In addition to the main, playable cast of Grand Theft Auto, the radio characters also shine and tend to be another connection point in-between games, or in a few cases, continuities.

[[folder:Introduced in ''III'']]

!!Chatterbox FM

->''I'm a nice person, I deserve to do well! You know, people like me, we've only betrayed friends once or twice, and they had it coming!''

->'''Voiced by:''' Lazlow Jones

Perhaps the only character to appear in every major installment of Grand Theft Auto, Lazlow is introduced in ''III'' as host of Chatterbox FM, where he is bombarded with a colorful array of guests and insane people. Lazlow would often mention his stint on a rock station -- V-Rock from ''Vice City'', having taken over from its former DJ, Couzin Ed (as heard on ''Vice City Stories'', where he was an intern). After he quit in a rage, Lazlow eventually landed a job as a DJ of WCTR's ''Entertaining America'' in ''San Andreas'', where after only two shows, he also quit. By the time ''IV'' took place, Lazlow was the washed-up host of Integrity 2.0, trying, failing, and desperately making a comeback. As of ''V'', his career seems to be looking up again, with him hosting the RealityShow ''Fame or Shame'' and having returned to WCTR with a new show, ''Chattersphere''.

Lazlow is voiced by real life radio personality Lazlow Jones, who wrote most of the radio scripts from III onwards.

-> For tropes relating to his [[spoiler: first onscreen]] role in ''VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoV'', see his entry in this [[Characters/GrandTheftAutoVCharactersFromGrandTheftAutoIV character sheet]].
* AdamWesting
* ButtMonkey: In Vice City Stories, as intern to Couzin Ed. Ed would frequently berate and humiliate Lazlow in-between the songs.
* DeadpanSnarker: It wouldn't be Lazlow without him mocking his guests, or himself.
* {{Flanderization}}: Ignoring the chronological order of the games, Lazlow gets more pathetic in each new game released. Lazlow starts off as the OnlySaneMan in ''III'', mocking the sea of lunatics who call him. ''Vice City'' had him as a fairly normal, if egotistical, rock host. In ''San Andreas'', he had no bite and was mostly at the mercy of his guests. By ''IV'', he was a sad wash-up, and in ''V'', he's bitter and angry, in a job he hates, with a co-host he hates, in a town he hates. He spends the majority of his segment arguing with his coworker, on the defensive about his life choices. And to cap it all off, [[spoiler:when he actually appears in ''V''[='=]s story, it's so he can getting physically humiliated -- ''twice'' -- by the main characters]].
* HatesTheJobLovesTheLimelight: As shown in ''San Andreas'', ''Liberty City Stories'', and ''III'', he tries to love the job and likes being on the radio. His grief mostly comes from the callers and interviewees.
* HeWhoMustNotBeSeen: [[spoiler:Until ''V''.]]
* KlingonPromotion: In ''San Andreas'', after the original ''Entertaining America'' host is shot on air, Lazlow takes the spot.
* TheLastDJ: Believes himself to be this.
* OnlySaneMan: Tries to run his shows normally, but is swamped by insane guests and callers. By ''GTA'' standards, Lazlow is fairly tame... at least at first.
* SelfDeprecation: You would ''think'' Lazlow would make himself into a Canon Stu, being the producer of the radio shows in the series in RealLife, but even in ''III'', when he had the most virtual air time, the best he could do was snark about his situation. By ''IV'', he has turned his character into a deluded, [[SmallNameBigEgo egotistical]] {{jerk|ass}} who believes himself to be TheLastDJ, and is genuinely surprised and offended when people call him out on it. And in ''V'', [[spoiler:when he finally appeared as an in-story character, it was so he could be forced to dance in his underwear and get a dick tattooed on either his chest or back]]. Plus, he gave some of his RealLife buddies roles on the shows.
* SeparatedByACommonLanguage: In ''San Andreas'', Lazlow and OG Loc have two very [[GangBangers different]] [[APartyAlsoKnownAsAnOrgy definitions]] of "gang banging".
-->"Gang banging? I never really understood that. I mean, other guys in the room while you're... ''ugh!''"
* SmallNameBigEgo: Becomes this come ''IV''.

!!!Fernando Martinez

->'''Voiced by:''' Frank Chavez

Fernando is introduced on Chatterbox in GTAIII as the founder of Fernando's New Beginnings, where where husbands relieve the stress of married life by getting a mistress, to Lazlow's disgust and accusations of being just a cheap pimp from Upstate Liberty. Fernando's career, like Lazlow's, started in Vice City Stories where he was the co-host of Emotion 98.3 alongside Lionel Makepeace. By 1986 he became sole host of the station, but was kicked out for unknown reasons where he eventually became a temporary host of the Lonely Hearts show on San Andreas's WCTR. By 2008 he became the host of Vice City FM, and has admitted to having several children, being a registered sex offender not allowed within 200 yards of a school, and having a sexually transmitted infection. As of 2013, he has returned to San Andreas and WCTR, hosting his own segment ''The Fernando Show''.
* AllGuysWantCheerleaders: Was arrested for trying to take advantage of a cheerleader while working at a school.
* AlternateContinuity: One of the few signs that the radio stations still work on the principle even in the HD era; In ''III'', Lazlow exposes him as a Caucasian fraudster from upstate Liberty, while in ''V'' he claims to be a former illegal immigrant, having come to America the courageous way; see below.
* AnythingThatMoves: ''Anything''.
* BoomerangBigot: Believes that the immigration hole needs to be plugged. After all, he came to America the manly way -- by outrunning the gunboats.
* CatchPhrase: "''I, am Fernando Martinez''" and "''I guarantee it''".
* DoubleEntendre: He gives financial and political advice in the form of thinly-veiled sexual metaphors.
* IDidntMeanToTurnYouOn: When Sue Murry gets angry during her interview, he admits that seeing her flustered and sweaty turns him on. She immediately storms out of the studio.
* LatinLover: So he says. He's more like a borderline sex addict.
* NoodleIncident: In San Andreas, he briefly mentions being "chased out" of Vice City and alludes to a "Five Alarm Fire".
** In ''V'', he mentions that he was "a martyr for the justice and truth that lives in the heart of every man and woman" when he was "unjustly imprisoned on entirely unproven allegations''. He elaborates no further, though a few hints are dropped that he may have been involved with an underage girl.
* SerenadeYourLover: Fernando references this.
-->"Have you noticed how popular synthesizers are getting? It's not the same as a lonely man with a pony tail, singing of his love on a guitar. At the door of a fair maid's hacienda. But it is not far short."
* StrawMisogynist: He's been in classes to stop thinking of women as objects for his insatiable lust; he relapses ''constantly'', though he ApologizesALot for it.
* TeacherStudentRomance: He finds it a DoubleStandard that people applaud a boy that scores with a female teacher, but when a male teacher tries to "teach a cheerleader in the ways of love", they're arrested.
* ThirdPersonPerson

!!Double Clef FM

!!!Morgan Merryweather
->''[[ClassicalMusic You are listening to the fat lady sing on Double Clef FM]]. I'm Morgan Merryweather, but please, [[GratuitousItalian call me the maestro.]]''

Liberty Tree entertainment correspondent and DJ of Double Clef FM. Makes cameos on Vice City's K-Chat and on the Liberty City Story's Double Clef FM.
* KnowNothingKnowItAll: Attempts to appear intellectual through references to classical culture that he often gets wrong.


!!!MC Codebreaker
->''101.1 MSX in your manor, sound of Liberty City's finest''

The energetic co-host of the Drum & Bass station MSX FM (MSX 98 in LibertyCityStories). He constantly raps over the tracks mixed by the off screen DJ Timecode.
* AsHimself
* MotorMouth: Going on non-stop for 25 minutes in III with only short pauses in-between his lines is quite an accomplishment. To likely tone down the fact that this trait made him TheScrappy to some, his rapping is far less energetic and frequent in LCS.

!!Flashback FM

->''So my friends say 'Toni, do you remember the [[TheSeventies 70's]] and [[TheEighties 80's]]?' and I say, [[NostalgiaFilter well I certainly don't remember anything since then!]]''

Introduced as the DJ of Flashback FM in ''III'', later appears as the Host of Flash FM in Vice City and Vice City Stories.
* TheHedonist


[[folder:Introduced in ''Vice City'']]

!!VCPR (Vice City Public Radio)

!!!Maurice Chavez
->''Six years ago I was a clown, and now I'm a success! Ha ha, think about it. Imagine where I can be in 10 years. I can achieve anything!''

->'''Voiced by:''' Philip Anthony Rodriguez

In 1980, Maurice Chavez worked as a clown in birthday parties, corporate functions, juvenile correctional facilities, bar mitzvas and Go-Go bars. After constant failed acting auditions and getting work as a fluffer in a sex-education video, he considered getting a sex change before he was discovered and became a radio personality on Vice City's VCPR. He hosted the "healthy" public debate show ''Pressing Issues'' in 1984, and by 1986, won several awards and was granted extended showtime on the radio. Though he tries to run his shows normally, they often become out of control due to the insane guests, and Chavez would snap violently. It is revealed in ''Vice City Stories'' that he had an affair with VCPR host Michelle Montanius and had a child with her, but refused to give her the money for the abortion.
* BewareTheNiceOnes: He hits a guy in the face with a paperweight after the guy wouldn't stop being an ass.
* ButtMonkey: Revealed in part thanks to extreme right-wing Congressman Alex Shrub.
-->'''Maurice:''' I grant you, 1980 was not a highlight in my career; but [[ITakeOffenceToThatLastOne I NEVER applied for a sex change!]]
* DeliveryGuy: His experience with Bryony Craddock, one of his guests during his show's VCPR segment days in ''Vice City Stories'', puts him off going near a vagina ever again.
* HatesTheJobLovesTheLimelight: Much like Lazlow, he loves being on the radio but really loathes the guests on his show.
* OnlySaneMan: Maurice has at least tried to run healthy debate shows with serious topics such as public safety, morality and positive thinking and is shown to be a history major. When he snaps though...

!!!Pastor Richards
->'''Voiced by:''' David Green

Borderline-insane [[TheFundamentalist fundamentalist]] "pastor" whose stated goal is to collect donations from his followers to build a rocket ship/statue of himself and then colonize Saturn with everyone who gave generously enough, leaving the sinful world behind to build a utopia. His ''real'' goal is to fleece as much money from his flock as possible, then use it to build a mansion in UsefulNotes/{{Hawaii}} and live out the rest of his days with his mistresses. He's on the Morality segment, and he makes a small visual cameo at the beginning of the game on Cortez's yacht.
* ArtisticLicenseAstronomy: Unless he's looking to colonize UsefulNotes/TheMoonsOfSaturn, he probably won't have much success building his dreamed-of society on the surface of a ''gas giant''. Justified, given that he's planning to steal all the money for his own personal use, which means he didn't care one bit about coming up with a feasible plan.
* BerserkButton: Don't be naked and loving in his presence unless you want an emasculating gunshot wound.
* CorruptChurch: Between his theology (a parody of "prosperity gospel" taken to the point of lionizing greed as a virtue) and the fact that he's shamelessly ripping off his followers, he seems to be based on any number of infamous televangelists from TheEighties.
* EyeBeams: He plans on installing these in his statue/spaceship in order to smite all of the world's sinners.
* TheFundamentalist
* {{Greed}}
* InsaneTrollLogic: He seems to be based on this.
* OurFounder

!!!B.J. Smith
->'''Voiced by:''' Lawrence Taylor
A guest on K-Chat. Tight end for the Vice City Mambas, this guy has a whole lot of anger issues and just loves hurting people; that seems to include taking their cars away, as you take over his 'import/export' business as part of asset gathering. He returns in ''V'', at least in name, having a Recreation Center in Los Santos named in his honour.
* JerkJock

!!!Michaela Carapadis
->'''Voiced by:''' Mary Birdsong

A guest on K-Chat. A radical feminist who wrote a book that talked about the "horrors" of man, officially titled "Being and Seeing, From Freud to the Building Sites, a Woman's Journey into the Male Psyche". While being interviewed it is implied Michaela takes on a manly appearance.

'''Voiced by:''' Randy Pearlstein

A roided-up action film star, known for appearing in the Evacuator trilogy: ''Evacuator'', ''Exploder'' and ''Special Needs Cop''. Once highly regarded, his gradual slide into irrelevance following the end of the Cold War made him incredibly delusional, culminating in him accidentally killing ''Entertaining America'' host Billy Dexter on air and had to serve time on death row from 1992 until his parole in 2007, only to get into trouble again with the law three years later, for which he served a smaller sentence. After his release in 2013, Jack, more mentally unhinged than ever, began working in his own reality show "[[DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment Jack Howitzer is Jack Howitzer in Jack Howitzer]]".
* ActionHero: Used to play such roles back in his heyday.
* BaldOfAwesome: He sported one throughout his career, as shown in his first actual appearance in ''V''.
* CreatorBreakdown: InUniverse, he suffers one due to his declining popularity as well as a paradigm shift following the end of the Cold War. Come ''San Andreas'', he believes the Soviets could still attack despite their breakup a year prior to the game, and culminates in him accidentally killing Billy. After his first release from prison, he's still unhinged, and uses his sock puppet Ho Chi Sock to cope.
* MeaningfulName
* NoCelebritiesWereHarmed: Based off of Creator/ArnoldSchwarzenegger and Creator/SylvesterStallone.
* NoodleIncident: Nothing is mentioned as to what crime got him a second stint behind bars, although this may be related to his accidental murder of an infant.
* PatrioticFervor: He plays up this trope UpToEleven, both in the movies and in his real life.
* ShellShockedVeteran: Combines this with PhonyVeteran, as while he is an actor who has never served in the army, he certainly acts like he has.

The paranoid DJ of East Coast Hip-Hop radio station Playback FM.
* ZeroPercentApprovalRating: Almost every in-between banter has listeners complaining about his self-righteous on-air rants. Even the otherwise good-natured Julio G of Radio Los Santos had something to say about him.

* OnlySaneMan: He encourages the gangs of Los Santos to find better ways to solve problems and sees GangstaRap as a form of escape. This makes him one of the saner guys in the entire series, especially when compared to the other [=DJs=] in the game. [[spoiler:During the riots he even expresses his more caring side, advising people to keep out of the streets.]]
* OOCIsSeriousBusiness: Despite the music he works with, he rarely swears on the show and is a NiceGuy overall, which lets [[PrecisionFStrike his reaction]] to [[spoiler:the riots show just how serious the situation has gotten]].

!!!!Bobby June
->'''Voiced by:''' Trish Suhr

Hostess of ''Bless Your Heart'', a program that shares Southern cooking recipes, lifestyle-affirming far-right politics, and tips on creative use of coupons.
* [[AmbiguouslyBrown Ambiguously Orange]]: Her and her producer, but it's a very [[BlatantLies ''natural'']] shade of orange.
* CatchPhrase: "[[TitleDrop Bless your heart(s)!]]", repeated ''ad nauseam'', at least thirty or forty times within a typical episode.
* ComfortFood: Insists that grotesquely unhealthy fried food is actually healthy, and it's really [[InsaneTrollLogic those "nutri-Nazis" stressing people out about proper diet that causes heart disease]].
** BaconAddiction
--->"Bacon is God's way of tellin' us he ''loves'' us!"
** DeepFriedWhatever: Candy bars, butter sticks, cigarettes, onions, hairspray, pets... Bobbi will try them all. She's even mentioned deep-frying Sprunk in the past.

* NightmareFuelStationAttendant: Describes cheerfully how, because of her anti-vaccine stance, one of her stepchildren died in agony from polio at the age of seven.

!!!Beyond Insemination
!!!!Duane Earl

->'''Voiced by:''' Danny [=McBride=]

Animal husbandry expert, rodeo champion, and host of ''Beyond Insemination'', a show that has far more to do with Earl's own opinions of what constitutes a real man than any sort of farming advice.
* AntiRoleModel: Recalls his days as a grade-school soccer coach teaching his students to do anything to win, from taking steroids to gambling to deliberately injuring opponents.
* BigFancyHouse: Duane's description of his estate (including an enormous fish tank in his bedroom), which somewhat negates his claims that he's still just a humble country boy.
