* Richard Engel, Creator/{{NBC}} News' Chief Foreign Correspondent and perhaps the greatest example of this in the 21st century.
-->'''[[Series/TheRachelMaddowShow Rachel Maddow]]''': [''opening a minutes-long spiel on just how awesome Engel is''] Richard Engel is NBC's Chief Foreign Correspondent, and forgive me for saying so, but he is better at being a foreign correspondent than anybody else in this business in this country. He is the best of his generation. You can drop Richard Engel anywhere in the world, and he will intrepidly hunt down the most important, most newsworthy thing that is happening there. And when the most important news in the world is happening in the kind of place you are not supposed to drop a foreign correspondent, he is the kind of guy who has been known to get himself there anyway in order to get the story.

* ''Radio/TheAdventuresOfSuperman'' paid only lip-service to Clark Kent's "mild-mannered" description--especially in the early years, when {{Superman}} operated mostly as an urban legend, and it was Clark Kent who investigated all the stories. When WorldWarTwo broke out, Clark even became an agent of the federal government on the side.

* Heather Stone, the main character of ''Literature/{{Newshound}}'', is one of these. Given that much of the story focuses on the operations of a daily newspaper, it's not surprising that most of the extended cast also qualify.

* At no point in his long career was (now-retired) war correspondent Joe Galloway ever shy about rushing headlong into danger for the sake of a story. Most famous was his conduct at the Battle of Ia Drang during the VietnamWar, which was d, Pavlovic created ''Informe Especial''[[note]]Special Report[[/note]]ramatized in the film ''WeWereSoldiers'' (see above). He voluntarily accompanied U.S. Air Cavalry soldiers into a highly active combat zone where they were cut off from ground reinforcements, getting so close to the fighting that at one point it became necessary for him to keep an M-16 on his lap for self-defense, and taking considerable time out from his photography in order to drag wounded men to safety. Some of his photographs of the fighting became the first images many Americans had ever seen of the war in Vietnam. Later in life, his affinity for soldiers led him to become [[http://original.antiwar.com/author/galloway/ ferociously critical]] of shortsighted politicians who sacrificed soldiers' lives for what he believed were frivolous and idiotic reasons.
