News Women Across the Country Show They’re ‘More Than a Babe’

By Stephanie Tsoflias Siegel 

The hashtag #morethanababe is catching fire on Twitter.

The hashtag, used more than 140 times by female journalists today alone, began as a response to the Babe Bracket, which is hosted by a Little Rock, Arkansas radio station.

TVSpy reported earlier this month that KARK news director Austin Kellerman called for the station to stop the sexist competition.

Now, the women journalists are speaking out. KARK meteorologist Isabella Moller was one of the first to use the hashtag #morethanababe on Twitter to show she’s more than just eye candy. The hashtag soon took off and news women across the country are now weighing in.
