News Anchor Wears the Same Suit for a Year On Air and No One Noticed

 

Karl Stefanovic dressed in the same suit to highlight sexism in broadcast news.

Meet Karl Stefanovic. He’s co-host of an Australian morning TV show with a delightfully familiar name: “Today.” He’s also a super-aware guy. Having noticed that his female co-hosts regularly get comments on their appearance, he decided to wear the same blue suit on air for a year to see if anyone would catch on.
