WEBG covered Peter Declan's impending execution for allegedly murdering his wife, Camille. However, after Jason Brodeur's crimes, including orchestrating Camille's murder, were exposed, WEBG reported his arrest, Brodeur Chemical coming under investigation for toxic waste dumping, new details regarding Camille's death, and Peter's exoneration.
WEBG reported Oliver's arrest on suspicion of being The Hood.
Around Christmas, WEBG broadcasted police commissioner Brian Nudocerdo's (false) statement that The Hood was responsible for a recent string of murders and message to the citizens of Starling City to aid the authorities in arresting him.
The next night, WEBG did a coverage of a hostage crisis where the Dark Archer kidnapped five people and threatened to kill them unless the Hood gave himself up.
