We assure you we will stay on air as long as we can. Continuing our around the clock coverage of the event that is sweeping the nation... by all accounts the dead seem to be leaving their graves... returning to life... and feeding on the... flesh... of the living. Yes, you heard me right. The eye witness reports from across the globe have all been confirmed. You've seen the stunning footage. There is no denying this horrendous news. It is the humble opinion of this newsman, that we may as well be witnessing... the end of the world as we know it.
―The newscaster's broadcast report.[src]

This newscaster is a survivor of the outbreak in the Pilot of Image Comics' The Walking Dead.


Location Unknown[]

Nothing is known about this man's life prior to or as the outbreak began, except that he was a newscaster.



At the onset of the outbreak, this man delivers around the clock news coverage and warns that the dead have begun rising from the grave and feasting on the living. Rick doesn't believe him and thinks the news is just a "War of the Worlds ripoff".

Following the outbreak, this man's fate is unknown.


  • This newscaster is the first character seen in The Walking Dead franchise as a whole.
  • In the original pitch, this newscaster bared a resemblance to the newscaster from The Night of the Living Dead.[1]
