Background


Lazlow began his career in radio by working in the 1980s as an intern for the V-rock radio station in Vice City. He then went on to become the host and head DJ of the radio station. After a decade he became the Host of West Coast Talk Radio in Los Santos and in 1998 he moved to Liberty City. There he hosted a show called “Chatterbox” on Liberty City Free Radio.


By 2001 LCFR was renamed Chatterbox FM and he and Donald Love took over the radio station. In the next year he lost his job and by 2008 he tried to start his own show in Algonquin, Liberty City but failed.


By 2013 he had moved to Los Santos to work with West Coast Talk Radio again and had his show called Chattersphere with Michelle Makes as his co-host. He is also the host of the television show Fame or Shame.


Events of GTA 5


Lazlow is first seen in GTA V in the mission Fame or Shame in which Tracey goes to the Maze Bank Arena to audition for the show. When Trevor arrives at Michael’s house in Rockford Hills he asks about where Tracey is, after which Jimmy reveals about her going to an audition. Michael and Trevor rush to the Maze Bank Arena to stop her from humiliating herself on national television.



When they arrive, they find Lazlow inappropriately dancing near Tracey during her audition. Michael and Trevor attack Lazlow after which he runs away. They follow him down to the Los Santos Storm Drain and capture a video of him forcibly dancing without any pants on to humiliate him after which they let him go.



Later, when Michael is looking for Tracey he finds her at a tattoo parlor where she went to ask Lazlow for another chance at Fame or Shame. Michael overhears Lazlow asking Tracey for a blowjob to get on the show. This angers him and he pierces Lazlow’s eyebrow, nose, and ear, tattoos a penis on his chest or back and snips off his ponytail before demanding he put Tracey on his show without asking for anything in return.


He is later seen at the premiere of Michael and Solomon’s movie Meltdown, interviewing the guests for Weazel News which seems to be his new job.
