Journalism and free speech are cornerstones of a democratic society – and of our company.
From our founder E.W. Scripps’ first edition of The Penny Press, which delivered the daily news to Cleveland’s working class, to today’s investigative documentaries from Newsy and the Scripps Washington Bureau as well as enterprise reporting from our local television stations, Scripps journalists are dedicated to advancing understanding of the world around us.
More broadly, we share news, information and entertainment across an increasing number of media platforms. We know consumer habits are changing, and we evolve to meet their needs. We have claimed a large corner of the digital audio market, with Stitcher and the audience measurement and technology leader Triton. We serve the growing over-the-air audience with our five Katz multicast networks. Local audiences can find all of our brands over the air, over the top, on cable TV and satellite and through digital platforms.
However we deliver news and information, today and in the future, Scripps remains committed to the audiences and communities it serves, staying true to its motto since 1923: “Give light and the people will find their own way.”
“GIVE LIGHT AND THE PEOPLE WILL
FIND THEIR OWN WAY.”
We create a better informed world.
We do well by doing good – creating value for customers, employees and owners by informing, engaging and empowering those we serve.
