Anchoring is a serious business, but that doesn't mean that the people delivering it can't have a little fun. Some of the most popular and well-loved anchors on television are those who inject humor into their performances.
Comic anchors provide a much-needed break from the constant barrage of depressing stories. They also help show viewers that everyday content can be funny and that the people delivering it are human.
