Chrissy Beppo is the editor-in-chief of the Smallville Gazette.
Meeting Lois Lane
When Lois Lane moved to Smallville, Chrissy followed her to a cafeteria, and Lois noticed. Afterwards, Chrissy went to the town meeting to report the events. There, she and Lois met again. Chrissy clarified that she had wanted to talk to Lois for days but had no courage and that she was the idol of "her editor". After Lois asked Morgan Edge the questions, Chrissy said that she was exactly as they had described her.
The next day, Lois went to the Smallville Gazette and Chrissy admitted that she was the editor of the newspaper, so Lois asked if she could publish an article about Edge. Chrissy said that if Lois did that she would be fired and Lois said that she had already resigned. Chrissy then asked when they could start.
Investigating Morgan Edge
The next morning, Sharon Powell arrived at Gazette and told Chrissy and Lois that she could help unmask Edge. Sharon claimed that Edge is to blame for her son's disappearance. At first, Chrissy didn't believe it, but after Lois's car was blown up and a man tried to kill her, she soon realized that there was a conspiracy connected with Edge and so she decided to help Lois in the investigation.
Lois was going to do another article about Edge but Leslie Larr went to the gazette with a copy of Lois' Daily Planet contract, which included a clause preventing her from publishing an article that would "defame" Edge. As the Gazette did not have the resources to survive a lawsuit, Chrissy was reluctantly forced to leave the story. Chrissy attended the town council meeting to grant Edge the mining rights of Shuster mines, she was the only vote against.
Chrissy and Lois were in the Smallville Gazette when Derek Powell suddenly reappeared, claiming to have suffered a head injury that rendered him amnesiac for months. Although neither Chrissy nor Lois believed him, Sharon was happy to have him back so she told them there was no story to write. When Derek mysteriously disappeared again, Chrissy used his mother's phone to track him. She followed him to a facility where she saw Leslie Larr place him in a machine. So, she called Lois and informed her of the situation.
Lois, Chrissy, and Clark Kent have a meeting about the plans of Morgan Edge; Chrissy decides to research each of the individuals in Edge EnerCorp's Young Executive Program. Chrissy calls Lois after she discovers the birth name of Leslie Larr and that she was born in Smallville, causing Clark and Lois to realize that why Edge chose Smallville over the other towns that have X-Kryptonite deposits.
