Game of Masks (flashback)
When the ninja watched the news from Dareth's Mojo Dojo, Gayle was reporting on the strong earthquakes hitting Ninjago City. Unbeknownst to anyone at the time, the quakes were being caused by the Serpentine, who were tunneling under Ninjago City in hopes of sinking it.
Dareth tried to inform her of an approaching Stone Warrior, but she ignored his warning until she was lifted into the air by the Warrior. Zane kicked the Stone Warrior out of the way and caught Gayle before she can fall to the ground, after which she joined the rest of the citizens in evacuating in the Destiny's Bounty.
Gayle was among those who turned out for the Royal Blacksmith concert on the Day of the Departed.
At Dareth's bar, the ninja watch Gayle on TV, reporting the Sons of Garmadon leader Harumi's escape. Later, they watch at the police station where Gayle reports the Kryptarium Prison has been taken over by Harumi and Lord Garmadon.
Gayle reports on the news that the garbage depot has been ambushed.
On the TV, Gayle instructs the citizens to leave the city to find safety.
In an alleyway, Gayle and her cameraman are confronted by several Sons of Garmadon, but the Brown Ninja comes in and stops them. Gayle then swoons over him.
Gayle went live on the harbor to report the unveiling of the Bounty.
When Vinny tried to send a message, Gayle told him they have to broadcast soon.
Gayle begins writing a script for the broadcast. When she hears everyone cheering, she is told the ninja were here to rescue them. She was disappointed that she has to rewrite her report but boards the Bounty anyway. She was among those shocked when she heard about Cole falling off, despite her previously grilling him for the ninja ruining her report.
Gayle can be seen celebrating with the ninja in the Monastery of Spinjitzu.
Gayle reports that the ninja and Clutch are about to go inside the pyramid.
Gayle reports, to her annoyance, on a puppy-petting competition before an Elemental Cobra attacks and scares the puppies away. After the interruption, Gayle decides to change her report as she ventures after one of the Elemental Cobras.
When she is back in the air, she spies on Aspheera before she is caught by the serpentine sorceress. After arguing whether the ninja are dead or alive, Aspheera demands Gayle to tell her where the Ninjago Museum of History is located, but Vinny spills the beans as he tells her the location. The two are later taken by Elemental Cobras.
Gayle follows Aspheera into the Museum, and when Aspheera fights the ninja, she and Vinny escape.
Gayle reports the Pyro Vipers invasion in front of the museum.
Gayle is reporting on the Preeminent's arrival in Ninjago City when the Preeminent interrupts her and blows her news helicopter away. She is saved by Samurai X and watches them fight. After Samurai X defeats the Preeminent, she ends her broadcast, thanking Samurai X.
Gayle does an in-depth report on Prime Empire. She goes into some of the histories behind the game and talks to several people who've played the game about their experiences with it.
Okino helps Gayle Gossip escape from the Red Visors. A short time later, she, Okino, and Vinny are surrounded by the Red Visors, but they shut down after Unagami relieved control of them.

- It is unknown why she was not arrested by the Sons of Garmadon, as she had been an ally of the ninja in the past. However, it's possible that none of the Sons of Garmadon knew that she was an ally and thought she was still just a reporter.
- Fred Finely is Gayle's rival.
- She has high regard for herself as a news person.
