Yahoo and the singing news anchor

by Adam Finley, posted Feb 27th 2007 2:01PM


I apologize for being a little late with this news, but it took my brain this long to accept that this was actually true. Yes, Yahoo is planning to launch a new online video project called "Odd News Underground" featuring a singing news anchor. Yahoo isn't saying who the anchor is, but insist the person is someone people will recognize.

I guess I can give Yahoo credit for trying to make the news even more laughable than it already is, and sure, with a name like "Odd News Underground" the new Web program probably isn't going to focus on real news, but I certainly hope they don't think this is an original idea. I've placed a video from the '90s after the jump that shows at least one man had this idea already.

Anyone want to guess who this singing news person is going to be? I'm hoping it's Matthew Wilder, personally.
