Channel 6 is mostly known for the network's news program, with Anchor and on-site reporter Jane Valderamma.
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, although still calls it "Channel 6 news" during the broadcast. The News6 Anchor features the same "6 Extreme" logo as in Saints Row.
In Saints Row: The Third, Jane Valderamma voices the newscasts, but does not mention Channel 6.
The Protagonist's most direct involvement with the station occurs in Saints Row 2 in the course of the Ultor Exposed DLC, in which The Protagonist and ex-Ultor micro-biologist Tera try to convince Jane Valderamma to run a story meant to cause public outcry against the company.
