    Synopsis


    Wide-eyed Wisconsinite Dave Nelson (Dave Foley) becomes the latest in a long of a news directors brought in to the hype the ratings of New York all-news radio station WNYX as Newsradio beams forth its first season. Almost immediately, Dave clashes with newscaster Lisa Miller (Maura Tierney), who thought that she was in line for Dave's job. Lisa and Dave will eventually bury the hatchet and enjoy a brief affair, but not before our hero has made the acquaintance of the rest of the WNYX staff, namely his bombastic, buck-passing boss Jimmy James (Stephen Root), preening and pompous male news anchor Bill McNeal (Phil Hartman), antagonistic female anchor Catherine Duke (Khandi Alexander), terminally nerdish reporter Matthew Brock (Andy Dick), viper-tongued, all-knowing station secretary Beth (Vicki Lewis) and mercenary maintenance man Joe Garelli (Joe Rogan). In the opener for the series' seven-episode inaugural season, Dave finds out that his first responsibility is to fire his predecessor. Other crises loom large as Bill is forced to stop smoking in the office; a late-breaking news story takes second place to a turf battle involving desk sizes; Dave is stuck with the job of handing out unfairly distributed bonuses; and Beth spectacularly turns the tables on Bill when the lascivious newsman tries to make time with her at a restaurant. The season ends with a guest appearance by Janeane Garofolo as Dave's former girlfriend--who hasn't yet been informed that she is indeed his former girlfriend! ~ Hal Erickson

      I was browsing bestbuy with my boyfriend when we both paused in front of Newsradio. I was familiar with it but had never seen a full episode and he said it was worth the $25 price to him to rewatch it so we bought it on impulse. It's a cute show with a good cast, worth the price, but I did not give it five stars because I'm not sure how I feel about the packaging. The discs are in paper sleeves stacked up and also we are three discs in and so far there are no extras.

      I’v watched News Radio in the past and thought the show was hilarious. Then I started renting it with intention to buy. After looking around Best Buy I came across the entire set and had to buy it. The boxed set it a little on the cheap side. I could have mass produced this quality in my garage. But, the discs are clean and functioning so that’s the point. Maybe that’s why it was so cheap. The 4 starts are for the quality of the packaging but the show is 5 starts.

      A favorite comedy of mine Comes with all the episodes on 9 DVDs. Subtitles only available for the first two seasons. Appears DVDs were mastered differently between first two seasons and the last three. Subtitles available for first two as mentioned before, and DVD titles are different between the sets. Good quality though, I'm really enjoying watching the series again.

      I wish this had the seasons labeled better , also wish it had behind tge scenes things like out takes. Phil Hartman and Dave Foley are classic in this show and so many actors and actresses before they were famous were on this show . Definitely worth picking up

      The quirky cast and crew of News Radio are Great! I worked at a news radio station just out of school and many strange things happened just dealing with people at the station and people interviewed. This team was just as goofy.

      To this day, this is one of my favorite sitcoms that has ever aired. The entire cast is fantastic and Phil Hartman is one of the best comic actors of my generation. He is dearly missed.

      My dad is hard to shop for but he seems to like it when I find old shows we watched together on DVD. I bought myself a copy too!

      This show is pretty good. A young Joe Rogan, Andy Dick and Phil Hartman in his last role. Show can be funny at times.
