The E.W. Scripps Company has raised over $2 million for food banks in 40 markets to help communities during the pandemic. Funds are being distributed to food pantries in the markets where Scripps operates TV stations and its national brands Newsy, the Katz networks and the Scripps Washington Bureau.
“The outpouring of generosity we’ve seen from Scripps audiences across the country is an incredible testament to the connection between our brands and their communities. In addition, this effort underscores the role both local TV and our national brands continue to play in creating a sense of togetherness, particularly in times of need,” said Scripps President and CEO Adam Symson. “We are incredibly thankful to the Scripps Family Impact Fund for investing in our communities and to our audiences for answering the call.”
