Best TV News Anchor

Pat McGonigle

The Today in St. Louis anchor has only been in town since 2011, but he has already set himself apart from the rest of the pack. McGonigle is pretty much down for anything in the name of "journalism" — including getting peed on by a cat, which made Jennifer Blome laugh so hard that she cried. He got pranked by Granite City, Illinois, firefighters while learning what it's like to go into a burning building, he demonstrated St. Louis' various mugshot faces while being (fake) booked in a Des Peres jail, and he drop-kicked a three-pointer at Washington University's basketball court. He's also a lively presence on social media, regularly updating his Facebook page and Twitter, facilitating a Vine contest and occasionally making fun of David Hasselhoff. McGonigle really won us over, though, when he gave his GIF-worthy reaction to KSDK's story on hipsters invading Cherokee Street. That's how we feel too, Pat.
