The ASNE-APME conference in Chicago is only a week away. We'd like to continue our introductions of some of our generous sponsors. Meet the The E.W. Scripps Company!
The E.W. Scripps Company serves audiences and businesses through a growing portfolio of television, print and digital media brands. Scripps owns 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 online multi-source video news provider Newsy. Scripps also 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 longest-running and most successful educational programs, the Scripps National Spelling Bee.
In 2015, Scripps and Journal Communications plan to merge their broadcast operations and spin off and then merge their newspapers, creating two focused and separately traded public companies. The merged broadcast and digital media company, based in Cincinnati, will retain The E.W. Scripps Company name. The newspaper company will be called Journal Media Group and will combine Scripps' daily newspapers, community publications and related digital products with Journal Communications' Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, Wisconsin community publications and affiliated digital products. The company will be headquartered in Milwaukee.
