How to Fix Control the Narrative Quest in NBA 2K23

To fix the bug preventing you from completing the NBA 2K23 Control the Narrative quest is to go to the local news station and have an interview. Basically, go to One City Plaza and follow the road leading east, then turn the corner. You should see the Local News sign on your right. Walk in, and a cutscene should start playing immediately. Just complete the interview, and the quest should complete. This seems to fix the problem for most people. It appears that the game expects you to go and have the interview, even though you get no mark on the map or anything like that. That’s basically what the bug is, come to think of it. We go the marker just fine.

And there you have it, that’s how you fix the NBA 2K23 Control the Narrative quest bug. If you have any other fixes that also work, let us know in the comments. I’ve seen people also mention that you need to complete the Sports Illustrative Cover quest, the one where you talk to Ashley, and that will complete the quest, too. However, we are not able to verify this. On the other hand, going to the local news station definitely works. This is just one of many interestingly broken quests in this game. Another is Welcome to the League, which we cover in our NBA 2K23 Welcome to the League not Progressing Fix guide.
