[[WMG: All the stories seen on the TV show are actually novels written by Miss Emily]]
In one episode Miss Emily confesses that she's writing a detective novel and that she took the job at INS to gain life experience. Extrapolating from that, the supernatural stories seen on the show were written by Miss Emily based on her coworkers. After she met Kolchak, who told her of the events in Las Vegas and Seattle, she decided to write a series of UrbanFantasy novels with Kolchak as the lead character and a Miss Emily AuthorAvatar that everybody at INS trusts and likes.

The monsters run a full gammut of insanity, there's never any resolution or even basic answers beyond what Kolchak can try and piece together, and no matter how weird things get the authorities always do their best to shut Kolchak up. If that isn't the New World of Darkness, I'll eat my hat.

[[WMG: The opening to the original series is Kolchak writing something in code before the BigBad kills him or he's taken away for "knowing too much"]]

* NOTE: I've only seen the first season, and this is just based on that, so I'm open to the possibility that what are omnipresent features of every episode I've seen so far might stop happening with such regularity in later stories, which would go against my theory. Then again, that might just be a sign that his delusion has gotten more severe.

Added DiffLines:

[[WMG: Kolchak and Supernatural exist in the same universe]]

Kolchak was a hunter. He worked as a reporter but to gain information he often used the same methods the Winchesters and other hunters use by pretending to be other people. Doctors, Health Inspectors and so on. Carl was more than a reporter. He was a hunter trying to expose the truth to the world but he always came up short on the evidence in the end.

[[WMG: Kolchak is insane]]
I know it's a StockEpilepticTrees, but hear me out. Kolchak always goes in with a preconceived notion about what the supernatural menace is, and of course he turns out to be right... [[ThroughTheEyesOfMadness from his perspective]]. Nobody ever corroborates his story even if they ([[ThroughTheEyesOfMadness according to what Kolchak remembers]]) saw it too, and [[OnceAnEpisode at the end of every episode]] all the evidence is always mysteriously destroyed. ''He'' clearly remembers something supernatural happening, but neither other witnesses nor the physical evidence can back him up on that. Everyone he knows very clearly expresses the fact that they think he's insane, but we the viewers know he isn't and that they're just [[JerkAss Jerk Ass]]es because we saw the monsters too. But then, the show is told entirely from Kolchak's perspective, with articles written by Kolchak about what he remembers seeing as the FramingDevice. We're just seeing what Kolchak remembers seeing, whether or not it was ever actually there.

** Harry didn't always live in Chicago, and knew about the supernatural before then. Now, Murph? She's a good candidate. Maybe her father even dealt with Kolchak at some point.
