Survey Reveals America’s Most Liked and Disliked News Anchors

The results are in and the viewers have spoken: no longer do media critics and news analysts have to guess at which presenters and anchors are the audience’s favorites. Based on results from a survey conducted by the Q Scores company, The Wrap has revealed who your most and least liked news anchors are.

With a 19 positive Q Score, CBS Evening News anchor Scott Pelley came in at number one on the list, narrowly beating CNN’s Anderson Cooper (18 positive Q Score points) as America’s favorite news anchor.

60 Minutes reporter Lara Logan came in third place among surveyed news consumers while NBC’s Brian Williams and CNN’s New Day hosts Chris Cuomo and Kate Bolduan all tied for fourth place.

Fox News hosts and anchors Bill O’Reilly, Sean Hannity, and Shepard Smith all scored a “below-average” 10, according to the Q Score survey, but still beat out their competitors on MSNBC. Andrea Mitchell and Alex Wagner scored 9 and 8 respectively.

At the bottom of the list, MSNBC’s Hardball anchor Chris Matthews had the lowest likability score of all the names tested. He registered only a 6 on the Q Score survey.
