The workplace sitcom "NewsRadio" explores the office politics and interpersonal relationships among the staff of WNYX NewsRadio, New York's #2 news radio station. Beleaguered news director Dave Nelson (Dave Foley) tries his best to manage a staff that includes egotistical anchors Dave McNeal (Phil Hartman) and Catherine Duke (Khandi Alexander), ambitious supervising producer Lisa Miller (Maura Tierney), who also happens to be his on/off girlfriend, hapless reporter Matthew Brock (Andy Dick), sardonic secretary Beth (Vicki Lewis), and tech-happy electrician Joe (Joe Rogan), while also answering to the station's intimidating and eccentric owner Jimmy James (Stephen Root).

Bill McNeal frequently misattributes quotes to John Keats. In Season One, Episode 10, "Rat Funeral," Hartman attributes the line "Gather ye rosebuds while ye may..." to Keats; the line is actually from "To the Virgins, to Make Most of time" written by Robert Herrick. In Season Two, Episode 11, "Station Sale," Hartman attributes the line "Yours is not to reason why, yours is but to do and die;" to John Keats, 1776; Hartman's version is actually slightly adapted from Alfred, Lord Tennyson's "Charge of the Light Brigade" published in 1870.

News Radio is a brilliant 90's television show. It's a great comedy, great actors, and is flexible (has many different forms of comedy) Never boring or dull. Once I started watching, I couldn't stop. I never miss it! Get it on your TV screen NOW!
