List RulesVote up the best hosts and anchors on morning shows.

Many people's morning rituals involve sitting down with their breakfast and watching their favorite morning news show. There is just something about watching a trusted anchor deliver the news and the occasional puff-piece to get you in the mood to start the day. Whether you turn to ABC This Morning or CBS Morning News, there's practically a morning show on every major network channel. Which of these morning show hosts do you enjoy watching shortly after waking up?

Janai Norman and Kenneth Moton are the current anchors on ABC This Morning. The show originally debuted in 1982, and it has gone through a slew of anchors over the years. They deliver live breaking news so that you have something to talk about around the water cooler once you get to work. CBS This Morning has Gayle King, Norah O'Donnell, and John Dickerson currently serve as co-anchors to give you something to watch when you wake up on the weekends. 

No matter what channel you tune into, there is someone there waiting to give you the news. You can let the world know who you think the best morning show hosts are. Vote for your favorite anchors and hosts who are presently on TV.
