If they had to design from scratch the perfect morning headline news host I suspect the manufactured model wouldn't come too far astray from Ms. Meade. Robin is drop dead gorgeous (along the lines of Raquel Welch), articulate, knowledgeable, very natural in her presentation, personable within proper bounds, and doesn't appear too full of herself. Her supporting troops, particularly Jennifer Westhoven on the finances, are adept at handling their assigned spots. I'm not much for the news shows but Express spends just enough time on each topic to keep me interested without boring me. They also try to steer away from too many sensational Nancy Grace-type stories that kill most cable news shows for me (when they tease a Nancy Grace item I'm gone). BUT BEWARE of 1) the number of commercials HLN will throw at you during this show, and 2) the inaccuracies that crop up and hang around even after you send them an email on their mistake (like the one about "John Denver" - dead for years - being cited for excessive noise). All that said, still gets a qualified thumbs up.
