I'm sure Barry and Cynthia are based on famous radio personalities, but at the moment I only find Barry Mann & Cynthia Weil as possible counterparts and they don't particularly fit the part.

(Daredevil: Father#2) - On Nighttime New York, Candy Cotten and Randy Firkandi reported on the city's heatwave and the city's latest serial killer, Johnny Sockets, who'd left a body on the West Side. Randy reported that crime rates had increased in parts of the city and that police commissioner Roger Smith had blamed Daredevil for pushing crime out of Hell's Kitchen. The show broke after Candy discussed a possible new super hero team. The next night, correspondent Coco Dior reported that Kristy McKaden had been murdered by Johnny Sockets at Club 69. Dior interviewed security guard Sammy Rico, who'd caught the murderer in the act before the killer ran off. They broke for commercial after announcing that Smith was being fired.

(Daredevil: Father#4 (fb) - BTS) - Smith was relieved of his duties, claiming that he was being made a scapegoat for the Sockets' killings. Gonzalez was appointed the new commissioner.
