National Enquirer TV was a 30 minute newsmagazine show starring National Enquirer magazine columnist Mike Walker. The show debuted on August 30, 1999 in many markets.

In season 1, Mike's co host in the first half was former KABC morning anchor Susan Campos. In the 2nd half of the 1st season, Campos was joined by current WOLO anchor James Hill.[dead link]

In season 2, National Enquirer TV changed its name to National Enquirer's Uncovered, and the show's host was former Sunset Beach actor Jack Maxwell. On the show, every episode includes Walker's Planet Gossip with its daily dish on the day's news. Walker always ends his commentary with "And now you know it all, almost!"

The show ended first-run episodes on July 6, 2001 with repeats lasting until August 31, 2001 when the show went off the air for good.

In popular culture[edit]

The television series SCTV predicted shows like National Enquirer TV in a 1983 skit focusing on an episode of 'National Midnight Star TV' which tackled many of the same stories.
