Meet “Broadcast Nude” Shelly Jamison! From News Anchor To Playmate – To Firefighter!

The “Broadcast Nudes” Story Of Shelly Jamison!

One of the most enjoyable aspects of my “2021 Sex Kitten Countdown” is when fans of the series offer up interesting people, like Shelly!

When I posted about another Playmate, someone asked about “that Phoenix Newscaster who posed for Playboy” – well, here’s her fascinating story!

Shelly Jamison was born on July 10, 1962 – ultimately, Jamison majored in broadcast journalism at Arizona State University before landing a job as a local News Producer in Phoenix.

She ultimately became an On-Air Reporter and Anchor as well in Phoenix…but that all changed when she appeared in this notorious issue of Playboy in July of 1989!

“Broadcast Nudes” Indeed!

Shelly became front page news Shen she appeared clothed on the cover – and nude inside the July 1989 issue of Playboy – and what photos they were!

As the story inside noted, Shelly predicted that she would most likely be fired from KTSP for appearing in the magazine.

She rationalized that her $100,000 fee for the pictorial was more than five years’ pay at the station!

And of course, she did leave her job after the magazine hit the newsstands.

She became a sideline Reporter on the TV series “RollerGames” in 1989.

As you can imagine, the story made big news in Phoenix at the time, and I found this story that covered her Playboy appearance and subsequent departure from local News:

A Career Change From Hot To Hotter!

And here’s a “fiery” twist in Shelly’s story!

After being in the spotlight for several years, Shelly’s life took a dramatic turn!

In 1998, she made a major career change and joined the Phoenix Fire Department!

She is a member of FEMA’s Arizona Task Force One (AZ-TF1) and has deployed to numerous national disaster situations.

Her broadcasting background has led her to become a department spokesperson.

Bravo to Shelly for such an interesting life!

I have covered a number of unique, empowered Playmates who had fascinating careers:

Denise McConnell was more than just a Playmate, she was a Private Investigator as well!

Yes, she was a “Private Eye!” Click here for what Playboy called a “Private EYEFUL!”

I also shared the story of a Playmate turned successful Stunt Woman:

    • A fascinating story, Pete…she HAD to know that posing would get her fired…she must have known the publicity was better than working in Phoenix! I can say that because I didn’t…my first day there it was 117 degrees!

  3. There have been countless women who have shed their clothes and posed in the nude for Playboy, but Shelly Jamison’s pictorial is by far my favorite of all time.

    She has the face of an angel, and the body of a Goddess. Shelly is proof that a woman can be a professional in her field and be incredibly sexy with a killer body at the same time.

    The fact that after she posed nude and persevered with a prestigious and powerful career position is very admirable and makes her a perfect role model for young girls to look up to.


    • Yes, she put her career at risk to do that shoot, but she was an empowered woman who didn’t let others decide what she could do with her life! Thanks for commenting!


      • Exactly, we need more determined and strong minded people like Shelly. She is a role model. Posing nude is a positive empowering experience for women but in some cases could lead to unfortunate consequences especially in regards to a career. Shelly knew what she was doing and used this experience to get out of a job she no longer enjoyed and go for better career opportunities. I live in Phoenix and remember her being a radio talk show co-host in the 1990’s prior to getting that high position with the Phoenix Fire Department. She turned a potential negative into a positive. We’re proud of you, Shelly. Bravo!

      • Thanks for this comment! I agree with all that you said and appreciate your perspective!


  4. One of the best guest pictorials of all time. Can you imagine watching the news every night with your tongue wagging out for 30 minutes? Shelly had a perfect body and gorgeous face. I bet the news ratings for that station went thru the roof! It is great to read how she has made her life more useful after her news career, considering the state of the bias media these days. I often wondered if she caused mores fires than putting them out. Shelly was one of the greatest Playboy guest models of all time!


    • You are right. Shelly’s guest pictorial is one of the best, if not THE best, in Playboy history, even outshining the countless celebrity pictorial featured in the magazine. Shelly was quite simply..a Goddess, and even today is the ultimate MILF with killer body still. Unlike many women who posed in the magazine, she really did very well for herself later in life, she ever got remarried this past May to one of her co-workers in the Phoenix Fire Dept. She is the woman who’s pictorial has provided me the most stimulating satisfaction and that will never change.

  5. The great years of Playboy Magazine thanks to Hugh Hefner —–so innocent and non threatening but beautiful in the sense of the glorious female body. I wish that I was my age back then—77.
