* ''VideoGame/YandereSimulator'' features one in its backstory. In the 1980s, he had found evidence that at least one murder was committed by a {{Yandere}}, [[spoiler:namely, Ryoba Aishi, who is the mother of our protagonist]]. He turned her in, only for this trope to backfire against him as she claimed to the court that he was a pervert who wanted a sensational storyline. This makes him a nationwide pariah and unemployable. Worst part is, he's right. And she's crazy enough to [[spoiler:follow him overseas after he tried and failed to bring her to justice years later]].

* More of an Intrepid Meteorologist, as he's just reporting on the weather and not uncovering conspiracies or anything, but given that he tends to report on the worst weather in the world from ''inside it'', there are good reasons that one should always endeavour to be where [[Creator/TheWeatherChannel Jim Cantore]] is not.

* In ''VideoGame/FrontMission'' for the SNES and PS1, a reporter named Frederick Lancaster joins your mercenary unit. You'd expect the guy to be TheLoad but he turns out to be quite a useful team member and ends up playing a key part in the story several times over, all in the name of "getting a good scoop".

* Several of the players in ''Roleplay/ScaryNewsOutOfTokyo3'' are reporters of this sort. They're often stuck in the area when an imminent attack is announced -- or they just don't leave, as they see no point in running. Much of what is known by the players about the characters from [[NeonGenesisEvangelion the founding work]] derives from interviews conducted by them.

** They didn't do so shabby in ''Series/TheAdventuresOfSuperman'' either. Alone among the Superman series, nearly all of the antagonists are corrupt officials, mobsters, etc. that Clark, Lois, and/or Jimmy encountered while following a news lead.

* Summer Gleason in WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries sometimes takes on this role. Lois Lane in the spinoff Superman animated series is the more traditional example.
* In the ''[[WesternAnimation/CaptainCavemanAndTheTeenAngels Captain Caveman]]'' shorts on ''[[TheFlintstones The Flintstone Comedy Show]]'', Betty and Wilma were reporters for "The Daily Granite" who'd wind up accompanying Captain Caveman on his adventures.
* ''WesternAnimation/DannyPhantom'' played with this for one episode with topnotch reporter Harriet Chin. When she finds ghost to be true, she enthusiastically scoops up the story and sends it to the paper she works on. She's promptly fired. In a later episode, she got a job as a news lady--though by that point [[TheUnmasquedWorld ghosts have become public awareness]].



%%* ''WesternAnimation/GoldieGoldAndActionJack''
* TheBigBadWolf in {{WesternAnimation/Hoodwinked}}, real name Wolf W. Wolf, is one of these. The character is heavily based on Irwin Fletcher, mentioned above.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra'': Shiro Shinobi, the announcer, was one before he took his announcing job.
* ''WesternAnimation/LibertysKids'' features two of these as main characters - 14-year-old James and 15-year-old Sarah.
* The ''WesternAnimation/QuackPack'' version of Daisy Duck was a globe-trotting reporter for the TV series ''What in the World?''.



* Lois Lane naturally in ''WesternAnimation/SupermanTheAnimatedSeries''. Her introduction revolves around her discovery of a wide-spread gun smuggling ring.
* In ''WesternAnimation/SwatKats'', "Kat's Eye News" reporter Ann Gora sometimes got herself and her camera crew in danger while following the Swat Kats' adventures.
* April O'Neil was turned into one of these for the first ''[[WesternAnimation/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles1987 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles]]'' cartoon. The change remained for the [[ComicBook/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtlesAdventures Archie adaptation]] of the cartoon, and, to a lesser extent, [[Film/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles the movies]].
