Roger was a journalist for the Gazette and friend of Lewis Archer. Lewis contacted him as part of his revenge plan on Gloria Price for ruining his relationship with Audrey Roberts. Lewis told him to meet him at the Rovers which was being presented with the Lancashire Leisure "Pub of the Year" award, knowing it would go belly up because Gloria had forged the confidential comment cards. As the events unfolded and the plaque passed to the Weatherfield Arms, Roger was there to write up a story which was published the following morning in the Gazette.

Credited simply as "Journalist", Roger's name was revealed in dialogue.
