Overview[]

Channel 6 is mostly known for the network's news program, with Anchor and on-site reporter Jane Valderamma.

In Saints Row, Newscasts are reported by Jack Armstrong, who does not mention Channel 6. The only reference to a channel 6 in the game is an Anchor bearing the logo "6 Extreme".[1]

In Saints Row 2, Jane Valderamma voices the newscasts, and explicitly mentions "Channel 6 news" at the end of each one. During Appointed Defender, Jane's television newscast contains a "Channel 6 Extreme news" logo[2], although still calls it "Channel 6 news" during the broadcast. The News6 Anchor features the same "6 Extreme" logo as in Saints Row.[3]

In Saints Row: The Third, Jane Valderamma voices the newscasts, but does not mention Channel 6.

Playa's most direct involvement with the station occurs in Saints Row 2 in the course of the Ultor Exposed DLC, in which Playa and ex-Ultor micro-biologist Tera try to convince Jane Valderamma to run a story meant to cause public outcry against the company.
