SAN News, (presumably standing for San Andreas Network), is a news network appearing in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas. It may be based on KTLA 5 News or KCAL 9 News. SAN News has no ground operations unit in Xbox and Xbox 360 versions, instead, VCN is its placeholder and this is evidenced by the VCN markings on the Newsvan.


The network has its own helicopter, the News Chopper, which can be seen flying alongside the Police Maverick and around the player when a four star wanted level is achieved. The helicopter doesn't affect anything, but Carl can still shoot it down.

For on-the-ground operations they use the Newsvan but, unlike the News Chopper, it is not deployed on the streets based on the wanted level, and can be found driving about the various streets and highways.


It is never said what else the station broadcasts or where the television station is, but a Newsvan can be found beside the Missionary Hill Radio Tower on Missionary Hill.


SAN News could appear in Grand Theft Auto V.
