History: (Daredevil I#95 (fb) – BTS) – Reporter for KGG-TV in San Francisco, Lucretia Jones was weary of being assigned soft human interest stories on her beat.

(Daredevil I#95) – When editor Ben Caine assigned Lucretia to cover a jewelry store heist, she told Al she was shocked and assumed it was a mistake. She then rushed to the store, where she broadcasted a fight between Daredevil and Black Widow against Man-Bull and Itch, though Daredevil was swiftly defeated.

(Daredevil I#96) – Lucretia kept reporting as Black Widow battled Itch and Man-Bull, while others, including Freddie, recorded. Lucretia soon visited Daredevil in the hospital, where a man monstrously mutated was wheeled in. While Lucretia reacted, Daredevil suddenly disappeared through the window.

(Daredevil I#105) – Lucretia rode with her director, Ashley "Sandy" Sanderson, working with KSG-TV, and he worried that she was getting too involved in the Daredevil/Black Widow coverage.

(Daredevil I#106) – Lucretia and Sandy, hoping to get coverage of the Daredevil and Kraven battle, instead recorded Terrex using the ground and plants against civilians, killing a police officer by aging him. They joined with Lt. Paul Carson and Black Widow as Terrex left, leaving the ground dead around them. The group soon saw Daredevil return with new ally Moondragon and Lucretia and Sandy soon went running into the city to record the upcoming fight.

(Daredevil I#108) – Lucretia reported that "Foggy" Nelson had been shot by a sniper in New York City.

Comments: Created by Gerry Conway, Gene Colan and Tom Palmer.

Lucretia was most certainly (and mistakenly) white in her first appearance, and then black in her second appearance. We can perhaps blame it on the lighting in issue 95? Then, in 108, she appears white on television… maybe we can blame this one on bad reception. She is definitely a black woman.
