Not to be confused with The Reporter.

The Journalist is a character in the Grand Theft Auto series who appears as a minor character in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas.


The journalist works for an unknown newspaper, possibly the San Andreas Post, and is to meet a reporter at the end of Yacht Harbor in Santa Maria Beach, Los Santos during the mission Snail Trail.

However, the reporter is being followed by Carl Johnson, who kills both of them shortly after his arrival.

Mission Appearances


  • The journalist does not use a unique model, and instead uses a generic pedestrian model (wealthy Hispanic), like many minor characters in the 3D Universe.
  • If the player gets too close to the journalist, he will be spooked. Then he will attempt to attack the player with a pistol.
