It is absolutely a factor. Absolutely. It's not too often you see fatties/ugly chicks reading the news.

Or ugly people, for that matter.

Remember Roseanne? Could a live action sitcom even have main characters that ugly anymore? Even the daughter was funny looking.

The black girl on that one show with Skip Bayless seems to know her stuff and isn't exactly amateur model hot.

It plays a large factor but it's not like they have no journalism credentials. A more attractive woman will probably be selected over a slightly more qualified, less attractive woman. But you also have to take into consideration that they don't need the most qualified to fill some of the smaller segments, and having a face for TV can be considered a qualification as well.
