Albanian Woman Auditions for News Anchor Job Half-Naked, Impresses Network Execs


The television world is highly competitive, and in order to stay ahead of the curve, up-and-coming news anchors are feeling the need to stand out to land high ratings like 21-year-old Enki Bracaj.

Bracaj recently auditioned for a position at Albania’s Zjarr TV, but she made sure her performance was memorable by wearing a blouse that was extremely revealing. Bracaj said in an interview with Daily Mail:

“It is not easy to enter the world of television.

“So it was obvious that if I wanted to make it I had to be brave and offer something different.”


While some might think her outfit was inappropriate for the high-profile station, the powers that be at the news network were extremely impressed with her performance and confidence. Bracaj said:

“I checked first with my parents.

“When I found that they also supported me in my decision, it wasn’t a problem for me to go ahead like this. I simply found a way to put myself ahead and also ensure that my channel gets the best ratings.”


After her ratings skyrocketed, the news station offered the former public relations student a position on an international news program.


So far her wardrobe decisions have not harmed her viewing figures according to a spokesman for the channel.
