In early 2015, Iris West was hired at CCPN by editor-in-chief Eric Larkin due to her connection with The Flash. She was paired with Mason Bridge, who viewed her as an amateur blogger.[1]

Spencer Young worked alongside Iris at CCPN as a junior reporter. However, she didn't last long due to placing fame above ethics and resigned.[2]

Barry Allen also dated Linda Park, a news reporter who works here.

CCPN covered the aftermath of the S.T.A.R. Labs particle accelerator explosion.[3]

After finishing up an article on Harrison Wells, Mason Bridge was killed by the Reverse-Flash following a brief beating. Along with his murder, the Reverse-Flash fried his computer and all of his work, before taking his body away.[4]

CCPN published an article titled "Conviction Overturned! Henry Allen A Free Man!", after Dr. "Wells" confessed to murdering Nora Allen.[5]

CCPN was later attacked by the Earth-2 counterpart of the employee Linda Park, known as Dr. Light. Everyone leaves except for Iris, Eric, and Linda. When Dr. Light tells Linda her plan to take over her life, Eric tries to intervene but is killed in the process. She escapes after encountering Jay Garrick.[3]

After Eric's death, Scott Evans became the new editor-in-chief of CCPN.

After annihilating Barry with extreme ease, Zoom rushed to CCPN to broadcast the Flash's insufficiency and utter defeat to the whole city, presenting him like a sick, hunting trophy.[6]

Scott repeatedly tried to get Iris to write negative pieces about the Flash until Iris convinced him that the speedster was a hero who could be trusted.[7]

Linda wrote an article for CCPN on the Dominator invasion, which was thwarted by the various heroes from Earth-1 and Supergirl, the latter of whom took a copy of the newspaper as a souvenir.[8]

At some point after Savitar's defeat, Iris resigned from CCPN.[9]

In summer 2018, Spencer somehow caused a fire inside CCPN. Once the civilians were evacuated, XS sped inside the burning building and created twin vacuums to put out the flames.[2]
