We are going live in 64 minutes, either with the members of the first family or with me wildly speculating on why the grants are suddenly unavailable for an interview they committed to weeks ago. It's up to you!

— Noah to Olivia Pope, Mama Said Knock You Out

Noah Baker is a broadcast journalist for for the news network BNC.


The character of Noah Baker is a minor recurring character of the series first appeared in the season three episode "Mama Said Knock You Out" of Scandal.


Noah was the first broadcast journalist/interviewer that interviewed "The First Family" after Fitz announced his reelection (as well as after his assassination attempt two years ago). The interview had been setup for weeks and advertised on his network. It almost didn't happen due to a scandalous revelation between First Lady Mellie Grant and Governor Andrew Nichols. But Olivia Pope to the rescue gave one of her infamous speeches to the kids (Jerry & Karen) as well as Mellie & Fitz so Noah got his chance to interview the first family. (Mama Said Knock You Out)
