I just noticed this last night while watching TV news....whenever there's a male and a female anchor, how come the male anchor is always on the left (when the viewer is facing the TV) and the female anchor is on the right side? I live in the San Francisco Bay Area, all the local stations here (KGO-TV, KPIX, KTVU, KRON, and KTSF - Asian language station) have this sitting arrangement. Then I noticed this happens on International Channel and the late night CNN news as well. I haven't check MSNBC or FOX News though. Is it the same in your part of the world?? What's the logic behind this??
