About Us

The E.W. Scripps Company serves audiences and businesses through a growing portfolio of television, print and digital media brands. After approval of its acquisition of two Granite Broadcasting stations later this year, Scripps will own 21 local television stations as well as daily newspapers in 13 markets across the United States.

It also runs an expanding collection of local and national digital journalism and information businesses including digital video news service Newsy.

Scripps produces television programming, runs an award-winning investigative reporting newsroom in Washington, D.C., and serves as the longtime steward of one of the nation’s largest, most successful and longest-running educational programs, Scripps National Spelling Bee.

Founded in 1879, Scripps is focused on the stories of tomorrow.
