Mike Walker (columnist)Mike Walker (January 16, 1946 – February 16, 2018) was an American radio personality and gossip columnist for ''The National Enquirer'', and hosted the magazine's 1999-2001 MGM-produced newsmagazine, ''National Enquirer TV''. He is also the author of the 2005 book, ''Rather Dumb: A Top Tabloid Reporter Tells CBS How to Do News.''
Between April 11, 1996 and December 2010, Walker was a guest every week on ''The Howard Stern Show'' to play "The Gossip Game." He would read four gossip stories, and the Stern crew guesses which one is false. During a 2006 Stern show appearance, Stern staff members Richard Christy and Sal Governale recorded audio of Walker's flatulence. Dubbed the "Mike Walker Fart," the audio clip was played often on the show.
Walker co-wrote with Faye Resnick the #1 ''New York Times'' best-selling book about the O.J. Simpson murder trial, ''Nicole Brown Simpson: Private Diary of a Life Interrupted'' (1994) (which as of October 1995, had reportedly sold 550,000 copies). It debuted at #1 on the non-fiction side of the ''Times'' bestseller list on November 6, 1994.
Walker had a weekly radio show on KABC, Los Angeles, California.
Walker grew up in Boston and started working for the ''Enquirer'' in 1970.
On February 16, 2018, self-styled writer and TV personality A. J. Benza tweeted that Walker had died. Provided by Wikipedia
