In the beginning of Wario-Man's story, the station has a breaking news announcement for the Diamond City Broadcasting System. While live on the air, Ken the Reporter announces their top story of the evening, the outstanding sales of Wario's latest game, which has apparently surpassed all sales records.

Due to its close proximity to Club Sugar, Diamond City Broadcasting may be spotted during the openings for certain other stories at nearby locations, including Wario's, Jimmy T.'s, Dr. Crygor's, and 9-Volt's, as well as WarioWatch.

WarioWare: Touched![edit]

In WarioWare: Touched!, Diamond Broadcasting System appears in the beginning of Mona's story. One of its broadcasts is Ear Candy, a music show hosted by Ken the Reporter under the alias "Ken the VJ", where he reports the weekly top five music artists. Vanessa watches the broadcast and is shocked when Mona takes her spot of top artist.
