Local brands that improve communities and power their economies
Local Media is not just the anchor of our company but an anchor in the communities we serve from coast to coast.
Every day, Scripps engages large local audiences with the news and information they need to make decisions for their lives. What makes Scripps special is the context and depth of our storytelling.
Today, it is easier than ever to find us. Our local news programs are available on virtual home assistants such as Amazon’s Alexa, on set-top-box services such as Roku and on over-the-top video providers such as YouTubeTV. And of course, we broadcast our local news brands over-the-air and through cable and satellite.
It is our advertising solutions that power the local economy. We create ad campaigns to broaden businesses’ reach and build their customer bases. We provide advertising strategy for all the platforms on which consumers now get our news – from broadcast to digital to over-the-top. We are a marketplace, and we are a partner in local commerce.
In the decades since we received our first FCC license in 1947, our stations have earned many Murrows, duPonts, Peabodys, Scripps Howard Awards and other prestigious journalism industry awards. But what’s most important is that we have stayed focused on a higher purpose: to improve the circumstances of our communities and the lives of those who call them home.
Our local brands include 52 television stations in 36 markets.

Properties by Region
Rather than continue down the same path of renting programming from syndicators, Scripps has returned to its roots of content creation. Its first effort, to replace Wheel of Fortune and Jeopardy with original shows, raised some eyebrows. But a foundation as content creators coupled with a certain amount of risk tolerance positioned Scripps to enjoy the rewards of building shows that are growing in popularity on a local and national scale.
