Cat Grant worked at the Daily Planet as editor-in-chief Perry White's personal assistant until she had the opportunity to write a piece for the gossip column of the paper. After working as a gossip columnist for sometime, Cat quit the Daily Planet to start her media conglomerate, CatCo Worldwide Media.
Since Superman emerged as a vigilante in Metropolis, the Daily Planet's popularity skyrocketed, with the superhero being featured on the cover of 54% of their stories. Photojournalist James Olsen took the 1st photo of Superman while reporter Lois Lane was the first to interview the superhero for the Daily Planet.
After the emergence of Supergirl in National City, numerous reporters, including those from the Daily Planet, were attempting to obtain an exclusive with her. However, Cat ultimately obtained the exclusive and "scooped" the Daily Planet with the revelation that Supergirl and Superman were cousins.
Siobhan Smythe planned to sell a video of Supergirl letting an alien criminal go free to Perry, and use the story to be hired by the Daily Planet as a reporter. However, once Cat learned of her betrayal, she later convinced Perry not to hire Siobhan.
