Everyone knows that news anchors have a specific accent and cadence of speaking.
But very few know what it’s like to grow up in a household where both parents have that signature “newscaster voice.” TikTok mom @msnewslady and her husband are both news anchors, so their daughter Bella gets a daily baby rundown like no other.

“Good morning, Bella. It’s 9:52 a.m. Hopefully, you slept well. Certainly, no one else did, but we’re not gonna point any fingers. Let’s send it over to Robert Burton for more on your weather,” the mom said in her signature flare.
Then it was dad’s turn, “Well, JR, beautiful day outside. As you can see, temps in the mid-80s, no humidity. Will we get to enjoy it? Well, if spit-ups, feedings, and diaper changes don’t get in the way, we just might be able to make it out of here before midnight.”
The hilarious video racked up 6.5 million views and 1.7 million likes on TikTok.

“She’s gonna start doing the morning announcements at school in kindergarten,” another wrote.
“This is literally how I always pictured anchors speaking in their everyday lives,” someone joked.
For those curious, most anchors sound alike because they speak with a General American English accent. This kind of “no-accent accent” became popular in the 1920s as a way to establish a widespread American dialect that wasn’t too English or too Southern. It’s a “speaking voice” chosen by news anchors because it enables them to work anywhere in the country and sound local.
