Catherine Bosley is nude as hell and she’s not going to take it any more!
A Cleveland television news reporter has filed a lawsuit against Hustler magazine for publishing nude photos of her hamming it up during a 2003 wet T-shirt contest.
Catherine Bosley, of WOIO Channel 19, is suing the pornographic magazine and its parent company, LFP Inc., for copyright infringement.
Bosley, in a complaint filed in U.S. District Court in Cleveland, said she legally owns the images, which the magazine published in a February 2006 issue.
Bosley’s decision to bare all during a Florida bar’s wet T-shirt event has caused more than one headache for the news woman. The shenanigans happened while she was vacationing with her husband in Key West, Fla.
Video of the contest spread on the Internet, forcing Bosley to quit her anchor job at Youngstown’s WKBN Channel 27.
Bosley turned to federal court to try to block the spread of the images. In 2004, Bosley testified she had trouble finding work shortly after the Internet exposure. She has been with WOIO since 2005.Â In her lawsuit, Bosley said she won ownership of the photos and video and copyrighted the material in 2004.
Bosley has requested $150,000 for each instance of copyright infringement and is seeking compensatory and punitive damages of at least $1 million.
A lawyer for LFP Inc. told the Associated Press that the magazine would seek a dismissal and that the publication of the photo in a news story is protected by the First Amendment.
You’d think that nude photos of a public figure taken in a public forum would be fair use for news commentary. Not so much, probably, for a jack-off magazine.

If you speak Spanish, Italian or Korean and long to watch your daily dish of news from a naked announcer, you’re in luck.
Toronto-based Naked News, â€œthe program with nothing to hide,â€ will feature NINE NAKED NEWS ANCHORS.
The Sydney Morning Herald
Toronto-based Naked News, “the program with nothing to hide,” is expanding its foreign-language coverage in an attempt to gain a worldwide audience.
The program, which features nine female anchors reading the news in the nude or stripping as they present their news segments, will now be broadcast in Spanish, Italian and Korean, along with its already available Japanese broadcasts.
Naked News President David Warga said the licensing agreements are confidential and could not divulge the names of the local affiliates that will be producing the shows in Milan, Mexico and South Korea.
The multilingual broadcasts will be available online and through mobile providers, as well as on traditional pay-per-view television stations. Naked News TV is currently available on pay-per-view in the US, Europe, Australia, Asia and Canada.
The channel gets its information from regular news services and uses professionally trained writers and directors to produce the bulletins of political, business, sport and entertainment news.
“The original Naked News English version has always focused and presented an international broadcast. Now with the addition of the foreign-language licensees, our intention at Naked News is to be a global media source, much like CNN or BBC World,” Warga said. “We have a worldwide audience, but we haven’t been able to give them localized news until now.”
Created by Fernando Pereira and Kirby Stasyna, Naked News first aired online in 1999 and created quite a lot of attention as anchors aired themselves and the news. The website was popularized mainly by word of mouth and during its height in 2001 was registering 6 million “unique visitors” a month, which was almost two-thirds of the 9 million monthly viewers registered by CNN at the time.
We here in the states are not in the dark with naked news anchors.
Sharon Reed was one of hundreds of people who participated in Spencer Tunickâ€™s nude photo installation in downtown Cleveland in June. Her report, shown Monday on WOIO-TV, showed far away angles of her nude and some closer semi-nude shots, as well as other participants. [see NSFW pictures here]
There was also former Youngstown, Ohio anchorwoman Catherine Bosley

On a personal note, what’s wrong with her left boob? It looks like it was stuck on there with velcro.

Stupid Celebrities Gossip linked with Naked News goes international & naked women pics.
Kevin Aylward reports on the latest developments in the career of France’s “LCI Matin” news babe Melissa Theuriau, who is apparently the Gallic answer to Katie Couric with a little bit of Pamela Anderson thrown in.
She has her own website with numerous wallpapers and a photo gallery.
Kevin has dug up news that she being considered for “the evening news anchor spot” but expresses his hope that she is “passed over for that gig and in a fit decides to bring her news act to America.” More importantly, he has dug up several pictures of the lovely Theuriau frolicking around nude on a beach:
The standard practice in such situations, according to the prevailing trends on popular celebrity blogs, is for me to steal all of his images, change the filenames, and pretend they I found them myself. Instead, I invite you to click over and view the much larger (and unmasked) images for yourself. If you’re interested in hot, naked, French news babes, that is.
On the other hand, if you’re interested in recruiting her for your news team, and you speak French, Google has a huge collection of Theuriau videos. So does her personal site. She is, alas, fully clothed in all of them.
