Michelle Pantoliano , age 30, joined Naked News in January 2002. Michelle's solid reporting background, versatility and communication skills, along with her innate beauty, made her a natural to join the program.
Michelle's hilarious Locker Talk segment can be seen each weekend on Naked News. Some have referred to it as the rantings of a madwoman, but we say no one else will make you laugh like Michelle. Newly engaged, her adventures with fiance "He Who Cannot Be Named" will have you in stitches. Once you see Locker Talk you won't be able to wait for the next installment.
Michelle was born and raised in New York, though she now calls Toronto home. She is a broadcast journalist, and holds a degree in Broadcast & Communications. She began her career by hosting a radio show in Pomona, New York. Next, she hired on as a page at NBC-TV in New York City, which involved working with CNBC's Ron Insana and Sue Herrera. She was also a reporter for a cable television program airing throughout the New Jersey-New York area for several months. Michelle's accomplishments also include two years on Wall Street as a fully-licensed sales assistant at the Government Bonds Desk at a major securities company.
Michelle read about NakedNews.com in USA Today in April 2001, visited the site and liked what she saw. When she was able to return to work, she used the website's "Auditions" button to apply for a position and it all fell into place.
A very gifted woman, Michelle sees working in the nude as simply part of the job description. She stays fit through a combination of belly dancing, kickboxing and weightlifting. She's a fan of suspense novels, prefers to rent movies and loves to travel. Her ultimate goal is to be the next Barbara Walters, and she believes that her experience at Naked News is a step in the right direction. Naked News is delighted to have someone with Michelle's talents as part of the team .
