Occupation: Television reporter
Boom mic operator
First Appearance: "Bart the Hero"

Phil is a television reporter.


When Bart stopped a robber at Chupo's Candy Store, Phil reported the story.[1]

He was later demoted to boom mic operator and was subsequently fired.

Behind the Laughter[edit]

His character was retired when Scott Christian and Kent Brockman were introduced. He does, however, make a cameo in the episode "Two Cars in Every Garage and Three Eyes on Every Fish". In his appearance in "The Call of the Simpsons" he sounds a lot like Kent Brockman.
