Kent Brockman is the local news anchor slash celebrity on The Simpsons. Kent hosts the Channel 6 weekday news in addition to "Smartline," "Eye on Springfield," and "My Two Cents." Kent also won the state lottery in an episode, but continues to work as a news anchor.
Oh we have lots of names for these people. Bums, deadbeats, losers, scums of the earth, we'd like to sweep these people into the gutter, or if already in the gutter, to some other out of the way place. Oh we have our reasons. They're depressing, their ragged clothes, they're crazy, they smell bad. So every year on one conscience salving day, we toss these people a bone. A turkey bone. And that's supposed to make it all better.Kent Brockman
Good evening, again, Springfield. Krusty the Clown, the beloved idol of countless tots, now nothing more than a common, alleged criminal.
