John Beard, the former real-life anchorman for the Los Angeles Fox affiliate, is used as the local Orange County news anchor throughout AD. Fox 6 is constantly covering the Bluth family antics in a salacious way, but it's Beard that makes this gag stand out. It's all about his serious, booming broadcaster voice saying ridiculous lines and puns ("A delicious whodunit, after this," "It's called a cup-a-keno, and wait 'til you see what it costs!"). When Beard ends up at a restaurant where Michael and Kitty are fighting, he mutters to himself, "Don't be a part of the story, don't be a part of the story" as he exits.
