The broadcasting network hosts news, weather, and stock reports for Chicago and San Francisco. WKZ TV updates players on the city's conflicts and crimes as they progress through the game - like when Aiden or Marcus Holloway commit a significant crime or action. WKZ TV owns a fleet of News Vans for broadcasting and News Trucks (Media Broadcast Trucks in Watch Dogs 2) for advertising.
- WKZ TV is based on CNN, as evidenced by the coloring of its logo and branding. It is also be based on Fox News to an extent.
- There are times that the news will bring up Aiden and Marcus Holloway as most wanted criminals for a brief period of time. At this point, all Pedestrians will recognize them and prepare to call 911, resulting in a Police Pursuit if they are not stopped.
- Usually after completing a mission, an unnamed newswoman will report what the player has done, usually citing DedSec.
