Ana Shioji (シオジ アナ Shioji Ana) seems to be the roving reporter of Bushi TV and often reports about the most spectacular things happening in Tokyo, like Yaiba Kurogane's repeated battles against Takeshi Onimaru and one of Kaitou Kid's heists.
An ecstatic blonde reporter similar to her appears in the manga version of "Midnight Crow", reporting from an open helicopter like Ana often does. It's never confirmed whether it's supposed to be her again, though.
Ana Shioji's cameraman
A so far unnamed man who seems to be really into his job, following Ana Shioji everywhere she goes to, no matter how dangerous it may be - even if it is into the stomach of a giant anglerfish, sporting scuba gear.
Hiroshi Kome (米 ヒロシ Kome Hiroshi) is a studio reporter interviewing Kumo-Otoko about the next steps in Takeshi Onimaru's plan.
A blonde man with glasses present at several different heists of Kaitou Kid, often interviewing inspector Ginzo Nakamori. During the TOFU Department Store heist it's confirmed that he works for Bushi TV.

- Ana Shioji in Yaiba is replaced by a reporter looking similar, but way older than her in Kenyuu Densetsu Yaiba.
- In Magic Kaito 1412, Ana Shioji, the unnamed blonde reporter wearing glasses and the reporter in the helicopter from Midnight Crow are all replaced by the same female, brown-haired reporter (looking like a significantly younger version of the one from Kenyuu Densetsu Yaiba who is also never named), working for the Nippon News Report. She and her co-host seemingly re-appear in Detective Conan Movie 19, Sunflowers of Inferno.
