* The Press Society of ''Anime/CuteHighEarthDefenseClubLove'', although they do online articles for the Binan High website instead of a hard-copy newspaper.
* Saehara Takeshi of ''Manga/DNAngel'', though he has a tendency to double as a one-man version of ThoseTwoGuys.
* Maya from ''Manga/DetectiveSchoolQ'' BoardingSchool case. [[spoiler: Which almost gets her killed, since she didn't know that one of her tapes had ''vital'' info about the case...]]
* Nanami Jinnai from ''[[Anime/ElHazardTheMagnificentWorld El Hazard]]'' isn't even in the broadcasting club, but she accompanies them in order to humiliate her older brother on live TV with (truthful) accusations of rigging the student council election.
* ''Manga/KaitouSaintTail'' parodies it with Sawatari, an otherwise competent reporter with a penchant for making absurd claims about journalism before disproving them two seconds later.
* Three of these characters are introduced in episode 29 of ''Manga/KeroroGunsou'', trying to investigate the aliens living with Fuyuki [[spoiler: and pay for it dearly]].
** The club members are Tsukigami Chiryu, Yamaura Teimei, and the yet-to-be named camera man.
* ''VideoGame/KiniroNoCorda'' has Nami Amou who mainly reports on the schools music competition.
* Raika Nario from ''Anime/{{Maburaho}}'' has a literal aiming sight on her camera and is intent on sniffing out juicy material.
* Kazumi Asakura from ''Manga/MahouSenseiNegima'' has [[{{Magitek}} magic-powered]] [=UAVs=] to assist her in this role.
%%* Momo from ''Manga/ManabiStraight''.
* Tsutako and Minako from ''LightNovel/MariaSamaGaMiteru''. Plus later on Minako's soeur Mami, HER soeur Hidemi, and Tsutako's "admirer" Shouko. It's a sprawling series.
* The Broadcasting Club in ''Manga/MarmaladeBoy''. Specially Furutachi-sempai, who once ''seriously'' screws up by [[spoiler: taking pics of Miki and Yuu's recently re-married parents]]. To his credit, he immediately regretted the mess he had caused and [[spoiler: not only alerted the parents when Miki and Yuu were harassed by a SadistTeacher, but managed to bring them to the school so they would give their own testimony, leading the parents to pull a CrowningMomentOfAwesome where they pwn said teacher.]]
* Kaori Shimakura from ''Anime/OjamajoDoremi'' is an 8-year-old version of this trope. [[spoiler: There are [[HiddenDepths deeper reasons for it]], though: it's to cover up for her [[HeroicSelfDeprecation severe self-esteem problems]].]]
* ''Manga/OuranHighSchoolHostClub'' had one of these purposely trying to dig up any dark secrets of the club, especially on [[ShelteredAristocrat Tamaki]], making it seem more like a School Paparazzi Hound. Naturally for a school catering the stinkin' rich, it is extremely elaborate, despite its almost zero readership. The school newspaper is straight-up ''called'' a gossip rag by Hikaru and Kaoru. The fact that despite being the son of the head of a famous newspaper the Newspaper Club's head doesn't dispute this fact (and during the episode that the newspaper is featured in is actively attempting to get information out of Haruhi that he can use to humiliate Tamaki) serves only to bolster this claim. It's also outright stated that the reason that the newspaper's circulation is almost nothing is ''because'' it focuses on dirty secrets of various other students instead of anything newsworthy.



* ''Manga/ThePrinceOfTennis'':
** Despite not belonging to the school newspaper, Sadaharu Inui fits some of the tropes when he goes in his "data gathering" rounds, to the point of stalking his own teammates more than once just to get their reactions ([[ButtMonkey and getting beaten up when they find out]]).
** In the Chinese drama, [[{{Tsundere}} Tomoka]] [[FanGirl Osakada]] is actually a member of the school paper.
** WordOfGod says that [[ArrogantKungFuGuy Wakashi Hiyoshi]] is in the school paper, and it also states that when not in the tennis fields, he seems to always be on the look out for strange phenomena such as UFO's.

The counterpart to the AbsurdlyPowerfulStudentCouncil is an absurdly elaborate school paper with production values and writing quality that real commercial newspapers would envy. The activities of the AbsurdlyPowerfulStudentCouncil and other very popular students will be chronicled in minute detail by the {{school newspaper newshound}}s that staff the paper, all of whom have very serious aspirations to a career in Journalism. Quite often they will also report about events around the city or town that the story is set in. Major plot points will be revealed [[TVNeverLies -- or distorted! --]] [[WorstNewsJudgmentEver on the front page]] of the school newspaper. A few schools even have radio and/or television programs run by a "broadcasting club".
