Kent Brockman

Kent Brockman (voiced by Harry Shearer) is a fictional character on the TV series The Simpsons. Brockman is a local TV news "personality" for KBBL-TV (Channel 6). He hosts the KBBL nightly news as well as "Smartline", a local current affairs show and "Eye on Springfield" which focuses mostly on Springfield's entertainment news.

On one notable episode, Brockman won the multi-million dollar state lottery jackpot. He must have lost it all at the track, since he was back to work in the next episode.

In a flashback to the 1960s, we see when he started out in television his name was Kenny Brocklestein.
