last year’s list so we can put a fresh bunch of news cuties in the spotlight. Admittedly, it made our search more difficult. This is why—aside from hardcore news staples—we expanded our "hunting ground" to news magazine shows and lifestyle news programs.
In the spirit of cost-effective brainless fun, SPOT.ph lists 10 of the cutest TV newsmen in the country. (Pretty please, if you know more cute newsmen, let us know. They just might make it to next year’s list.)
It's a shame we can't find a clip showing Ian Cruz in a suit. (But he's still eye candy nonetheless.)
10. IAN CRUZ
This GMA News correspondent’s unassuming tisoy good looks have charmed viewers for years. It's probably because he reminds us of that shy boy next door who doesn't realize that he can be a chick magnet if he puts his mind to it. The fact that Cruz's photos are not easily available online says a lot. (The absence of pictures also paints a thousand words.) Cruz does segments for GMA-7 news programs such as Saksi, 24 Oras, Balitanghali, News to Go, and others. Occasionally, he takes time out from field duties and suits up for flash reports. We have to say that he looks even better when he’s not being battered by the elements.
Last year's No. 10: Aljo Bendijo (IBC-13, NBN-4, and RPN-9)
