Episode 8x14 - 'Requiem'
UPDATED 12/21/08: We know nothing about how he factors into this story at all, but the character of Steve Lombard - introduced in the 1970's Superman comics - makes an appearance, where he will be played by Ray Galletti. In the comics, Lombard is generally known as a sports reporter, both on television and in the Daily Planet. Thanks to Andy for the tip.
