James McManus is a journalist, formerly of the Caprica Times, now anchor host of the wireless broadcast show "The Colonial Gang".

No fan of Laura Roslin, McManus tends to be harsh in his criticism of her, her policies and her staff. Whether this is a reflection of his real feelings towards her, or whether his is simply playing to the audience is unclear (Colonial Day).

McManus moderates the presidential election debates between President Laura Roslin and Vice President Gaius Baltar (Lay Down Your Burdens, Part I). He also announces the voting results of each ship during the Roslin vs. Baltar presidential election (Lay Down Your Burdens, Part II).


  • On modern-day Earth, the announcement of election results is a job usually reserved to senior news anchorpersons, which leads to the assumption that McManus is the most reputable news journalist within the Fleet.
