Galaxy News Network, or GNN, was a pre-War media corporation that ran both a Galaxy News Radio station and a television channel.


The Galaxy News Radio headquarters was in Washington, D.C., while the headquarters of GNN's television network is located in the Commonwealth in what is now known as Gunners plaza. It was a pro-government network that described the execution of a Canadian insurgent by United States soldiers in power armor as "Our dedicated boys keep the peace in newly annexed Canada." GNN's logo was a rocket going around a planet on an orbit. Its slogan was, "The best programming in the galaxy."

In Concord, a city near Boston, there were advertisements for this network at a bus stop. The advertisements promoted front line coverage of the war and evening weather reports by Horris Aimes at 6:30.

The pre-War GNN news and advertisement were broadcast even after the War, probably by automated equipment.[1]

Galaxy News offered news through televised newsreels (as seen in the Fallout intro) and through radio stations such as Galaxy News Radio in Washington D.C. It is unknown if their news was also made available in other media.

The Galaxy News Radio tower in Washington DC is now run by the DJ Three Dog, who plays tunes in the big band genre from the 1930s, 1940s and 1950s and announces news to the people of Capital Wasteland.


Behind the scenesEdit

  • The Galaxy News logo appears originally in the introductory movie for Fallout (the original game in the series). The popularity of Fallout (along with the distinctive style of the logo) led to the logo's adaptation into the brand symbol for Interplay, the original publisher of the game.
  • The abbreviation of GNN is a direct parody of CNN, an American news network.
