Channel 6 Action News is a television station in Dead Rising 2. The station sent in Rebecca Chang and a news crew to report the zombie outbreak in Fortune City, and ultimately sent in a team of helicopters to rescue the survivors.

IntroductionEdit

A newscaster reported on a beef shortage in a local area before moving on to the Terror is Reality event taking place in Fortune City, including the CURE protest led by Stacey Forsythe outside the arena. They interviewed two "average citizens" in the area and asked for their views on the controversial zombie rights organization.

Case 1-1: Big NewsEdit

After the zombie outbreak started, Rebecca Chang, lead reporter of Channel 6 News, reported live from the Fortune City Hotel. She named Chuck Greene, a contestant on the Terror is Reality game show, as the prime suspect of starting the outbreak, with an alleged video to support her claim.

Case 7-3: What Lies BeneathEdit

The newscaster made another report on the Fortune City outbreak, explaining that the zombies were confirmed to have undergone certain mutations, causing them to become more aggressive. They also reported that a rescue team was dispatched and no living survivors were found in the bunker.

The FactsEdit

Rebecca Chang offers to call the Channel 6 News Station and have them rescue the remaining survivors, but she is shot and killed by Raymond Sullivan.

Later, after retrieving the transceiver, Chuck Greene calls the station and explains who he is. He offers them the scoop of a lifetime, stating that there is a bunker full of survivors in Fortune City awaiting rescue.

Dead Rising 3Edit

A female reporter can be seen reporting on the outbreak in Los Perdidos over the television watched by Rhonda, Nick and Dick.

TriviaEdit

  • The following is Rebecca's full report, that Chuck hears as he drives into Still Creek, that was originally going to be used in Dead Rising 2: Case Zero, though in the final product, her report was cut down:
"It has been almost twelve hours since the first reports of a zombie outbreak in Las Vegas. The death toll is estimated to be over one hundred thousand, and as many as a staggering one million people may be infected. The president has initiated the Willamette act, and the government is scrambling to respond to this disaster. To ensure that the contagion does not spread, the military has set up a fifty mile perimeter outside Las Vegas. They have "shoot to kill" orders for anyone off the main roads. The number of vehicles leaving the city has trickled to a stop in the last few hours, an ominous sign that few survivors remain. With thousands of vehicles having escaped the city over the past twelve hours, military and government personnel are screening everyone at the roadblocks before allowing them to leave the quarantine area. Anyone discovered to be infected but not yet turned will be quarantined and reportedly given medical attention. Sources say that the controversial drug Zombrex, which is said to inhibit the zombification process for a period of twelve hours, is being widely administered. The fate of the quarantined remains unclear at this time. The government has issued no statements regarding where they will be taken, or what will become of them. This is Rebecca Chang reporting live from just outside Las Vegas."

  • The following is the news scroller during Rebecca's report on the outbreak during Case 1-1: Big News:
Friends and family of potential victims and survivors are urged to submit photographs of loved ones known to be in Fortune City at the time of the outbreak, so that an accurate and complete count of the potential deceased can be completed in a timely fashion. Fortune City Bridge is locked down while quarantine procedures are put into place. The National Guard reminds concerned citizens that no one will be allowed in or out of the city until isolation and sterilization procedures have been completed.
