News broadcasting is a type of news media in which various news events and other information are broadcast via television, radio, or internet. While several forms of news broadcasting are used in the Death Note series, television broadcasting is the most prevalent, as well as the most significant.

Plot[]

While various news networks cover the events involving Kira, Sakura TV, specifically Hitoshi Demegawa, is the first to act as representatives of Kira, constantly portraying him in a positive light.

When it is deemed that Sakura TV is representing Kira for selfish purposes, trying to make a profit, and even making false promises that Kira will one day appear, Teru Mikami, acting as Kira, kills off Hitoshi Demegawa and his "followers" during an airing of Sakura TV's new program, Kira's Kingdom.

Almost immediately after his death, many news networks begin clamoring for Kira's attention, asking him to let them represent him, and arguing that they are the best network to do so. Eventually, NHN is chosen to represent Kira with Kiyomi Takada acting as Kira's official spokesperson. After her death, news networks immediately line up once more, petitioning for Kira's approval to let them represent him.
