Newsy is an American news network founded in Columbia, Missouri, in 2008 and acquired by the E. W. Scripps Company in January 2014 for $35 million. Its content can be found on platforms including Verizon FiOS, Comcast Xfinity, Charter Spectrum, Cox, Sling TV, AT&T U-verse, Altice USA, YouTube TV and DirecTV in addition to set-top streaming devices and services such as Roku, Apple TV and Amazon Fire TV.
Newsy was founded in 2008 on the premise of creating quality video journalism that was easily digestible on mobile devices and the web. In its early years, Newsy operated primarily as a syndication business, selling news and original content to major digital journalism brands that included AOL/Huffington Post, Microsoft and Mashable. Since being acquired by E. W. Scripps Company, Newsy has become a national news brand focused on delivering news to millennials and Gen X consumers.
In September 2017, Scripps announced it would take over RLTV's (Retirement Living Television) cable carriage agreements for approximately 26 million subscribers and reprogram the network with Newsy's lineup of shows.
Newsy has six U.S. offices: Columbia, Missouri; Chicago; Cincinnati; New York; Denver; and Washington, DC.
On April 6, 2021, Scripps announced that it would expand Newsy into a free over-the-air network, as well as being available on cable and on streaming platforms, starting October 1. The network would be available over-the-air on Scripps-owned ION stations and on its affiliate stations plus on affiliates from other station groups. It also announced plans to relocate Newsy's national headquarters to Atlanta.
