Love Media Incorporated, commonly referred to as Love Media, is a fictional media conglomerate in the Grand Theft Auto video game series.

Love Media is described as "The fastest growing US-run media conglomerate in the past five years". Owned by Donald Love and operating from south Bedford Point, Staunton Island, in Liberty City. Love Media controls approximately "900 radio stations, 300 television stations, 4 networks, 3 satellites, (and) 10 senators", with the Love Media brand name. Love's announcements or related commercials are evident in certain player accessed radio stations, including Head Radio, Flashback 95.6, Double Cleff FM, and Chatterbox FM. Love Media also owns the Liberty Tree, Liberty City's local newspaper. Other aquisitions and interests include pet food and health insuarance.

Donald Love is believed to had only begun doing business in Liberty City from early-2001 onwards, indicating that Love Media was quick in founding or acquiring many companies in Liberty City within months (the time period of Grand Theft Auto III is supposedly late 2001). This was done as a response to the return of Barry Harcross, a recently acquitted businessman and long time rival of Donald Love, to the city. However, several possible continuity errors are also noted: Love had apparently operated in Liberty City in 1998 (although he was seen working in a different office building) and already owns several radio stations and newspapers, contrary to what the aforementioned 2001 Liberty Tree articles claims.

After Donald Love's disappearance in GTA III, the fate of the conglomerate is left unknown.
