Scripps is forging ahead with innovative ways of repackaging news content to adapt to the ever-changing ways information is gathered and delivered to today's audiences. Scripps has proven its commitment to not only producing extraordinary news coverage, but to equipping its employees with the necessary tools to learn, grow and accomplish personal career goals."

Executive Producer

"Scripps is a company that invests in its people. The management of this company understands the value in developing you as part of the Scripps family as you grow. This is my third career path ranging from the U.S. Military, The Coca-Cola Company and now part of the Scripps team. While others have preached investment in their employees, I'm living proof that Scripps lives up to its word. My advice to anyone . . . Scripps will invest in you, if you invest in yourself."

I am fortunate to know and work with so many wonderfully talented people. It's the kind of place where the CEO knows your name. I am proud to call Scripps my second family."
