Warren Shaw is/was the host of Retrospective, the top-rated news program of the Trinity Age. A historian by training, Shaw's folksy, conversational demenour was an important part of the show's appeal.
Shaw died in 2117, shortly after interviewing Matthias Zweidler. Rather than seek out a new host for Retrospective, parent company OBC instead commissioned an advanced AI simulation of Shaw. Some commentators found this ghastly, but the simulation proved sufficiently faithful to maintain the show's ratings, much to the consternation of Cori Heisler.
