* The three main radio hosts of the ''VideoGame/{{Fallout}}'' series, in varying flavors.
** [[VideoGame/Fallout3 Three Dog]] frequently interrupts his own news broadcasts to talk about "the good fight", make fun of President Eden ("that ''other'' radio host") and deliver segments about the escapades of the Lone Wanderer. Depending on the number of sidequests the player has completed and how far in the story they have progressed, these LW segments can outnumber actual news about the wasteland.
** [[VideoGame/FalloutNewVegas Mr. New Vegas]] will occasionally advertise his Christmas album and hit on the ladies of the Mojave, but otherwise sticks to nice, honest reporting.
** [[VideoGame/Fallout4 Travis]] is easily the most Kent Brockman-ish of the three, ''especially'' before the quest to make him more confident. Highlights include [[DidIJustSayThatOutLoud audibly cursing himself while the mic is still running]], banging his head on something in his radio office, screaming about how the Brotherhood of Steel's arrival means we're all going to die, and [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ioTxezbsvbo his commentary on the writer of one of the songs he plays]]. The entirity of his very, very awkward commentary can be heard [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ho9WfuMo39E here]].

** Will Ferrell had a recurring role as an utter CloudCuckooLander version of Harrah Carrey whose questions never had anything to do with the news.

* In the Live-action/cartoon movie ''Film/OsmosisJones'', cellular newscasters get into a brawl against each other as the film peeks into the stressful climax. When the ordeal was over, we see them again, but this time with bandages as a comedic result of their feud.

* ''Series/TheMuppetShow'' had the recurring "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7VfytxJ_W2M Muppet]] [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w9XG7vrKtOI News]] [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SFzqMyWhPSc Flash]]" sketch, where a myopic commentator would deliver some odd bit of news, for example a downpour of anvils or localized tidal waves hitting people, and then [[DeadpanSnarker snidely comment]] on how ridiculous it was. Whatever it was would then [[DeadlineNews happen to him]]. An alternate version had him interviewing some eccentric character played by that week's SpecialGuest.

** The tail-end of a report: "... leaving the vice-president in charge." It's accompanied by a very small picture of the White House, with a thin trail of smoke leaking out. He then goes on to cover some plot-related local issue.

* In an incident that fits this trope, but is not funny at all, on July 15, 1974, Christine Chubbuck, morning host for WXLT in [[OnlyInFlorida Sarasota, Florida]], began her show by covering three national news stories and then a local restaurant shooting from the previous day. The film reel of the restaurant shooting had jammed and would not run, so Chubbuck shrugged it off and said, "In keeping with Channel 40's policy of [[IfItBleedsItLeads bringing you the latest in blood and guts]], and in living color, you are going to see another first - attempted suicide." She then drew a revolver from her pocket and shot herself behind her right ear, killing herself.

* In ''WesternAnimation/GravityFalls'', we get two variations. First, there's Toby Determined. He owns, reports for, and edits, a local newspaper called the ''Gravity Falls Gossiper'', and does work for TV and radio from time to time, but is widely considered too inept for his chosen career. (In his first speaking role, he tried to interview Stan only to be told "Your microphone's a turkey baster" and a headline for his paper reads "Reporter calls mom") On the opposite end of the spectrum is Shandra Jimenez, "A real reporter", who covers all of the events that happen in town. The problem is that she's a normal newscaster who's stuck a weird place like Gravity Falls. When the mayor dies in "The Stanchurian Candidate", she breaks down in tears because it's the first piece of real news she's had to report in a while.
