News anchors can wear shorts on small local television stations. Most of them are men, who appear on the news at 6 or 11 p.m., and they are only behind the desk. They often wear jeans. Most female anchors coordinate their dresses, but jeans or shorts don’t match.It really depends on the dress code set by the TV station.
Aside from the common international news sources (CNN, Bloomberg, BBC, Financial Times, etc.), some of the more popular sources of local news in English are ICRT (the radio station), Taipei Times (daily newspaper), China Post (daily newspaper), TaiwanNews (formerly e-TaiwanNews, a news website).
