We fell for Dion Lim the first time we switched on the KMBC Channel 9 morning news. Her bright smile, her doe eyes — we crushed hard on the weekday morning anchor (with underrated partner Jim Flink) as soon as she convinced us to turn off KCTV Channel 5 and Fox 4 and turn her on. And Lim's always there for us. Even when we're late-waking, Lim is waiting for us, ready to give us the news after 8 a.m. This isn't just a physical infatuation, either. We love Lim for her relaxed delivery, her wit, her utter lack of cheesiness (as far as we've seen). She's classy, and her cheeriness helps us roll out of bed and get moving. And the more we learn about Lim — she speaks Mandarin Chinese conversationally, power-sells on eBay and plays kickball — the harder we fall.
