Denver’s KMGH has a few nominees for People‘s ‘Sexiest News Anchor Alive‘ contest, and they want their fans to spread the word.

The E.W. Scripps owned ABC affiliate is nominating evening anchor Eric Kahnert along with morning anchor Mitch Jelniker and ”TheNow” anchor Lionel Bienvenu, all three of whom have their own faux People covers.

The anchors will be judged on the following criteria: perceived sexiness (50%), location within the United States (25%) and social media following (25%). KMGH is encouraging fans to help spread the word about their three sexy contenders:

Here at 7NEWS, we’re hoping you’ll help get the attention of People Magazine’s editors by tweeting them about 7NEWS morning anchor @MitchJelniker, TheNow anchor @LionelBienvenu and @7NEWS evening anchor @EricKahnert.
