Perry White was the managing editor of the Daily Planet.
Perry's first professional experience as a reporter was while working for the Gotham Gazette. For this reason, Perry would allow some of his top reporters, such as Clark Kent and Lois Lane to work over at the Gazette on several occasions.
Perry won his first Pulitzer Prize for the interview through which Superboy revealed that he was from Krypton. He won his second Pulitzer Prize by convincing Superboy to reveal that he'd moved to Metropolis. Perry's third Pulitzer Prize was for getting the exclusive story on the rogue government scientist Calixto and his Army of Tomorrow, having briefly covered it on WGBS-TV before publishing the full story in the Planet.
