Mike "Bogey" Boguslawski -  Veteran consumer reporter
"The people of Los Angeles and Southern California know who Bogey is," the self-appointed freedom fighter said, talking about himself in the third person. "They know his reputation, his honesty and integrity, so I decided I don't need to scream anymore." He may not have been screaming -- but he wasn't exactly whispering either -- as he talked about a segment on his upcoming show involving a woman whose house burned down. "This lady was not being given what she was entitled to. She was living out of her car. It's crazy, it's stupid," he said emphatically. "So I got on the phone and got her $181,000. That's what her house was worth, and they were draggin' this on. But I got the case settled. Yup!"
