Biography

Hosted and produced by Lazlow (who also co-wrote the script along with Dan Houser), Chatterbox FM is the only radio station in the game that does not feature music. Much like the talk radio stations in the real world, Chatterbox features a format in which listeners call in with opinions, concerns, and complaints, and the host responds with their take on the situation.

The station features two long interviews with fictional Liberty City characters. The first is with Fernando Martinez—a recurring character in the GTA series—who is the founder of Fernando’s New Beginnings. He refers to his work as “a miracle”, claiming that it is “a revolutionary new way of saving your marriage”. At the end of his interview however, it is realised that he is simply playing off people’s emotions and over-charging them for an intentionally poor service, the service essentially being prostitution. This results in Lazlow throwing Fernando out the studio, accusing him of being “just a cheap pimp from upstate”. The second interview is with the pacifist, organic food-eating martial artist Reed Tucker, whom Lazlow constantly makes fun of. Towards the end of the interview, tired of being mocked, Reed attempts to karate chop the studio’s desk in half, claiming he “already visioned” it.
