Summer Gleeson is a lead female investigative reporter in Gotham City. She also doubles as the host of the Gotham Insider which reports on mainly tabloid news. In Gotham, the news never runs out for Gleeson. She has conducted live interviews like one with Roland Dagget, only to be interrupted by Clayface and Batman. Gleeson also covered local events, such as a 'Save the University' fundraiser held by Gotham State Univeristy and the short lived Joker's Wild Casino. Despite appearances, Gleeson has also been at the hem of close encounters with the criminal fringe. She has been kidnapped by the Ninja, Joker and Lock Up.
After years in the field, Gleeson presumably was promoted to a head position and was replaced on the Insider by Jack Ryder, though she still reports from time to time. On a Halloween night, Scarecrow and his Skeleton Crew stormed the studio at the GNC building and held Gleeson and the news crew hostage until Batman, Robin, and Batgirl intervened. One night, Gleeson reported about an aerial battle between Batgirl and Roxy Rocket moments after they were sighted in Midtown. She interviewed Maureen and Jordan Hill and Hamilton Hill, Junior after the murder of Mayor Hill. Gleeson has since ventured from Gotham to cover global events in nearby Metropolis that highlighted the Justice League. Gleeson was on hand to witness the League prevent Deadshot from assassinating Aquaman as well as the JLU's near disbanding after Lex Luthor and Brainiac almost destroyed the planet.
