Offsetting Miguel’s gravitas and sarcasm is the irreverence and defiant attitude of Emma Hunter. Enthusiastic, and a person of interest in several ongoing investigations, Emma represents the low-attention-span of BuzzFeed-style new media, which sometimes puts her in conflict with Miguel.
Our old-school newsman, Miguel delivers ridiculous stories with a sardonic tone and raised-eyebrow. A journalist in the rich tradition of Cronkite and McAvoy, Miguel always asks himself three things when considering a potential story: is it important, is it properly researched, and will Drake like it?
Marilla is our foreign correspondent, mostly because she has an accent. Unflappable in the face of the stories she’s forced to report on, she channels Christiane Anampour and the BBC News cadence, which makes everything she says seem way more important than it actually is.
Aisha is our domestic reporter, covering everything from local to national news. Oh, and she’s also killing it in her personal life right now. She’s good at the news and incidentally, everything else.
The Beaverton’s “resident provocateur” Donavon is here to challenge attitudes, get in your face, and audition for his own show on Vice. Donavon puts himself in the middle of every story, so the audience can finally see things from the perspective of a 40 year old white dude who acts like a 20 year old white dude.
The Beaverton’s financial expert, and a Bay street washout, Laura covers all manner of business news with total dedication to the plight of the businessman. A younger, even sexier Kevin O’Leary, Laura will help our viewers understand the economic realities of the world around them… for a price.
