Naamua Delaney

Today while watching CNN when I saw this anchor and heard the way she was speaking, I thought there was something wrong with her throat. Whose bright idea was to put a brit accented lady on a major American news channel. Is there any shortage of black female anchors in US that they had to catch one all the way across the Atlantic.

Anyway, Naamua Delaney is a face of CNN.com Live, the network’s live, multi-stream video service. Delaney guides users through news reports, anchors “Now in the News,” a fast-paced hourly Web- and wireless-exclusive news update, and provides briefings on CNN/U.S. and Headline News about the most popular stories on CNN.com.

Delaney began her career as an entertainment reporter in 1997 and guess where? Of all the places with MTN in Winnipeg, Canada. Continuing her love for Canada, in 1999, she joined CTV in Vancouver as an entertainment reporter and then moved to WFTX in Boston in 1999, where she was an entertainment/lifestyles reporter. Delaney joined WNYW in New York in 2003 as an entertainment and lifestyle reporter and was the recipient of an Emmy in 2005 for the story “Radioman.” Before joining CNN.com, Delaney was the host of a daily talk show with the NBC network’s iVillage Live.

Delaney obtained her law degree from University College at the University of London.

However you will be surprised to know that she is neither from US or Canada. Born in Kent County, England, Naamua graduated with an L.L.B law degree from University College London. She then traveled to Vancouver, Canada on the Student Work Abroad Program, and began working first for a local newspaper, and then for a music/entertainment show as a writer and co-host. In 1996 Naamua landed her first broadcasting job with the Manitoba Television Network in Winnipeg, Canada. She then spent two years as an entertainment reporter and host at Vancouver Television, part of the Canadian Television Network.

      Wow, you’re one of the few people that have gotten Naamua’s ethnicity correct. I’ve seen people state and swear that she is Asian or Mexican. Anyway, I think she is incredibly talented and was also a reporter for Fox 5 news in my home town NYC for a good amount of time. She was the Entertainment & Lifestyle reporter during the evenings and did a remarkable job with each and every segment. From sources that I have meet and know who have had the opportunity of meeting this lovely woman, will tell you that naamua may possibly be one of the most authentic, genuine, and awe-inspiring people any of us will ever encounter.

      Together with everything that appears to be developing inside this specific area, your opinions are actually fairly stimulating. In any event I did enjoy looking at it.

      Zune and iPod: Most people compare the Zune to the Touch, but after seeing how slim and surprisingly small and light it is, I consider it to be a rather unique hybrid that combines qualities of both the Touch and the Nano. It’s very colorful and lovely OLED screen is slightly smaller than the touch screen, but the player itself feels quite a bit smaller and lighter. It weighs about 2/3 as much, and is noticeably smaller in width and height, while being just a hair thicker.

    10. Hands down, Apple’s app store wins by a mile. It’s a huge selection of all sorts of apps vs a rather sad selection of a handful for Zune. Microsoft has plans, especially in the realm of games, but I’m not sure I’d want to bet on the future if this aspect is important to you. The iPod is a much better choice in that case.

    11. I do trust all the concepts you’ve introduced in your post. They’re very convincing and can certainly work. Nonetheless, the posts are very short for beginners. May you please extend them a bit from next time? Thank you for the post.
