History

CatCo first drawing.

CatCo Worldwide Media was founded by Cat Grant some time in the early 2010s, quickly growing into a powerful news outlet in National City.[1][2] Much like on Earth-38, Cat stepped down as CEO and owner by 2018. Lena Luthor bought CatCo in 2018, later selling it to Andrea Rojas a year later.

Kara Danvers awakened on Earth-Prime in a panic since her last memory was of the Battle at the Dawn of Time. Ultimately, she checked her laptop to see what happened the night before to see a Catco article about Supergirl battling White Martians.[3]

Batwoman outs herself in an interview with CatCo.

At some point, the company was sold to Lena Luthor and then Obsidian North, transferring it to Andrea Rojas's ownership.[4]

In January 2020, Kara Danvers did an exposé on Batwoman as a favor and assisted in her coming out in an interview for the Winter 2020 edition of CatCo Magazine in its featured article; giving closeted lesbians an idol to encourage them.[5] Later, Mary Hamilton uses the magazine cover to confirm her thoughts that Kate is Batwoman.[6]

Reporters from different media, including Catco, went to McCulloch Technologies because Joseph Carver summoned them; he threatened a defamation lawsuit against The Central City Citizen and the different outlets wanted to cover the news.[7]

A manifesto against Obsidian Platinum was found by Franklin and William Dey moments after an assassination attempt on Andrea Rojas was thwarted by Supergirl.[4]

Querl Dox watched a video made by CatCo of Dreamer battling a Dominator before he received a call from Kara.[8]

William Dey does research into Eve Teschmacher using the company computers.[9] Later, Alex Danvers breaks into the company to find William because he is missing.[10]

Because Andrea had linked CatCo with Obsidian North, when Obsidian Platinum failed, CatCo would have gone bankrupt also with Obsidian North, but Andrea falsified the sale of the company to her father to save CatCo. Meanwhile, to justify Kara's absence, Nia tells Andrea that Kara is doing an article with Cat Grant.[11]

Andrea told her reporters that CatCo would be the hub on all things Lex during his trial, assigning William and Nia to cover the courtroom. Since no one was allowed to enter the courtroom, William watched the case from CatCo.[12]

The day after the trial, Lex on the morning news, giving an interview. Later that night, CatCo had an article about Lex taking possession of Luthor Corp.[13]
