Best TV Newscaster Minneapolis 2009 - Alix Kendall, Fox 9

Readers' Choice: Don Shelby
Morning TV news gets no respect. The a.m. viewing audience is smaller and less captive than that of the nighttime broadcasts, but we hold that morning is an especially important time to have a non-annoying personality on-air, lest we start the day off cranky. While most local stations concede early and start showing national talk shows by 7 a.m., Fox 9's affable Twin Cities morning crew, led by veteran Alix Kendall, starts at 5 a.m. and sticks around until 9. Sure, the show is stuffed with silly morning-news staples like gossip and American Idol updates sandwiched between actual news and useful info like traffic and weather. But Kendall's steady delivery, warm smile, soothing voice, and friendly demeanor make even the most vacuous segments tolerable. Kendall, a Minneapolis native who's been with the show since it started 10 years ago, is a consummate professional who doesn't take herself too seriously—an essential yet increasingly rare pair of traits in a news anchor.

i was wondering what it would take to start a memorial fund for my daughter. she lost her baby. josh vanhouson was arrested for criminally shaking her baby. she was only 5 months old,a twin to another5 month old. she also has a 2 yr old. she s going to school but not working. shes trying to make a carrier . its been a tramatic situation. it would be a blessing if someone could start a fund for her and her two children. my email gracefullife62@yahoo.com

Alix is who I watch in the mornings. Other than being one of the two best looking women on T V in Mpls. (the other is Rina S. on 11.)I think what I like about her the most is she can exhibit a dry sense of humor that is subtle enough that you don't realize it until you're knee deep in it. She is Great!!!
