National Media

Content brands that engage audiences across geographies and platforms

Today’s media consumers have so many content choices, and they are entirely in control of what they want to read and watch. They also have many new ways of discovering this content.

The Scripps National Media division was designed with this media landscape in mind. The brands that make up the division are focused on national marketplaces rather than specific distribution platforms. Although they are very different kinds of content businesses, their teams share a passion for engaging audiences across geographies and media platforms.


Newsy is a national news network produced by millennials for a millennial audience. Its original programming lineup includes the evening newsmagazine “The Why,” the morning show “The Day Ahead” and the newsmaker spotlight program “30 Minutes With.” Newsy can be found anywhere audiences watch television: through most of the country’s largest cable services, all of the major over-the-top platforms and set-top box content providers as well as at and through its mobile app.


Stitcher is the best place to listen to, produce and monetize podcasts. The Stitcher app, available for iOS and Android devices, is one of the world’s most popular podcast listening platforms, with a growing network of original content and a premium subscription service.
